Hello, Everyone.

I’ll be filling in for Kevin while he’s away for a couple of days. Normally, you can find me over on Mother Jones‘s main news blog, writing about politics, immigration, and the occasional juicy conspiracy theory. Before coming to MoJo, I was at The New Republic, where I spent much time covering health care reform (which may creep onto the blog this week as well). Sadly, I have no cats. But I’m looking forward to the back-and-forth with everyone here.


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.
