Good foreign policy coverage in the mainstream media is even harder to come by than before. Cable news networks are full of corporate-sponsored hawks trying to sell America on the next intervention, and printed articles are indistinguishable from Pentagon press releases. But while honest coverage of the Empire is shrinking, has expanded by adding staff and contributors to provide more original content than we ever have. Of course, we need to pay for it.
