Brodner’s Person of the Day: Michael Vick


Michael Vick, Atlanta Falcons quarterback, indicted yesterday for running illegal dogfights. Jon Stewart’s comments last night cried out for an illustration. “He calls it a sport. I’d like to cover him in liver and let the dogs see if he’s as fast and elusive as they say he is. My guess is no.”

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.
