“Many of them lie in print,” says New York Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal, speaking to the Guardian about U2 frontman Bono joining the Times’ op-ed page.

Hey, Andrew? Isn’t it your job to make sure the columnists you publish don’t “lie in print”? Or do you just believe that the facts have a liberal bias and allowing conservative columnists to lie is your misguided attempt at “balance”?

In not-unrelated news, Bill Kristol will be on the Daily Show Thursday night.

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.
