Over the years, one of the most common complaints I’ve received at Consortiumnews.com is why our original reporting doesn’t reach a wider audience.

One way to help is to make sure that our books are available at libraries across the United States.

So, we are offering a 3-for-1 book offer (for only $25) that lets our readers buy a set of books and contribute them to the permanent collections of local or school libraries. By distributing 1,000 book sets this way, we could accomplish two useful goals:

First, the valuable information in Lost History, Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep would be available to many thousands more Americans.

Second, $5 from each purchase would go to Consortiumnews.com’s coffers so we could continue paying our writers for their work and keep the Web site alive.

To help in this endeavor, all you have to do is send a check for $25 (which includes $5 for shipping and $5 to the Web site) to our publishing arm:

The Media Consortium; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201.

Tell us the address for delivering the books. (We can ship them directly to the libraries, but it's more effective if you submit them as a local citizen or alumnus.)

Other payment options include sending us your Visa/Mastercard data by mail.

Or you can submit your payment as an online donation to Consortiumnews.com, but in that case, you must send us an e-mail – to consortnew@aol.com – explaining that you want the payment to go for the 3-for-1 offer and telling us where to ship the books.)

As always, thanks for your support.

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.
