Happy Birthday to the Brad Blog
For seven years Brad Friedman has overseen one of the Web’s indispensable independent media outlets for coverage of all things “unraveling,” but especially the under-reported scandal that is election theft. Be sure to stop by and send Brad a birthday wish.

Here we are. A full seven years as of today, after I began, on a complete lark, what I had thought would be little more than something to keep me occasionally occupied after I had finished up a different project I’d worked on for five years prior. I had no idea or hopes for what it would, and has become — or that it would keep me from being able to make the living I had been able to before starting — or even that I’d find myself, with disturbing regularity, having nearly front-row seats to moments of historic importance, as witness to the unraveling of a nation.
But here we are. Seven years later, and still at it, still digging, still fighting, still crying, still laughing, still witnessing in wonder as the unraveling continues, and still more disturbed by it all than I could have ever even imagined.

Truthdig writers bravely dig beneath the headlines to give you thought-provoking, investigative reporting and analysis that tells you what’s really happening and who’s rolling up their sleeves to do something about it.
