Coming up on the Matthew Filipowicz show, Professor Noam Chomsky is here to discuss Occupy Wall Street’s one year anniversary and how progressives and activists should approach the 2012 election.
We’ll also discuss Rahm Emanuel’s City Council Floor Leader threatening to take away Chicago Teachers’ right to strike, President Obama opening 38 million more acres of the Gulf coast for off-shore drilling, and Tar Sands Blockade activists climbing and occupying 80 foot tall trees to block the Keystone XL Pipeline.
We need to update you on where Truthout stands.
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.
