This Can't Be Happening! was founded in 2004 by Dave Lindorff to afflict the powerful. Dave realized that it would take more than one journalist to cause any significant degree of affliction. He approached three long-time friends, political comrades and colleagues -- John Grant, Linn Washington and Charles M. Young -- and asked if they would be interested in joining him to found a news collective, thus multiplying the site's afflictive power by 300%. Later, the four were joined by Lori Spencer of Austin, Texas, a state where raising hell is a contact sport. A number of writers have contributed on an irregular basis to the publication, including James Ridgeway, Jess Guh, Ron Ridenour, Ben Pleasants, Tom Thompson, Marilyn Wargo, Lisa Bergson and others. Recently, Vermont poet Gary Lindorff was made poet-in-residence. ThisCantBeHappening! was awarded a coveted Project Censored Award, and as one of the 25 top winners of that honor in 201. In February of 2013, TCBH was joined by a fifth member, Alfredo Lopez, bringing us not only someone with a long storied history of activism and progressive journalism, but an understanding of technology and communication issues.
