Person of the Day: Molly Ivins

MOLLY IVINS Here’s to the brave, wonderful Molly; happy warrior, caring, courageous, crusading journalist who has devoted a rich life to exposing corruption, hypocrisy, and cruelty in high places, especially these last six dark years in America. She’s now been hospitalized with cancer for the third time. This post and, I’m sure, all of us who have illustrated her work, and have been inspired by it, send her our thoughts and prayers. Nice tribute piece by RJ Eskow.

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.
