RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Daily Kos is a blogging platform created by Markos Moulitsas, a former US Army soldier. It focuses on issues of interest to American Progressives.

Daily Kos has a stable of regular contributors and has also run posts by politicians including Barack Obama[1], John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

The front page features news about American politics. Its viewpoint is usually from a Keynesian social democratic position so it's just as harsh on Barack Obama[2] as it is on conservative politicians.

Readers can open an account and contribute to the site. Daily Kos accepts posts on virtually any topic.

Other stuff[edit]

Every year, Daily Kos hosts Netroots Nation, a convention for progressives. It features presentations, panels and guests ranging from politicians to economists to bloggers. In addition, it is a member of Act Blue which helps to fundraise for progressively-minded candidates (and one data aggregator[3]).

They also host Brainwrap, a one-man operation working to quantify the effects of the Affordable Care Act.[4]
