Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) launched a new website today providing oversight on corporate malfeasance and the intersection between business and government. CREW's Melanie Sloan said CorporateCrackdown.org will "give the American public a place to go to learn about credit card company rip offs, payday lenders’ unprincipled activities, and defense contractors’ crooked dealings."
FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
