Newsbud Phase 3 Kickstarter Campaign has launched!

We have launched our Kickstarter Phase 3 Campaign, and we need your help again. We have 45 days to raise $115,000, and we know we can do it with your support!

We have taken enormous steps forward thanks to your funding of our previous two campaign phases. Now we need your help to achieve this next step so we can continue building our 100% people-funded independent media outlet.

Please help. Make a pledge and put the word out by telling everyone in your social-media networks.

Without you, we cannot achieve our dream of a media outlet that is nonpartisan and accountable only to its viewers and to the truth. Make a donation, subscribe, and activate others. They have rendered we the people irrelevant; together, we will make them irrelevant!



Thank you for all your support,
