Calling Out The Readers Who Do Not Donate:
Being totally honest we have a lot of people who visit Evergreene Digest all the time and do not donate. That misses the point. This is not an entertainment site. If you want to entertained head on over to the New York Times. That way you get progressive news plus hype, tabloid titillation and good old fashioned T&A.
This is Evergreene Digest. if you want to be a part of changing things, be a part of this. EGD is supported by hard working people of limited means. Don't let them carry the burden by themselves. Chip in, sign up and get on board. You are needed and welcome here.

03/30/2017 | If you’re like a lot of folks, you’ve probably had quite enough of the ongoing media kerfuffle over “fake news.” What started out as an interesting discussion about politics, journalistic ethics, and the truth, has degenerated into a hyper-partisan food fight.
First, President Trump commandeered the term, using it to disparage news outlets he doesn’t like; then commentators and academics on the left responded by branding conservative websites they don’t like as “fake news,” too. By now, the meaning of fake news is largely a matter of partisan opinion – which means the term really has no meaning at all.
