Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: The Beautiful Atlantic

James Bennet and the brilliant gang at The Atlantic are at last giving us a way forward in media. It’s not about killing print, but understanding the print/online mix and how to turn a profit using both. In this Times piece from Tuesday, we see how the magazine found a new direction: by simply changing its way of thinking.


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.
