This #GivingTuesday, whatever is your first priority, your second priority has to be independent media.

2021 has been one of the most dangerous and difficult years for independent journalism that we’ve ever seen. Our democracy is facing existential threats including the climate emergency, vaccine apartheid amid deadly pandemic, a global crisis for biodiversity, reproductive freedoms under assault, rising authoritarianism worldwide, and corporate-funded corruption of democracy that run beneath all of this. Giving Tuesday is a critical opportunity to make sure our journalism remains funded so that we can stay focused on all your priority issues. Please contribute today to keep Common Dreams alive and growing.

Please Help This #GivingTuesday -- Though our content is free to all, less than 1% of our readers give. We’re counting on you. Please help Common Dreams end the year strong.

Clarity and Reason and Truth Oh My: Fauci Offers Steadfast Shelter From the Storm

In an hour-long interview - full sentences! many facts! - he blasted slimy GOP efforts to turn public health into cheap political theater and calmly insisted, "That's OK, I'm just going to do my job and I'm going to be saving lives and they're going to be lying."
