Please Give Us Some of Your Money

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Officially, I think we should all be more focused broadly on deception by politicians, not narrowly on lies. However, as many of you have pointed out, for fundraising purposes Mother Jones is pretty clearly focused on lies. And why not? If you got your facts from Fox News or the GOP, you’d think President Obama was raiding grandma’s Medicare in order to give welfare to illegal immigrants who came to destroy America through same-sex marriage.

Luckily, you don’t have to get your facts from the conservative noise machine. Mother Jones is here to fact-check the politicians, and when we expose lies, our stories are picked up and amplified by mainstream media outlets across the nation. As you know, however, MoJo is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and our journalism is mostly funded by donations. So if you happen to know any billionaires and can persuade them to throw us a million or two during this week’s fundraising drive, that would be great.

But if you’re not on a first-name basis with any billionaires, how about tossing ten or twenty bucks to the Mother Jones Investigative Fund instead? That’s what we’re really after anyway. Or even a C-note if you can swing it. It helps keep Mother Jones going, and that means that it helps keep this blog going too. Here’s how to donate online:

Thanks! Every dollar helps.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
