I Support Acronym TV Because ... Play

Support Acronym TV here http://www.patreon.com/AcronymTV
Acronym TV produces a weekly 30-minute weekend show calledThe Resistance Report. This effort takes a small crew, and this crew is paid.

Acronym TV also produces a daily short form (Mon-Thur) independent political commentary/ analysis show. The content is opinionated, sometimes aggressive, and often funny, aiming to shine a seriously unserious, reverentially irreverent light on issues that are often ignored by the corporate media.

Every dollar you pledge for monthly support enables me to stay independent. I am truly humbled by and grateful to the supporters of the show - I literally could not produce the show without your support.

Best,
Dennis Trainor, Jr.
