It’s not an election year, but it sure feels like one:

Drugmakers, labor unions, both national political parties and the sector currently under the heaviest fire — health insurance companies — are all weighing in with significant ad buys. Nationwide, more than $52 million has been spent this year on health-care reform-related ads, according to the Campaign Media Analysis Group, setting the stage for what may be a record-breaking legislative battle.

Speaking of this, we’d like to track the advertising and campaigning around the health care bill over the August recess.  If you see or hear an especially egregious ad/robocall/flyer/etc. in your local area, can you let us know about it?  Or send us footage, if you have access to it?  We’d like to post as much of this stuff as possible.  The email address to send it to is scoop@motherjones.com.  Thanks!

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
