MoJo Mix: 3 August 2009


I can’t decide whether the ongoing Birther resurgance is a) the usual wingnuts doing their usual wingnut thing, or b) a brilliant GOP tactical ploy to divert attention from health care reform. You? While you mull it over, 3 more questions for your Monday mix:

1) Will health care reform actually happen?

2) Carbon footprint, sure. But what’s your water footprint?

3) Why is HBO’s 40-year-old co-creator of Hung claiming there are no talented and attractive actresses over 35?

Laura McClure hosts podcasts, writes the MoJo Mix, and is the new media editor at Mother Jones. Read her investigative feature on lifehacking gurus in the latest issue of Mother Jones.

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.
