That is not how kickstarter

That is not how kickstarter works. The creator of the drive sets the pledge goal, not the donators. The $250k that is pledged now is what people have promised to pay if the Kickstart reaches its goal, Ben set the overall goal at $1.25 mill.

I donated to Ben but...

...I want to let people know to also put aside some of your money for donations to (self-described "forensic journalist") Russ Baker's website: WhoWhatWhy.com. I strongly encourage people to check that site out.

Ben sent out this message in an email about his Project:

"Ben Swann says:

Friends,
I am so honored by the nearly 4,000 people who have contributed over a quarter of a million dollars in just over 30 days to the Truth In Media project! Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal which means that if we do not reach the 1.25 million in 10 days (and we almost certainly will not) then your credit card will not be charged.

Here is where I would like to ask for your help once again. With the $267,000 dollars we have raised already, we have reached 20% of our goal. While we cannot produce 100 episodes of Ben Swann Full Disclosure, we could do a scaled version of this plan and roll out 20 episodes.

Here is what I propose. If you go to http://www.benswann.com there is an option to donate via paypal. If we can move the $267,000 in backing to paypal we will not have to pay the kickstarter and amazon fees. We WILL still honor the rewards from here on kickstarter.

There are 297 of you who have pledged $75, to this project. That means that together you have pledged $22,275 toward Truth in Media. If you would simply move that backing to Paypal, we can move this project forward together!

LibertyisRising!"

I donated the $75.00 I pledged at Kickstarter to his Paypal. Not much I know. But as he says, together with the rest of the 296 seventy-five dollar backers it adds up to $22,275.

Given that the 'Press-titutes' will not report the truth, our only remaining sources for real investigative journalism are crowd funded by donation or, as with Infowars, purchasing products or memberships.
Remember, if you buy the marketed items shown on commercials at the MSM's, you're helping fund them.
Which would YOU rather sponsor? At the moment you're given a choice. Doubtful that will last if we all take folks like Ben and Alex's efforts for granted.
Just sayin'. Think about it.

Thinks for posting this. I

Thinks for posting this. I wasn't aware of what his back up plan was but will donate to his paypal.

Your report is incorrect.

Your report is incorrect.

As of this moment people have pledged $245,486.

Ben's goal is $1.25 million.

At Kickstarter pledge and payment are effectively not separate transactions.

I'm surprised

We have never seen one liberty donation event fail really. So I hope everyone gives like they said they would. Ben's event needs to stay on the top page.
