Limbaugh's $400 Million; Our $40,000

By Robert Parry
July 30, 2008

We don’t want to be counted as part of Phil Gramm’s “nation of whiners,” but we are disappointed that our mid-year fund-raiser is coming up so short.

We never expected anything like Rush Limbaugh’s $400 million, but $40,000 – or one-hundredth of 1 percent of Limbaugh’s contract – didn’t seem that unreasonable. Yet, we haven’t reached even one-half of our goal.

So, we’ve decided to cut the goal by half, to only $20,000. That does mean we will have to reduce what we cover and what we can pay our writers, but please help us reach at least that modest target.

Give what you can in this crucial election year. Contributions can be made by credit card at the Web site or by sending a check to:

Thank you.

Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek. He founded in 1995 as the Internet's first investigative magazine. He saw it as a way to combine modern technology and old-fashioned journalism to counter the increasing triviality of the mainstream U.S. news media.
