Taking the Bite Out of Government Watchdogs

The Sentinel team takes a close look at the Flint water crisis, an immigration case, workers’ rights and the federal inspector general.

As Flint deals with a water crisis, the GOP Senate attempts to repeal clean water rules. The Supreme Court agrees to hear a major immigration case. And what rights do workers have to complain about their employer on social media?

Also, the Sentinel team takes a close look at an increasingly hostile relationship between the Obama administration and federal inspectors general.

Briefly, we wanted to update you on where Truthout stands this month.

To be brutally honest, Truthout is behind on our fundraising goals for the year. There are a lot of reasons why. We’re dealing with broad trends in our industry, trends that have led publications like Vice, BuzzFeed, and National Geographic to make painful cuts. Everyone is feeling the squeeze of inflation. And despite its lasting importance, news readership is declining.

To ensure we stay out of the red by the end of the year, we have a long way to go. Our future is threatened.

We’ve stayed online over two decades thanks to the support of our readers. Because you believe in the power of our work, share our transformative stories, and give to keep us going strong, we know we can make it through this tough moment.

We’ve launched a campaign to raise $45,000 in the next 7 days. Please consider making a donation today.
