This is a bummer. The great ‘zine Stay Free! is about to stop publishing. If you’re not familiar with SF!, then you’ve been missing out on a fun, intellectually curious indie mag that walks the fine line between critiquing consumerism and mass media and appreciating pop culture. It came out sporadically, but each issue was packed with smart interviews and articles on advertising, psychology, conspiracy theories, and pranks. It also did some great ad parodies, assuming the culturejamming mantle shrugged off by Adbusters when it decided that a sense of humor can’t break windows at Starbucks. Sadly, the financial woes that have beset the rest of the words-on-dead-trees biz have affected SF! as well, and so it’s going blog-only after its next issue. It’s a shame—I’ll miss having issues show up unpredictably in my mailbox. But you can still read—and buy—back some issues here. The Stay Free! blog is still worth checking out, too. But it just won’t be the same…

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
