This post at Bitch PhD on abortion, along with all the related links, is very much worth reading. Especially her point that different women arrive at a pro-choice position from different premises, a fact that doesn’t often get much attention, it seems.

Also, this post by Astarte at Utopian Hell, on advertising that condones violence, is a good one.

Columbia Journalism Review, two interesting media pieces on Life After Rupert Murdoch and the future of canned news and conservative commentary.

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.
