Mother Jones Editors Speak to the Progressive Web Community

My original title for this post was “Sometimes People Want Jobs in Journalism, So They Treat Editors Like Newsmakers and Interview Them.” But then I decided not to be a jerk and made it the first line of my post instead.

Last week, Mother Jones editors Clara Jeffery and Monika Bauerlein spoke with CampusProgress about “men, women, and journalism.” More specifically, the lack of female writers and editors at thought-leader magazines, MoJo‘s recent cover story on Hillary Clinton, and how the starving interns and fellows here at Mother Jones really shouldn’t be complaining about their wages. Little is said about the quality or professionalism of Mother Jones‘ bloggers.

All jokes aside, it’s worth a read. Have a look!

Straight to the point: Donations have been concerningly slow for our hugely important First $500,000 fundraising campaign. We urgently need your help, and a lot of help, over the next few weeks 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.
