    The org’s twitter account has been suspended.

    Any pro bono opportunities for attorneys?

    Just give directly to ProPublica and you won’t have 8% of your donation siphoned off to a middleman like Freedom Of The Press Foundation

      and what percentage does ProPublica siphon off?

      • DanEGT says:

         ProPublica doesn’t siphon anything off because it is an acutal “newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.” Freedom of The Press Foundation is an organization that charges 8% to distribute funds to news organizations.

    Very brave of you, Xeni. You are now on the CIA’s shit list for sure. I admire you taking on this risk for all of us.

    Does it really need to be mentioned – again – that John Perry Barlow used to be a lyricist for the Grateful Dead? Are you certain that gives him the same cred it used to in, say, 1992? Let’s all get on the WELL and call each other “Netizens” again while we’re at it.
