When I set out to write this article, I wanted to talk big about how risk, particularly financial risk, is often one ingredient that is necessary for a big payoff. If Jason and I weren’t willing to take risks early on, which included taking out loans, putting money on credit cards, and often putting our personal futures on the line, we never would have been able to continue to publish, as Jason says, past issue four. Our ability and willingness to take risks allowed Clamor to survive for as long as it did.
How is that democratic? People with a lot of money (both private donors and foundations) shape the way that activism happens by choosing whom to give money to. I have heard the argument that it’s OK as long as the people spending the money are benevolent and have the public’s best interests at heart, but it remains undemocratic and elevates the opinions and desires of a few individuals over all others.

38 Becoming the Media: A Critical History of Clamor Magazine As 2006 progressed, Clamor’s finances had become such a fragile, delicate balance, it seemed the moment I/we looked away, something fell apart. We were constantly fundraising and unable to do the things we enjoyed with the magazine. A lot was falling through the cracks, like evaluating our editorial process. Jason and I came to an agreement that Clamor’s best chance for a future was to sell (or rather, give), the magazine to a new organization that could start anew without all of the debt and baggage we had accumulated.
