Please Donate to the Marcy Wheeler Investigative Blogging Fund

Marcy Wheeler made the front page of the New York Times  with her scoop about about Khalid Sheik Mohammed being waterboarded 183 times in one month.  It's not the first time she's been there -- her liveblogging of the Libby trial was one of the seminal moments in online journalism.  In fact, her work on the CIA leak case set the model for "crowd sourcing" that many others have since copied.  Again and again, she's demonstrated the investigative skills that show what bloggers and those using online tools are uniquely capable of doing. 

But nobody is willing to fund that work, so we're starting a fund to raise money for Marcy's work.  We want to raise $150,000 to support Marcy, another investigative blogger to work with her and a researcher to help them. All money raised by this campaign will go directly to this effort.
