About emptywheel

Every day, I put out high quality content at emptywheel.net on civil liberties and national security (and sometimes football). To keep my research and writing going without becoming beholden to corporations or Beltway thinktanks, I'm asking my readers to chip in here to help cover my reporting costs.

If I reach this goal, I can send out a twice-weekly digest of my posts, news appearances, and talks, as well as important related articles -- curated reads separating the useful from the bullshit.
