Quote of the Day: Who’s Afraid of a Few Snobs?


From Freddie deBoer:

The anxiety that someone, somewhere is looking down their nose at your cultural consumption is the most exhausting aspect of being a consumer of art criticism today.

The topic here, oddly enough, is the demise of Grantland. Since I never read it, I have no idea if deBoer’s larger point has merit. But you can always click the link and decide for yourself.

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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
