Washington editor David Corn has been named a fellow in the “Security and Liberty in the Post-9/11 Era” reporting program of the Institute for Justice and Journalism at the USC Annenberg School. Nation contributing editor Marc Cooper, a senior fellow at the institute, will also participate in the program, which begins in November.

Congratulations to contributing editor Jon Wiener and the ACLU of Southern California for winning a court order for the release of the last ten pages of John Lennon’s FBI file. Wiener, author of Gimme Some Truth: The John Lennon FBI Files, sees a “strange but distinct resonance” between the order and the start of the Vote for Change concert tour (see Wiener’s web-only report, “Rocking the Vote–From 1972 to 2004”).

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish every day at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

As a Nation reader, you are likely an engaged progressive who is passionate about bold ideas. I know I can count on you to help sustain our mission-driven journalism.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.

Onwards,

Katrina vanden Heuvel
Editorial Director and Publisher, The Nation
