Why You Should Support Bluestem Prairie

Posted by Phoenix Woman on July 13, 2012

Sally Jo Sorensen over at Bluestem Prairie is having a fundraiser. She’s definitely worth whatever shekels you can send her way.

She’s broken a number of stories, both of local and national import, over the years. Her most famous recent scoop, done in conjunction with Ken Avidor, has been the news that Bradlee Dean was ordered to pay over $24,000 in order to keep his SLAPP suit against Rachel Maddow and Andy Birkey from being dismissed with prejudice.

Please consider going to Sally Jo’s site and using the paypal button there (checks accepted; email Sally Jo at AT for her snail mail address) or something from her modest wish list (mostly coffee and cat treats, as she says).
