Op-Ed: Shameless Fund-Raising: We Need Your Support!
The AlterNet team has launched our critical fall campaign to raise $50,000. As a non-profit media source, we depend on our readers' support for our financial health. In exchange we are committed to delivering high-quality, provocative journalism and opinion writing from the best writers available.
- We produce more than 100 original articles a week by our in-house pros and some of the foremost independent journalists in the world.
- We harvest more than 100 articles a week from more than 140 of the best sources of independent content. Who has time to visit all those sites? We do.
- We have a smorgasbord of content from aggressive investigations to moving personal stories to fact-filled indictments of the system.
- We have the toughest analysis of right-wing craziness, corporate abuse and really bad policies.
- Because there is a long battle ahead, we understand that the personal is political. Satisfaction and success might be at the local level with organic food; at the personal level with relationships; at the family level with education and religion or atheism. We cover health, drugs, sex, culture and everything that makes us interesting human beings.
