Are you a fan of independent journalism and want to support premium muckraking in the Trump era? Do you think it would be nice for our writers to be able to pay for coffee in the morning as they comb through leaked documents and data to find the juiciest, sexiest revelations about
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH?
Then consider helping finance our individual writers and their long-term projects in during a presidential administration that promises to be the stuff journalistic dreams are made of! Select a writer from our awesome assemblage of radical writers below and pledge to support their efforts.
|Ken Silverstein||I’m a long-time investigative journalist who has been fired repeatedly due to clashes with management and editors. I’m currently an incredibly underpaid contributing writer for VICE and columnist for the New York Observer. I’m based in Washington — the very best place to dredge up bullshit because it’s the city’s chief manufactured product. My favorite topic, broadly speaking, is the grey world — where governments and criminals secretly collaborate. My stories have landed people in prison, launched U.S. congressional investigations, led to FBI raids, and brought down one of the most “prestigious” banks in Washington — Riggs, which was laundering money for dictators like Augusto Pinochet of Chile and Teodoro Obiang of Equatorial Guinea, not to mention Saudi diplomats tied to the 9/11 attacks. I’ve worked on staff as an investigative reporter with the Los Angeles Times’s Washington office and as the Washington correspondent for Harper’s magazine. As a journalist I have no loyalties to anyone except the readers, which is why I attack all sides, right, center and left. I’m a writer, not an activist. I pursue great stories even if they’re about a person or a cause I admire, though it’s always more fun to go after the world’s sleaziest politicians and mobsters.

|Andrew Stewart||I was raised Irish Catholic, now I’m an American. Ya know, you grow. -George Carlin
I’ve been writing for a variety of periodicals since 2005 and started out doing arts and entertainment writing. But very quickly I learned from a mentor in journalism that most politicians today are nothing more than failed stage performers. So I think I am in a perfect position owing to the fact we have our first game show host president! I have specialized in reporting on financial and economic policy, the corruption usually stemming from it, and the aftermath (or should I say after-mess?)

|Melissa Garriga||I am an occasional writer for WashingtonBabylon.com I just want to uncover corruption and hypocrisy amongst politicians and bourgeoisie and expose them. I pick no favorites when it comes to party affiliation because they are all guilty in some fashion. I have a natural ability to get people to talk and I love digging deep into a story. I am humbly asking for support so that I can continue to investigate the dirty world of the politically elite. I also assist Babylon with investigations by research, interviews and working with booking agents and publishers to get access to information prior to release. I take special interest in healthcare, social justice movements, and “war on terror” propaganda. With the right amount of time and resources, I can uncover great stories without bias.
