Ad Update


In case you’re interested, here’s an update from the LA Times on efforts to turn down the volume on TV commercials.  As near as I can tell, it’s the exact same story we all read six months ago.  Anna Eshoo’s bill is still winding its way slowly through Congress; it’s still wildly popular with ordinary people; it’s still being opposed by Republicans; and the ad industry is still “working to address the problem,” with progress expected any day now.  Just thought you’d like to know.

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.
