IMAGINE a news room that never has to worry about upsetting a corporate advertiser. Imagine an editorial team that brings its progressive values and worldview to the newsroom each day. Imagine an outlet that worries about peace and justice, the common good, and the survivability of the planet instead of quarterly earnings, the needs of private equity investors, or a publisher trying to maximize returns.
While the corporate media system lies to its audience day after day, Common Dreams has a different model. But this model is only possible because of you. Our Summer Campaign is underway. Can you please chip in what you can—no amount is too large or too small—to help keep us going?
