Winner of the laziness-disguised-as-savvy-gen-x-ironic-marketing award.

Every so often an ad comes along that tries so hard to be hip, and fails so badly, that you have to wonder who the real slackers are . . .

From the December 10th, San Fransisco Bay Guardian (the venerable alternative weekly in S.F.):


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.
