I watch my fair share of professional football. I’ve seen every season of HBO’s Hard Knocks. And yet, I have never seen a would-be lineman bring it the way Joe Biden advisor Symone Sanders just did. The demonstrator had the bad sense to storm the stage at Biden’s speech in Los Angeles on Tuesday night in an attempt to bring her anti-dairy message to a nationally televised audience, and Sanders was having none of it.

Of course she did! 

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
