Join MoJo’s Public Insight Network

Everyone has a story. We want to hear yours.

Commenting on a Mother Jones article is a good way to share what you think.

To share what you know, become a news source for our reporters through the Public Insight Network at Mother Jones.

Whether it’s what made your favorite teacher great or what’s keeping you awake at night, you have insights that can inform media coverage. When you offer your experience and observations to journalists in the Public Insight Network, you help us test hunches, identify emerging trends, and cover under-the-radar stories.

As a source for the Public Insight Network, you can expect:

  • A quick, easy, and confidential sign up process. Just click here.
  • About one email a month. We’ll regularly send out short questionnaires looking for background information, quotes, and sources for stories tied to specific issues or events. If you don’t have personal experience or insights to share, please pass on the request to friends or colleagues who do.
  • An occasional follow-up call or email. Our editors and reporters may be in touch to get more information on a lead you provide.
  • The satisfaction of having an impact on news coverage across the country. You’ll not only inform Mother Jones reporters and editors, but other newsrooms in the Public Insight Network, as well. [Click here for a list of news organizations participating in the Public Insight Network.]

Founded in 2003 by American Public Media, the Public Insight Network has nearly 100,000 sources around the country. Every day, Public Insight Network sources inform stories for leading news outlets, including Marketplace, ProPublica, the Miami Herald, the Center for Investigative Reporting, and Minnesota Public Radio.
