Program 1

Reporting Services (Financial Figures from 2008 form 990)

We report, fly, film, interview and opine day-in and day-out, 24x7, 365. We also scour the global news media for the most important stories we can find. We cover national issues concerning foreign policy, the war in Iraq, ethics in government, voter rights, human rights and the judiciary. We feature unique coverage of women, health, energy, environment and labor issues. We alert our readers to pivotal opinion pieces appearing in major newspapers and journals. Our home page is continually updated to display top headlines and arresting photography and other artwork. And we provide exciting multimedia reports and interviews of the most important national political events. Past assignments have included the 2004 political conventions, several major anti-war rallies, the Downing Street Memo hearings and teach-ins, and Cindy Sheehan's courageous stands at Camp Casey. Finally, we email free daily newsletters to our 250,000 subscribers featuring the day's top stories.
