Editorial: We Met Our Goal—Thanks So Much

Support from readers put AlterNet over the top.

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. 

Don Hazen is the executive editor of AlterNet.
