Brodner’s Person of the Day: Hillary Clinton and Matt Drudge

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Dalliance of the Day

Hillary Clinton, showing Bill a thing or two, bussed right-wing web-news maestro Matt Drudge with a scoop on her reaction to Obama’s attack. This, combined with her recently restated Iran war whoop, shows you (or she) can never be too right wing these days. And the right loves her back, sort of like people who believe in The Rapture who claim to love Jews. The front-page piece in the Times yesterday ends with this quote from Drudge: “I need Hillary Clinton. You don’t get it. I need to be part of her world. That’s my bank.”

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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
