Firedoglake is getting bigger and better.
Over the last couple of years, we've had some great opportunities to make a difference, from getting the Washington Post to correct the statement that Jack Abramoff gave "a lot of money to Democrats" to sending nearly 15,000 letters to newspaper editors in all 50 states against an AP smear piece on Obama. And while we've been working to improve our country, it's high time that we made some improvements ourselves.
With all the traffic we gathered after moments like covering the Scooter Libby trial and collecting 32,000 signatures on our FEC complaint on John McCain, we're at a point where our servers and our staff are stretched to the limit. And I'm hoping you can help.
Please consider donating $35 or more to help Firedoglake keep getting better.
We've already started to bring in more people and we're buying more bandwidth so we can continue to deliver the best progressive news, opinion, and actions. Hopefully you've noticed some of the recent changes on the site, like Cliff Schecter, author of "The Real McCain," joining to cover election politics, Laura Flanders' daily web video show GritTV, and David Niewert as our new managing editor. With a bit of help, you can expect to see more to come.
Thank you so much for helping build this community, and for the work you do to change our country for the better.
