Brodner’s Person of the Day: Hard Truth of the Day

Hard Truth of the Day

Apparently some Turks’ need to deny the Armenian genocide is just as great as our need to deny the genocide of American Indians. Seventy percent of U.S. air cargo and 30 percent of fuel headed for Iraq passes through Turkey. Telling the truth would make it harder to make war.


What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
