Warmongers Pollute the 'Mainstream' Media –
          where can you turn for honest coverage?

The "mainstream" media isn't what it used to be – or maybe it is what it used to be, and that's just not good enough anymore. Either way, it's no longer safe for human consumption. The government has pumped the mainstream full of lies and spin, and if the Iraq war has taught us anything, it's to be skeptical not only of government pronouncements, but of reporters who treat those pronouncements as if they were "news."

Where can intelligent citizens quench their thirst for real news?

For over a decade, Antiwar.com has spoken truth to power without fear or favor. When "respectable" newspapers and television networks said that the Iraqis had weapons of mass destruction, we said "Balderdash!" When they reported Dick Cheney's claim of an Iraq-9/11 link as fact, we reported the mountains of evidence to the contrary. When they covered the destruction of Saddam's statue as if it were an authentic mass rally, we covered it as a pseudo-event staged by the U.S. government. In every case, we were right.

You can depend on Antiwar.com to tell you the truth – and that's a precious thing these days.

How much is the truth worth to you? It's hard to put a price tag on such a valuable commodity, but with Antiwar.com you're getting a real bargain. All we need to continue providing this invaluable service is a mere $70,000 – but we must count on our readers to provide it.

Your tax-deductible contribution to Antiwar.com is the lifeblood that keeps us going, and we need a transfusion now. Without your support, we won't be able to give you the kind of coverage you've come to expect. Contribute today!

On the first three days of our drive, 258 of you gave a total of $15,137. We need to pick up the pace, please help us reach our goal of $70,000 to keep Antiwar.com running for the next quarter.
