Ben sent out this message in an email about his Project:
"Ben Swann says:
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!
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.
