Important Christmas News

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.

Via Media Matters, I see that Fox News has begun its annual attempt to defend America in the War on ChristmasTM:

(Other groups started their fight to defend Christmas earlier this month.) It’s probably hopeless to point this out, but Christians are not an embattled minority in this country and Christmas is in no danger of becoming any less of a holiday. This seems like a good time to repeat my favorite statistic: a higher percentage of America’s population is Christian than Israel’s is Jewish.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
