WATCH: Superbugs and the Factory Farms That Create Them [Cartoon]


Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week’s animation, Saunders heads to the factory farm, where Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) has introduced an amendement in the house that would make it impossible for the FDA to restrict the use of antibiotics in livestock. As always, that’s Saunders performing the voiceover. Sound effects are from freesound.org. —The Editors

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.
