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.


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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
