This guy's work is incredible, and the volume with which he pumps it out is equally as astounding. His website is worth a daily visit, but even more so, a donation that one is comfortable making in proportion to their income. James provides all of his open-source work free of charge and lives solely off of the generous who are willing to financially contribute proportionally to his time and effort.
As someone who also runs an alternative media site, I can tell you how disheartening it is to produce media, offer it for free, have hundreds if not thousands of downloads, and not receive any contributions for the effort. That, of course, comes with the territory of offering anything for free, and the message is most certainly more important than the money.
That being said, it costs a lot to operate a website; not only in time and effort, but in hosting fees, domain fees, podcast hosting, etc. It's unrealistic to imagine that one could become an independent journalist full-time from donations, but would it be too much to ask of people to help with the basic costs of keeping sites like Corbett Report online? I think not.
I just donated $10 to The Corbett Report. It's not a lot, but it's the most I can spare. If you like what you see, you should, too; because if you don't, it might not be around one day.
