This week I will be posting the 2nd episode in Season 2.5 of the podcast series. I also have some posts related to the Right-wing media, gun violence, and propaganda that are a follow-up to the essay here (which thanks to you and other readers is doing well on Facebook with 3k shares so far). I am also scheduled for Ring of Fire Radio this weekend where I will talking about the Right-wing noise machine and its relationship to the recent Las Vegas white supremacist shooting.
In addition, and if you have not read Cord Jefferson's "The Racism Beat", I do urge you to do so.
I will be sharing some thoughts on Jefferson's very real truth-telling about how "the race beat" can be exhausting and trying to one's mental health and well-being.
We are a bit short of last year's fundraising amount--I would guesstimate the difference is 20%. It would be great to close that gap so that I can pull back in the begging bowl and stop doing the money dance in the next few days.
Once more, and again, your kindness and generosity is appreciated.
