A Hundred and Fifty Reasons to Support Salem-News.comTim King Salem-News.com
Numerous reasons to consider our mission.
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - It is a long list, and really doesn't cover everything. If I repeated words or thoughts I will correct them. The reasons that justify our existence, it seems, far outnumber what I have listed here.
Our continued operation and existence as a news agency is vital, we are in need of funding and those inclined to help are appreciated to no end. The road is bumpy and advertising support is minimal, our readers help keep the information moving.
We need to keep push forward. Thank you for your support.

Tim's years as a Human Rights reporter have taken on many dimensions; he has rallied for a long list of cultures and populations and continues to every day, with a strong and direct concentration on the 2009 Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians in Sri Lanka. As a result of his long list of reports exposing war crimes against Tamil people, Tim was invited to be the keynote speaker at the FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) Conference in Baltimore, in July 2012. This is the largest annual gathering of North American Tamils; Tim addressed more than 3000 people and was presented with a traditional Sri Lanka ‘blessed garland’ and a shawl as per the tradition and custom of Tamil Nadu

Serving readers with news from all over the globe, Tim's life is literally encircled by the endless news flow published by Salem-News.com, where more than 100 writers contribute stories from 23+ countries and regions.
Tim specializes in writing about political and military developments worldwide; and maintains that the label 'terrorist' is ill placed in many cases; specifically with the LTTE Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, where it was used as an excuse to slaughter people by the tens of thousands; and in Gaza, where a trapped population lives at the mercy of Israel's destructive military war crime grinder. At the center of all of this, Tim pays extremely close attention to the safety and welfare of journalists worldwide.
