News and opinion website intended to be “a progressive political organizing tool”
Reflects spectrum of views from liberal to Marxist-socialist
CommonDreams.org is a popular website founded in 1996 by radical activist Craig Brown "to develop use of the Internet as a progressive political organizing tool." It not only banners the day's hottest news and commentary selected by Editor Brown but also provides a large number of hyperlinks to other leftist and liberal columnists, periodicals, radio outlets, news services, and websites.
CommonDreams.org's name was inspired by a co-founder and former President of the Students for a Democratic Society, Todd Gitlin, whose book The Twilight of Common Dreams: Why America Is Wracked by Culture Wars was published in 1995, only months before Brown launched his website.
CommonDreams.org is closely tied to two other entities -- NewsCenter, launched by Brown in May 1997, and the Progressive NewsWire, which publishes de facto press releases by leftist groups to promote their own rallies, protests and other activities.
