Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
Mother Jones is proud to announce a fundraising event featuring MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, the new star of cable news. Maddow's hipster vibe, wicked smarts, and genuine good cheer have made her show an instant hit.
Existing in the space between PBS's NewsHour
and Jon Stewart's Daily Show
, Maddow's program privileges reporters and actual experts over pundits, favors real information over blather, and comes with healthy sides of sass and sarcasm.
Maddow will join Mother Jones
editors Clara Jeffery and Monika Bauerlein for a conversation on media in the Obama years. Proceeds from the event will benefit nonprofit Mother Jones
, a leader in investigative reporting for more than 30 years.
All attendees will receive a complimentary one-year subscription to Mother Jones
We look forward to seeing you there!
