Truth and Consequences

Don’t worry, Orioles fans. If lying to Congress didn’t disqualify John Bolton from being Ambassador to the United Nations, what are the odds that it will disqualify Rafael Palmeiro from the Hall of Fame? He may even get an “up or down” vote!

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.
