William Rivers Pitt of Truthout: Every single president at some point probably joked about pardoning themselves. Trump is the first president to really mean it.
As part of its commitment to providing independent information and resources to its readers, Truthout chooses a "Progressive Pick" every week: an independent book or DVD that we find thought-provoking and insightful. Each week, we provide articles, excerpts and interviews about the Progressive Pick, and also offer you a chance to receive the book or DVD with a donation to Truthout.

THE MEDIA SHOULDN'T SELL OUT
Truthout is accountable only to our readers: Not corporations, not politicians, not any political party.
