Once again, the economy is front and center on “Left, Right & Center” — and with good reason. Bernie Madoff’s gone to jail, but the fallout continues in the wake of his company’s implosion; Jon Stewart has given Jim Cramer quite the televised talking-to; and there’s good reason to believe the American people still aren’t hearing the full story about how their financial and political leaders got them into this mess.



If you're reading this, you probably already know that non-profit, independent journalism is under threat worldwide. Independent news sites are overshadowed by larger heavily funded mainstream media that inundate us with hype and noise that barely scratch the surface. We believe that our readers deserve to know the full story. 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.

Like you, we believe a well-informed public that doesn’t have blind faith in the status quo can help change the world. Your contribution of as little as $5 monthly or $35 annually will make you a groundbreaking member and lays the foundation of our work.
