Among the diverse offerings of rabble.ca, Karl Nerenberg's Hill Dispatches are an especially valuable resource. We need his informed and robust probing in the halls of Parliament, driven by a principled skepticism that cuts through rhetoric and demands evidence. Indeed the health of our democracy and quality of our governance depend upon this kind of work. ~Christopher Neal, Former journalist and international development professional in Canada, now a communications manager at the World Bank.
If you’re a news junkie (you're reading this after all) you know that Parliament is back in session. (Check out KarlNerenberg’s recent piece The environment, equality and the permanent election campaign.) You know that a lot goes on there that is not reported or is under-reported. Please support Karl Nerenberg’s work covering parliament today! We need Karl’s keen eye and analysis.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
