How It’s Done


Speaking of right-wing derangement (it was few hours ago, but we were speaking of it), Glenn Greenwald has the latest over at his place. It’s about the “Gitmo 9” smear, but what it’s really about is how this stuff routinely gets mainstreamed via credulous treatment by cable news. It’s the noise machine in a nutshell. But don’t click unless you have a strong stomach.

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.
