Tim Pilgrim -- poet & teacher

Koutsky fish 
Welcome to home for Timothy Pilgrim, associate professor of journalism at Western Washington University (Ph.D., Washington, 1989).

Pilgrim normally teaches introduction to mass media, editing and, sometimes, newswriting (check their content at the left).

Find Pilgrim's poetry at the left as well -- or at his new poem home down the road, www.timothypilgrim.org

Below, get information about greed in America and about free press abuses by government -- as well a selected list of links to alternative media, many with non-corporate, non-mainstream viewpoints. Enjoy!

Non-mainstream media
Government lies & propaganda:
fake journalism's assault on democracy

U.S. war efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan have cost about $4 trillion over the past decade. -- the Eisenhower Research Project "Growth for the sake of growth is the philosophy of the cancer cell." -- Edward Abbey "The great thieves punish the little ones." -- Thomas Fuller "The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth
of private power to the point where it becomes stronger
than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism --
ownership of government by an individual, by a group
or any controlling private power." -- Franklin Delano Roosevelt
