On September 1st, Crooks and Liars will celebrate our 16th year online. We are all very grateful and thankful for our readers' continued support of the work that we been doing every day since, -- roughly 5840 straight days.
We were the first weblog to create the usage of video news on blogs. Without any framework in place to do so we've published over 40,000 videos. I don't doubt we have one of the largest archives of videos documenting political events over the past 16 years of any independent news website.
As blogging and online communities have grown over time, online revenues have changed, too. Since 2012, it's been completely controlled by Google, Facebook, and political consultants and we are at the mercies of their newest algorithms that they change whenever they want. You are the only ones who keep us afloat and we want to thank you for your contribution.
