Seriously Right, And Profitable

Abby Zimet

HarperCollins is joining a bunch of other publishers who have jumped on the fear-mongering, money-making bandwagon with its new Broadside
Books, a division devoted solely to what has become highly profitable right-wing takes on the world. But
no ranting please: head Adam Bellow - son of Saul - says he will "uphold
a standard of intellectual seriousness" with books that are "soberly
argued." Umm, okay. And the fact that its parent company is Rupert
Murdoch's News Corps won't impinge on that aforementioned seriousness, right?

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
