News You've Been Waiting For, Mother Jones Takes on Washington

| Mon Jul. 23, 2007 2:11 PM EDT

We've been telling you for a few days that Mother Jones has some big news. Here it is. We're bucking the mainstream news downsizing trend while getting our investigators' noses into places that drive the political elite crazy. Right after Labor Day, non-profit Mother Jones will be the first American news organization in years to open a major bureau in Washington D.C. We're more than doubling our commitment to fearless, independent reporting in the nation's capital.
