I & I Editorial Board

The Issues and Insights Editorial Board has decades of experience in journalism, commentary and public policy.


  • I&I is an excellent site which I read every day. However, I have noticed that Paypal is an option when asked to donate to a source which I support. Paypal is another censoring agent like Facebook and I CANNOT support a source which uses it.

    • Thank you for the feedback. We couldn’t agree more about Paypal. As it happens, we are signing up with Align Pay and as soon as we get through their approval process, we will make the switch.
