Quote of the Day: Gold Rush

From Peter Epstein, president of gold reseller Merit Financial Services, on why they don’t advertise much on CNN:

Gold resonates more with Fox’s viewers “because it’s the angry white man audience — it’s the conservative audience….They are distrustful of the government, of the regime.”

Gold: The Angry White Man’s Investment!  Because, apparently, angry white men are the natural audience for an industry whose markups tend to be “so egregiously high the only thing you can call them is shysters.”  More at the link.

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.
