Princes Among Men

Having gotten over $150 billion in bailout money, insurance giant AIG is now trying to take back
millions they made the mistake of giving for health care for homeless
children, meals for the elderly, youth baseball and other questionable
causes. They are going to court to seize a $490 million charitable
endowment, including $27 million already given out, so they can pay
their executives obscene salaries and bonuses that dwarf what the
homeless kids got but may now lose.

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media 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 our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
