In These Times

Noam Chomsky isn’t just a lifelong reader of In These Times — he was also one
of our very first donors. In fact, he made his first donation to In These Times in
1975, a year before the inaugural issue was published.
For Noam Chomsky and our other founding sponsors—including Julian
Bond, Barbara Ehrenreich, Daniel Ellsberg, Michael Harrington, David DuBois,
Naomi Weisstein and many others—the mission of In These Times was critical.
They saw the need for an independent publication to inform and critically analyze
the emerging new movements on the American left. They also understood the
ways in which corporate media too often ignores or misrepresents progressive
causes—leaving too many important voices unheard.
