After much work and effort (and a little stress), I can announce that the IRS has granted 501(c)(3) designation to Public Multimedia Inc. (PMI), the non-profit news organization born of my blogging efforts. This means that all donations made to PMI are 100% tax deductible.
PMI is at a critical stage of its development. I need your help. Please consider donating today to PMI and help move PMI from its nascent state to a full-fledged news organization.
In order to further our mission to provide reporing and analysis on The Long War, PMI will be supporting 3 embeds in the upcoming days. We are fully sponsoring 2 embeds: Wes Morgan, an ROTC cadet from Princeton University who writes for the Daily Princetonian, will be embedding in Iraq with General Petreaus and his staff in Baghdad; and Bradley Patty, a military contractor who has written on intelligence and counterinsurgency, who will be reporting from the Philippines with U.S. special operations forces and the Armed Forces of Philippines. In addition, PMI will be providing Michael Totten with insurance for his current embed in Iraq. I also anticipate traveling back to Iraq in September to report on the progress of the surge.
PMI will also launch a new Web site called the Long War Journal where I will post my regular news and analysis. You will continue to receive the reporting you have come to expect at The Fourth Rail. Through PMI and the Long War Journal, I will be able to hire additional writers and staff to provide thorough news coverage of the various aspects of global terrorism threats.
Your support has allowed me to make it this far, from a guy with computer blogging in his spare time to a full-time writer covering the Long War and supporting embeds of several writers, including myself. I honestly could not be where I am today without your generous financial assistance. Thank you for your continued support.
