Taking Out the Garbage

Let us enjoy a brief but blessed moment of celebration in these uncelebratory times: After 20 ill-advised years of racism, misogyny, homophobia, Islamaphobia, lies, rage and, yes, ongoing sexual harassment of women, longtime douchebag, foul-mouthed miscreant, and "bold fresh piece of humanity" Bill O'Reilly is finally out at Fox after they did a "thorough and careful review" of the grotesque mountain of allegations against him - and, oh yeah, after dozens of advertisers abandoned him. Savor some of his awful highlights, wonder why in God's name it took this long, thank the tireless protesters, and hope for more righteous doors hitting more sordid losers on their way out.

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.
