Coronavirus cash help and free offer, with love

The following are two limited offers. Please note all details.


I know it’s not much, but I’m offering to PayPal $100 cash to at least the first 100 people in need who email me by 7pm ET Sunday April 5 with the following (please, only one per household):

  • EMAIL to [email protected]
  • Write in the subject line: CASH HELP
  • Include your full name and snail mail address
  • Include the PayPal email where you want the money transferred to

I will not be able to individually answer each email. If you are in the first 100 to provide all the information, I will PayPal you as soon as possible, within the next few days.

If you are not in need, please consider continuing to help those who are.


If you are not in need and believe that now, more than ever, it’s important to understand today’s media landscape, please consider: 

For the first 100 people who pre-order any version of my new book “Slanted: How the news media taught us to love censorship and hate journalism,” by noon ET Tuesday, April 7, I’ll buy you, or someone you care about, a Kindle audiobook of my previous New York Time bestsellers: “Stonewalled” or “The Smear,” if you do the following:

  • EMAIL to [email protected]
  • Write in subject line: SLANTED OFFER
  • Forward a copy of your “Slanted” book preorder confirmation
  • Include your full name
  • Choose “Stonewalled” or “The Smear”
  • Provide email address of where you want Kindle gift book delivered

As always, a portion of the proceeds from sales of my book, “Slanted,” will be donated to good-journalism-related causes.

I will not be able to individually answer each email. If you are in the first 100 to provide all the information, I will gift the book of your choice as soon as possible, hopefully within a week.

*Disclaimers: It isn’t possible at this time for me to send through methods other than PayPal and Kindle. Nothing here should be construed as a promise; I will do my best to fulfill. All cash or items are provided solely at my discretion. Occasionally, people forget to include required information, or the email bounces back, and I am not able to troubleshoot.

Order “Slanted: How the News Media Taught Us to Love Censorship and Hate Journalism” by Sharyl Attkisson today at Harper Collins, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books a Million, IndieBound, Bookshop!

    SHARYL, this will help the country immediately.

    President Trump could have the federal government just cover all overdrafts of small businesses with that $2.2 trillion that Congress already passed. This way no business would have to fire, furlough, or get rid of a single employee. They could still pay their employees the full wages. Of course the employee would still be at home sheltering in place, but receiving his full wages. We would still have 100% workforce, and 3.5% unemployment. the Dow wouldn’t have dropped as much.

    This action would also have eliminated the need to send everyone that $1200 stimulus check.

    This could go on for months if need be, without collapsing our economy.

    Do you understand This? I’m not sure how well I’m explaining. Please let me know.

  3. What a wonderful gesture, Sharyl. We will not be requesting help… so many people in need and this is absolutely lovely… we have prepared for such an event, but are doing our best to stay out of the pool and not get infected, and by definition, infect others. We also have two family members living with us who are medically fragile, so cannot even imagine putting them at risk, or anyone else.
    God Bless you and your family, and please keep us the Lord’s work.


  4. A lovely offer for those who need it.
    I’ve just rec’d The Smear. Looking forward to it and the others!!
    You are special and have a truly good heart.
    journalism is sorely needed these days and Sharyl is of the few who practice honest journalism!!

    Sharyl, thank you for being you, a true newsroom anchor.
    Please make Audible versions of your books.
    Best regards…

  6. That was a lovely thing to do for people, Sharyl. You have a kind heart. May God bless every dollar and each of those who receive it, as well as the giver. :-)

  7. Pre-ordered! Thanks for the offer on the audiobook but I will pass… I would have to then instruct – and support – whomever i give it to! :)

    I will pass along the book when I am done… but the anticipation for November to come!


  8. Good for you! I did this yesterday at a local pizza restaurant that is trying to survive I left cash and said please feed someone that is hungry! It’s the economy stupid:) reset in action.

  9. Praise the LORD, Jesus Christ! I had to come back and also give you a thanking. You have single handedly blessed my family beyond measure. Not only because of the $100 (although for us it’s substantial because I have been out of work for years- I live near the border of Mexico in South Texas and don’t speak Spanish. I’m literally unable to even get minimum wage work!), but because your generosity has given me a new hope in the short term.

    On November 4th, I was in an accident with my 2 daughters on the way to drop them off at their elementary school. I had a concussion, but thanks to the mercy of GOD and the LORD’s protection they were uninjured. However, we’ve been without a vehicle since. My shoes have worn thru their soles because of walking to get groceries and supplies each day or so prior to the shutdown.

    I had been refurbishing MacBooks in order to get by. I would order them online and sell locally because I had virtually no savings when I got in that wreck. With the medical shutdown I’ve been unable to source or sell because my wife is worried I may get exposed. The small amount I had been able to realise in profits was almost totally spent when I saw your post.

    If there is anything I could do to repay your kindness other than giving you some internet traffic- by all means let me know! If you have any remote work you could use a hand with, consider your gift a prepayment on my time. You have all my contact details and this is my real name so it should be easy to find me.

    I sincerely want to thank you again and may GOD bless you and keep you safe.

  10. Sharyl…My respect for you grows for you with your generosity. I was not in need, and already have and read your first book, and pre-ordered Slanted, as your journalistic integrity IMO has never been in question.

    We who have followed you for many years now, are here for you should YOU need anything, and have your back, without question.

    God speed.

    Thank you for your work.
