Old CW: Drudge rules their world.  New CW: Breitbart rules their world.  Jim DeMint gets it: “We don’t need The Washington Post to cover things anymore.  Something can get on a conservative blog, then on Fox News, then it’s everywhere.”


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.
