[Story Ticker] the day’s date in this format: August 04 update

Hello again from GFM,

Up on our stories pages, we’ve pitched a story idea suggested to us by a GFM user. He’s concerned and intrigued by the American nationalist militias whom are disseminating via the net, a minority and extremely contentious view of the world, but one that increasingly seems to be striking a chord with citizens feeling disenfranchised by the current state of things.

Check out the story pitch here.

Please remember we want to hear from YOU. So suggest the ideas you want a correspondent to discover more about and leave us your opinions on pitches listed here today. What are you waiting for?

Give us Your Feedback: Corporate funding of religious right wing in US



Welcome back bloggers!

We recently received astory idea from a Global for me reader, about the use of right wing religious-political groups to lobby for corporations.

Does this story arouse your suspicions? Here was the proposal from our reader:

Allegedly, corporations are using right wing religious-political groups as fronts to fight the introduction of regulations that will hinder their ability to profit from practices that are detrimental to the interests of the majority of society. An alleged example,Cornwall Alliance supposedly uses religion to fight the overwhelming scienctific evidence of global warming, which protects banks, real estate developers, etc. who are profiting from cutting down rainforests to build $1M energy pig “tar paper shacks” on US farmland.

Do you want aGlobal for Me journalist to investigate this story? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

Thanks for your support,
