Snooki Reads Mother Jones

What does the cast of Jersey Shore do when they’re not going to the gym, tanning, and doing laundry? Read Mother Jones, of course:

MTV filmed the skit to promote Power Of 12, its effort to get out the youth vote this November. Jason Rzepka, MTV’s vice-president of public affairs, told me that its producers wanted Snooki to be reading a political magazine, and their choice of Mother Jones “reflects the impact of your brand and reporting.” (It could also reflect the fact that Snooki is soon to be a mother).

Whether Mother Jones actually appeals to Snooki is less clear. Last month she told Newt Gingrich: “I’m trying to be like you,” but then, she might have just been making fun of his efforts to cash in on his celebrity. Whatever Snooki’s political affiliations, we’re happy for the endorsement. Snooki fans can sign up for a subscription here

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
