Anyone who isn't paying Judd Legum for a subscription to his newsletter is not doing as much as they can for the world. His emails have caused multinational corporations to do an about-face on DOZENS of major issues.
He is a one man integrity wrecking ball.
Say one thing and do another? Judd will find out.
And all of the major media outlets pick up his stories within a day of him posting them.
He's DOING THE WORK. So throwing him a few bucks a month is a Good Deed and increasing the amount of good and integrity in the world.
I support both his work, and Heated, which is a similar independent-jounalist project that focuses on climate change issues. I get their emails every morning, and am proud to be a supporter of the work they do.
He did a thing questioning why, exactly, every major grocery store carries the National Enquirer despite the fact that they're a partisan hack job that exists primarily to launder money. Nobody picked that up, unfortunately.
I think the National Enquirer is kinda of like the Sunday Paper and the advertising circulars that are dumped in our mail boxes every day... they are a force of nature that just need to be endured. Like mosquitos. Getting rid of them would definitely damage some other part of the ecosystem we actually place value on...! :-)
