Editorial: We Met Our Goal - Thanks So Much

Greetings and Happy New Year.


Thanks to the support of more than 3,050 of you, AlterNet broke through our fundraising goal. With an avalanche of last-minute contributions, we hit the $120k mark, giving us a healthy start to 2016.

This year is going to be interesting, to say the least. We have Bernie Sanders breaking fundraising records with the support of 2.5 million people. We have Trump mania, where any crazy or appalling thing can happen on any day, and often it does. Yet he still leads in the GOP polls. 

The future looks cataclysmic, with a wild mix of the good and the downright horrendous. It seems that life in America will be severely polarized as far as we can see. We will be there covering it, analyzing it 24/7, in part because of your generosity and confidence in our work. And as always, we try to mix a little fun in with the dire news.

Thanks again, and buckle your seat belts: 2016 is going to be unlike anything we have experienced before.

Understand the importance of honest news ?

So do we.

The past year has been the most arduous of our lives. The Covid-19 pandemic continues to be catastrophic not only to our health - mental and physical - but also to the stability of millions of people. For all of us independent news organizations, it’s no exception.

We’ve covered everything thrown at us this past year and will continue to do so with your support. We’ve always understood the importance of calling out corruption, regardless of political affiliation.

We need your support in this difficult time. Every reader contribution, no matter the amount, makes a difference in allowing our newsroom to bring you the stories that matter, at a time when being informed is more important than ever. Invest with us.
