Brodner’s Person of the Day: Jon Corzine

New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine who this week put an end to the death penalty in his state. Is this an isolated case or part of a growing national understanding that you can’t have a death penalty within a criminal justice system that regularly convicts the innocent?


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
