Pardon Our Dust: Fixing the Comments System

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.


You said you’ve had it with spam and trolls; believe us, so have we. To (we hope) cut down on both, we’re switching to a new commenting system on Motherjones.com, powered by Disqus. [Read more about Disqus here, or check it out on The Atlantic and Alternet.] Don’t worry, you won’t have to create a new Mother Jones login. You’ll even be able to use your Twitter, Facebook, or OpenID login instead if you prefer.

Please note that we’ll be turning off article and blog comments for the weekend starting at 4pm Pacific on Friday while we get the new system up and running. If all goes well, commenting should work again by Monday morning. Thanks for your patience and please don’t be shy to give us feedback once the new system goes up; we’ll be posting a few times asking for comments and you can also email web-feedback at motherjones.com

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
