Muppet Labs — Ghost Hunt. It is not just Muppet Labs that are looking for ghosts. We all are. The ghost of our democracy. The ghost of our Constitution and its protections. The ghost of an independent press. The ghosts of elected officials enacting the will of the people. The ghost of the rule of law.
I am thankful I found Firedoglake and am proud to call it my online home. Here, the truth still exists. There is no corporation putting shareholder profits over reporting the truth. At FDL you find the news that is not reported by Wall Street media. At FDL, you find journalism covering whistleblowers like Snowden, Manning, and Kiriakou, marijuana reform, marriage equality, efforts to reduce mass incarceration, fracking, and the ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima. Here you will find support for protesters and community organizing such as Occupy, Tar Sands/Keystone XL, the Detroit Water Brigade, Ferguson, and reporting on police brutality and the militarization of the police. FDL puts movements ahead of politicians and parties.
It takes money to keep FDL going. It takes money to put down the attacks on the site. It takes money to upgrade and update our site to bring about a more stable, modern version of Firedoglake.
