Our most important fundraising drive of the year is now underway. After you're done reading, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.

O'Reilly acquitted himself pretty well; no knock-out but Colbert won on points. Audience: Boos.O'Reilly: That's booing, that's Stewart, that's Jon Stewart in that plaid shirt.Colbert: No no. We have a restraining order against Jon Stewart. He's not allowed in the building.O'Reilly: He's jealous. He's jealous of you Colbert.Colbert: The man is a sexual predator… Bill, you have no idea what that's like. Norm at onegoodmove has the video.update: Norm has posted the video of Colbert's appearance on the O'Reilly show (which actually preceeded O'Reilly on Colbert). O'Reilly has post-interview analytical commentary by Bernard Goldberg and Jane Hall, the clueless pomposity of which serves as a splendid example of unintended comedy.

Support progressive media

As a nonprofit, reader-supported publication, In These Times depends on donations from people like you to continue publishing. Our final, end-of-year fundraising drive accounts for nearly half of our total budget. That’s why this fundraising drive is so important.

If you are someone who depends on In These Times to learn what is going on in the movements for social, racial, environmental and economic justice, the outcome of this fundraising drive is important to you as well.

How many readers like you are able to contribute between now and December 31 will determine the number of stories we can report, the resources we can put into each story and how many people our journalism reaches. If we come up short, it will mean making difficult cuts at time when we can least afford to do so.

If it is within your means, please make a tax-deductible donation today, to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.
