I am most grateful for your penetrating analysis of the domestic issues that would otherwise grow even more rampant and toxic without the light you shine on them. Thanks and best wishes for a wonderful holiday, and a peaceful new year.

Popular Information is essential reading. This is what journalism is SUPPOSED to be! Exposing lies, corruption, and hypocrisy rather than the both-sidsing that corporate media is addicted to and aiding the collapse of democracy in America.

Thank-you so much for what you do. Just a little outfit, but you do so much to expose what the far right is doing across the USA. So much of it would otherwise go unnoticed, because so much of the focus is normally on the national scene.

Actually these more local developments you cover are just as important, and build up a comprehensive - and frightening - picture of how the far right and obscurantist canker in our midst works to undermine decency. I look at the USA from abroad, not least because your pernicious Koch-funded and religious right-inspired ideologues are trying to export their activities to Europe. It's important, therefore, for us to know and understand our common enemy, and from our side of the Atlantic it's much harder to follow what's happening right across the States.

On another note entirely - congratulations also for the quality of your journalism - well written, cogently argued, eminently literate. Perhaps some of those who want to shut down literature they haven't even read might learn something from the quality of your writing, even if they remain blind to the morality of your - our - cause.

Yeah, invaluable investigative journalism done by only three people, making chicken-little me wonder how much more of this Jim Crow police-state reactionary stuff goes on yet undetected. Please keep up the good work.

When a kid in high school, our English teacher introduced us to the "muckrakers".

Judd is "today's" muckraker, EXTREME, ON STEROIDS!

THANK YOU JUDD FOR ALL YOU DO!

Thank you for your excellent work exposing injustice and bringing about shifts, not only in perception of truth but in actions!

Judd, you and your team have done an incredible job of righting the sloppiness and perfidy of the mainstream press. I wish you all a safe holiday season and continued success in the future. You are my chief go-to!

Exceptional reporting represents an EXCEPTIONAL resource and value, especially in today's "actual news" bereft media landscape.

Who needs made-up drama and obvious hyperbole?

Give me my P.I!

Judd- thanks for all the non partisan reporting & the facts. That’s why I subscribe- I want the “ true Hollywood story” not opinions; pundits’ views or panel debates- ie: is a traitor a ‘real’ traitor? Is a coup a ‘real’ coup? You reporting is refreshing. NO MALARKEY!

Happy holidays & TY.

Every one of these is important, Judd, but I think the Mika Westwolf story is the most important one. She was just a throw away person until you looked into it more deeply, and now, a sense of justice has been served. It is so easy to forget the Mika's of this world, and there are so many of them. Thank you for taking the time to look into her life and the story of her death. Most of us would just say something like, "How very tragic," and then move on. Thanks for not moving on.
