A Wee Question


Can someone please explain to me why a supposedly sophisticated magazine like the Economist continues to insist on the juvenile practice of refusing to byline blog posts?  I know, I know, voice of God blah blah blah.  But seriously.  Isn’t it time to grow up and enter the 21st century?  After all, the whole point of the blog format is to highlight personal voices.  I know I’d link to them more often if I knew who I was conversing with.

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.
