Introducing Two New Blogs: The Blue Marble and The Riff

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


Though still a bit beta, please check out our two new blogs. The Blue Marble is our blog on the Environment and Health (and related policy) while The Riff is our culture blog: basically the space where we can rant about books, music, movies, TV, celebrities, eating, gaming, and whatever other leisure activities come to mind. MoJo staff will contribute to both new blogs, but we’re also fortunate to have MoJo contributing writer and science geek extraordinaire Julia Whitty anchor Blue Marble. And over at The Riff, DJ Party Ben (aka Ben Gill), king of the mashups, will provide us with occasional mashups, music reviews, and rants on whatever he damn well pleases.

So we expect some tasty mashups from Ben in a day or so*. Meanwhile, if you want to learn why we chose the name Blue Marble, read this.

*Update: Party Ben has just posted his first 2007 Mother Jones Mashup: Faithless vs. George W. Bush’s SOTU. Go take a listen at The Riff.

MOTHER JONES NEEDS YOUR HELP

We have about a $170,000 funding gap and less than a week to go in our hugely important First $500,000 fundraising campaign that ends Saturday. We urgently need your help, and a lot of help, so we can pay for the one-of-a-kind journalism you get from us.

Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” where we lay out this wild moment and how we can keep charging hard for you. And please help if you can: $5, $50, or $500—every gift from every person truly matters right now.
