Assange: Dig Down

Abby Zimet

Bravo to Julian Assange and Wikileaks, whose massive release of U.S. military files on Afghanistan show "the true nature of this war." Assange insists on the ancient and honorable duty of journalism to "take on powerful abuses" - including untold numbers of civilian deaths - and to tell an ugly truth that fewer and fewer media sources are willing to dig for. We salute him. Much powerful material here.

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
