Person of the Day: John Bolton


JOHN BOLTON, former UN ambassador, who said on British TV last night, “The fundamental point is whether the civil war that is there is going to continue or are the Iraqis going to live as one country…This is not for the United States to answer.”

Reality, on the march.

Fact:

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.
