The presence, loudness and immeasurable lunacy of so many right-wing
nutcases abroad in the land pose a dilemma for the media. Cover every
grotesque sign comparing Obama to Hitler and every earnest Town Hall
loyalist claiming

hope the whole sorry mess goes away? Can you counter insanity with facts?

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
