Connie, I wanted to follow up on the email that Michael sent you.
We all know Trump lies A LOT. He has been in the White House for over 500 days and he has told over 3000 lies. (I’ll let you do that math.) But here’s the really sad thing: there are a lot of people in this country that believe his lies—and they vote.
Sinclair Broadcasting, Fox News, Breitbart and all the other right-wing conservative media outlets just fuel his lies with more propaganda. Daily Kos might be the largest progressive news site on the internet—but it’s increasingly hard to breakdown the lies and expose the truth against the cacophony of conservative media.
Daily Kos doesn’t have the deep pockets and billionaire support that right-wing outlets have. Instead, we have thousands of donors like you that give what they can. We really can’t do the work we do without you.

Connie, Sinclair Broadcasting is forcing its 100-plus stations nationwide to air a puff piece aboutSarah Huckabee Sanders. Last week, they issued a “must-air” segment on Trump’s cruel family separation policy.
Right-wing propaganda outfits like Sinclair and Fox News created the environment that allowed Trump to get elected. Now they’re doing everything they can to keep his white supremacist base angry and engaged ahead of this year’s midterm elections.
Media outlets like these overwhelm progressive media. It’s not even close. And progressives will never be able to beat conservatives until we have a left-wing media infrastructure that can rival theirs.
You don’t need to look far to see how these outlets are morphing into state TV outfits for Trump. Just look at this supercut of Fox coverage.
Right now, Daily Kos is about $173,561 from our June goal. And we don’t have big corporate sponsors or billionaire backers like right-wing media do. We have you. Almost half of our revenue comes from readers like you.
