Consortium News: "3-for-the-price-of-1 book offer to libraries" - Discomfit Magazine

Readers often ask us what more can be done to get the valuable information they find at to a wider audience.

One way is to take advantage of our 3-for-the-price-of-1 book offer and then to donate the three books - Lost History, Secrecy & Privilege, and Neck Deep - to your community or school library.

If we could get the books into the collections of 1,000 libraries, hundreds of thousands of people would have access to the honest history that the books present - from the Reagan-era scandals of the 1980s to the crimes and abuses under George W. Bush this decade.

For instance, more people would learn the true stories of cocaine trafficking by Ronald Reagan's Nicaraguan contras (in Lost History); George H.W. Bush's dark role in U.S. politics (in Secrecy & Privilege); and George W. Bush's brazen theft of Election 2000 (in Neck Deep).

Now, for a limited time, you can get all three books for only $20, plus $5 for shipping ($25 total). Then, you can contact your local library about placing them in the permanent collection. (If you wish, we can send them to the library directly although it's more effective if a local person donates them.)

Beyond getting this honest history to many more people, we will put $5 from each sale into the coffers of so the Web site can keep publishing important articles by Ray McGovern, Coleen Rowley, Peter Dyer, Lisa Pease and many others.

So help us reach our goal of putting this important three-book set into 1,000 libraries.

All you have to do is send a check for $25 to:

The Media Consortium; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201.

And tell us the address for delivering the books.

(Other payment options include sending us your Visa/Mastercard data by mail. Or you can submit your payment as a donation to, but in that case, you must send us an e-mail - to - explaining that you want the payment to go for the 3-for-1 offer and telling us where to ship the books.)

Thanks for your support.
