Revitalized Public Financing


REVITALIZED PUBLIC FINANCING… I have a post on that subject up now on what Kevin calls the mother blog (aka MoJo Blog). Fred Wertheimer, president of good government group Democracy 21, takes to the Washington Post today to sketch out what a functioning public financing system looks like in the next decade. I point out the highlights.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
