A message from Between The Lines' executive producer, Scott Harris

Dear Between The Lines Listeners:

If the next three-and-a-half years continue on the same track as the last several months of the Trump administration, the U.S. and the world will be facing multiple crises like nothing we've seen before. Beyond coverage of the growing number of Trump administration scandals, Between The Lines is committed to providing in-depth analysis and commentary on issues ranging from the conflicts of interest and corruption among the multi-millionaires and billionaires in the Trump Cabinet, tax and budget policies that exacerbate current record levels of income inequality, the wholesale weakening of environmental protections and climate regulations, targeted attacks on racial and religious minorities and immigrants, White House support for white supremacists and violent nationalist groups, the overturning of criminal justice reforms and civil rights laws, the advocacy of policies intentionally designed to deny health care to millions of Americans and the reckless and irrational response to international crises that threaten to trigger deadly and unnecessary military conflict.

Between The Lines Radio Newsmagazine will continue to be a place people can turn to find voices of resistance engaged in the existential struggle to defend our democratic values and shield the nation's most vulnerable from attacks inspired by racism and hatred, fueled by ignorance.

You can make an online donation here.

When Between The Lines' Radio Newsmagazine first began in 1991 in response to the first Persian Gulf War, for many years our program was one of a relatively small handful of independent progressive broadcast outlets in the U.S. that operated in the interest of countering the blatant propaganda of the right. One of our most important goals, then, as now, is to reach low-information voters with timely, in-depth progressive analysis and commentary on major issues of the day, and to act as a bulwark against cynical manipulation by immoral, unprincipled and shameless right-wing politicians and their propagandists. Between The Lines' producers also regularly bring you visionary voices advocating for a new sustainable economy based on equality and social justice.

Without your financial support, Between The Lines would not exist. So please consider making a contribution to support initiatives we need for the future -- including resources for special programming, designed to reach new listeners. The funds you provide will help expand the reach of this information-rich programming on the radio, Internet and across social media. For your donation, we have thank you gifts (see below).
