The Circular Firing Squad


As long as we’re on the subject of liberals being their own worst enemies — and we were on that subject, weren’t we? — check out Josh Harkinson’s piece on the civil war over Waxman-Markey among enviros.  It’s been brewing for a while, but it’s now starting to go mainstream.  For a look at what they’re fighting over, a handy W-M checklist is here.

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.
