Here are nine headlines currently splashed across the news at the moment I’m writing this:

  • Trump acknowledges he intentionally downplayed coronavirus threat
  • N.I.H. Director Undercuts Trump’s Comments on a Vaccine by Election Day
  • As NFL reopens, Trump resumes attacks on players who demonstrate for racial justice
  • In crackdown on race-related content, Education Department targets internal book clubs, meetings
  • Patients may have seen ‘significant’ delays in medicine deliveries by USPS, Senate report finds
  • Whistleblower Says DHS Leadership Tried to Halt Reports on Russian Interference
  • Mike Pence slated to speak at fundraiser hosted by QAnon supporters
  • Emails show HHS official trying to muzzle Fauci
  • Senate paralyzed over coronavirus relief

November 3rd can’t come soon enough.

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.
