There’s no place like CounterPunch, it’s just that simple. And as the radical space within the “alternative media”(whatever that means) landscape continues to shrink, sanctuaries such as CounterPunch become all the more crucial for our political, intellectual, and moral survival. Add to that the fact that CounterPunch won’t sell you Extra Super Duper Mega Chelated Zinc suppositories, ultra-above-top-secret silver and gold coins and bullion, or the authentic, certified Oath Keepers starter pack with American flag bandana and optional tribal design tattoo.
So it should be clear why CounterPunch needs your support: so it can keep doing what it’s been doing for nearly 20 years. As CP Editor, Jeffrey St. Clair, succinctly explained, “We lure you in, and then punch you in the kidneys.” Pleasant and true though that may be, the hard-working CP staff is more than just a few grunts greasing the gears of the status quo. CounterPunch has recently launched a new and improved website which greatly expands its reach, and makes navigation, research, and social media integration easy. Also, CounterPunch continues to produce a print magazine that is second to none in terms of the consistent quality of the writing as well as the unique artwork featured in every issue.
We have also recently launched CounterPunch Radio, my new-ish podcast available for free from CounterPunch and via iTunes. The show has already featured regular CounterPunch contributors such as John Pilger, Pepe Escobar, and Michael Hudson, and will bring many more top shelf guests and top notch analysis (if I do say so myself) in the coming weeks and months. By donating to CounterPunch, you’re also donating to CounterPunch Radio and helping me (always good, as far as I’m concerned).
So come on, be a pal, make a tax deductible donation to CounterPunch today. Do it because you want to. Do it because you know what CounterPunch is worth. Do it because CounterPunch needs you.
Just do it already!
