Authentic Journalism: Narco News as You Know It Could End in 15 Days

"Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you got 'til it's gone."                                                               - Joni Mitchell

Dear Friend,

I've always been honest with you.

That's why in all the years that we've been reporting at Narco News I've never used the common fundraising tactic of "crying wolf," of saying we'll have to close shop if we don't reach our money goal. We've learned to get by on a fraction of what others would consider too little to do this work, because it's the work – and not the money – that we love.

But if I'm going to keep being honest with you I have to tell you that I am worried about the future of Narco News and the school, especially if you, the readers, don't get us to our $25,000 goal by May 19 to make a 2015 School of Authentic Journalism possible.

The school is the crown jewel of this project. It's what draws and brings new talent to the work of authentic journalism, and provides for the intensive training of the next generations of those who will carry on this work.
