Fight Back Against Corporate Control of Politics

| Fri Sep. 23, 2011 6:00 AM EDT

A few weeks ago marked my third anniversary with Mother Jones. That's 36 months of fact-based liberal wonkery, 156 weeks of Friday catblogging, and, oh, something like 8,000 blog posts or so.

And, of course, 18 issues of the magazine itself. During that time we've broken stories about the Republican plan to redefine rape, the real long-term damage done by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the nighttime raid that killed a sleeping seven-year-old in Detroit, and much more. If you missed any of these stories, you missed some of the best reporting being done in America today.

But all this reporting is expensive, and this week we're trying to raise $75,000 to keep it humming along—and to keep my blog online and free for everyone at the same time. So if you enjoy what I do every day, please show it by donating a few dollars to keep the entire MoJo operation going. Even $5 or $10 makes a difference, and $50 or $100 makes an even bigger difference. Plus, your donation is tax deductible. So please take a minute right now to give via credit card or PayPal.

Thanks to the Citizens United case, corporations and the rich have more influence over the political system than ever. Someone has to fight back, and that's something that I and the rest of the MoJo crew do every day. So please—help us out today.
