Hmmm:

I know my position on Fauci is an unpopular one, but he needs to knock this off. Whenever he waffles and equivocates like this he lends Trump credibility for everything he says—and Trump’s blatherings are heard by ten times more people than Fauci’s next-day corrections. On a net basis, Fauci is doing more harm than good unless he stands up to Trump more forthrightly and consistently.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
