an initial surge, the flow of contributions to our fundraising
drive has slowed almost to a crawl. If this keeps up, we could
be witnessing the end of Antiwar.com as we know it. If we
don't make our minimum fundraising goals, we will most definitely
be making radical cutbacks in our coverage, including no updates
for days on end – and the de facto end of the best, the biggest,
the most informative antiwar Web site of them all.
this how you want to start off four
more years of the War Party's hegemony in Washingtion?
use this site – for free. But you know what? Nothing
not a fancy operation: no executive lunches (heck, we don't
even have any executives!), no frills, no folderol.
Antiwar.com is all about the basic business of getting out
the facts, and keeping track of the lies our government is
constantly putting out there in order to justify the unjustifiable.
has to do it.
is ridiculous that we have to get down on our knees and beg
like this – no less than four times a year. It's ridiculous
because we've earned your support – several times over.
Antiwar.com is now one of the most
popular all-news Web sites on the Internet – and we did
it without corporate backing, without big donors, and without
the ceaseless plugs from the so-called mainstream media that
pushed the much-overrated "warbloggers"
to the fore.
put, we will go out of business very shortly if we don't make
our goal. Starting this Monday, we may be making radical cutbacks
in coverage and personnel – if we don't make up the shortfall
on Friday and over the weekend. As of last night, 719 of you
have contributed $30,000. We need to reach $50,000 in order
to continue for the next quarter.
just can't continue without your support, and if you think
that's fundraising hyperbole, then think again. Please make
your contribution today – so that you don't wake up one morning,
go to your computer, log on to Antiwar.com – and come up with
nothing, nada, zilch – a blank space where the truth
help us keep up the good fight.
