FIGHTING DISINFORMATION

As President Trump and his acolytes ramp up their efforts to distort the truth and discredit the Mueller investigation, you can see how urgent our new priority to build a team focused on exposing disinformation will be.

If you're fed up with the lies coming from Washington and proliferating on social media, help us push back with a tax-deductible donation today.

We still need to raise about $90,000 by June 30 so we can bring on a full-time reporter and a data scientist to dig deep on disinformation—who's behind it, how it spreads, and how we can counter it—before this fall's midterms. Please don't sit this one out. Join us and your fellow MoJo readers today.
