With the US "liberal media" now serving, more than ever, as a mammoth fount
of state disinformation—
pushing us toward more and ever bigger wars—Robert Parry is a journalistic
hero, giving us a vital
daily antidote to all those toxic lies.
We can't afford to lose that antidote; and so I'm asking you to help

Independent Investigative Journalism Since 1995
*From the Desk of Robert Parry*
*From Editor Robert Parry:* When we launched Consortiumnews in 1995, our
goal was to be a site for investigative-style journalism, which has
remained our core product to this day. But – to my surprise – a number of
ex-intelligence analysts and former diplomats also were willing to
contribute their knowledge and expertise to this endeavor.
So, we developed a relationship with these former government officials,
many of whom also are part of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for
Sanity. While I realize this connection to the intelligence world worries
some readers, it is my judgment that our readership benefits greatly from
these thoughtful former insiders who know how things really work in
government, much as I have insights into the mainstream media because I
worked in it for many years.
This combination of insider knowledge and a lack of fear about being cast
outside the mainstream for telling the truth is, I think, what makes
Consortiumnews unique and why it is important that we raise enough money to
keep this almost 21-year-old project alive.

or Treason,* which was originally published in 1993 and has been long out
of print. It tells the inside story of my PBS-Frontline investigation of
the 1980 October Surprise mystery (whether Ronald Reagan and George H.W.
Bush sabotaged President Carter’s Iran-hostage negotiations to ensure their
electoral victory). There is also a new “Afterword” that brings the story
up to the present day.
As part of the gift package, we are including a DVD of the Frontline
