Yesterday we began our Quarterly Fundraising for our truly independent news website operating without a single penny from any foundations, corporations or agenda-pumping partisan interests. Boiling Frogs Post has been operating on a very modest and tight budget, yet it has been expanding due to our commitment to countering the mainstream and pseudo-alternative propaganda outlets. By modest I mean ‘extremely modest’. I marvel when I see or read about the amount of funding people receive for operating sites that do not deliver even one-tenth of what we have been providing here at this website. The other day I came across this ‘Rich Men’s Website’:
This ‘Rich Men’s Website’ asks for and receives at least $320,000 a year- $80,000 per quarter, to deliver daily aggregated news that comes mainly from a few mainstream outlets such as Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times, BBC, and the like. They have no radio shows. They don’t produce a single podcast show (syndicating is not producing, ey!). They don’t produce a single video report. They don’t have a single reporter with original reporting. No complex website or needed database … Yet, for a site that would take less than 5 hours a day to run, they receive $320,000 a year plus other funding through their ‘angels.’
I tell you what: We are envious. Compared to this ‘Rich Men’s Site’ here is what we do: We produce on average FOUR original in-depth and independent podcast shows per week with no commercials or outside funding-here, here, here, and here. We produce a weekly investigative and original video report that is truly unmatched- check it out here. We bring to you in-depth nightly news from several dozen sources (we do not include MSM outlets such as Washington Post, NY Times, Time Magazine, etc.). We publish daily analyses and articles by truly independent experts and authors. We even produce our own original political cartoons.
And guess what? We are bringing all the above mentioned (in addition to our cloud hosting cost, server webhosting cost, payment processors’ cost, and website technical support costs) with funding that is far less than One Quarter of the Rich Men’s Site!!!!
You know what I’m thinking? Here is what I’m thinking: If we were a rich site like that we’d have daily video reports, several daily podcast shows, our own team of investigative reporters, the best-looking website, and so much more!! Of course, that is if we were a rich site Yubby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dibby Dum …
Please help us continue and expand- for the independent truth, and for all of us. You can help counter the project ‘Dumb-ification of the Masses.’ Yes, you certainly can, and here is how:
