OpedNews is unique and worthy of your support.


We're having a tough time making budget in this pre-election month. We're about $1100 short. Please help.

There's no other website that does what we do.

We publish great writing by we-the-people, Joe and Jane, Juan and Juanita, Mikhail and Muhammed and Yossi, Zin... everyday people from all over the globe. And we also publish the best progressive, lefty big names-- Hedges, Roberts, Nichols, Scheer, Pilger, Greenwald, Hartmann, Wolf, Klein-- over 100 top names.

I can't think of a single other site that does what we do. We do it with a very bottom up approach, with over 50 volunteer editors, using a unique content management system that allows members to create polls, post articles and diaries. Opednews (ON) is one of only 4500 news sites indexed by google news. That means that when you write an article for ON, and mention someone, or some group, google alerts send messages to people tracking their or their group's name. We reach the people at the top-- the people in power.

So, please, support us if you believe in us.
