Adelson’s atomic moment: Help us break more video stories

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Last week we scored a big media hit with Phil Weiss and Alex Kane‘s reporting on Sheldon Adelson’s appearance at Yeshiva University. In addition to being featured on Chris Hayes’s show above, it was also picked up in the New York Times, Time, Politico, and BuzzFeed among others. This is an example of one thing we want to do with Mondoweiss: push the conversation into the American mainstream by breaking news.

This story was picked up for several reasons. First, it’s shocking. Adelson is a figure who looms large on the American political scene and this report helped expose some of his true intentions. But in addition to that, the report also featured video. The video gave the story an added dimension — and we want to be able to produce more videos to continue to expand our reach. Please consider giving a tax-deductible donation today to allow us to expand our video capabilities. We want to purchase more video cameras for our reporters and develop our video editing abilities to produce engaging, high-quality video what will further our mission of fostering the movement for greater fairness and justice for Palestinians in American foreign policy.

Please help continue our growth by giving a tax-deductible donation today.

You can bet Chris Hayes people cruise through Mondoweiss.

Guys I am still helping pay off youngest daughters college loans. All extra funds go there.

You deserve big donations for the work you are doing for human rights and social justice. I spread your work around as much as I can.

Sent in a donation!

Well done Mondoweiss! I happened to turn on MSNBC for just a moment last week (I no longer watch it like I used to, since it became largely an Obama propaganda channel), and lo and behold! there was Chris hays showing and talking about the Adelson video. Now, one thing probably allowed him to do that – Adelson is a totally caught in the Republican party embrace and was known to fund many republican candidates… Read more »
