Consumer Retorts

Have a problem? Oh yes, you do.

Corporate malfeasance comes in many forms, some of them downright annoying. We want to know what’s bugging you, the conscious consumer. What kinds of pointless, perplexing, or perturbing company policies or products leave you scratching your head? We’re looking for examples of hype, hypocrisy, greenwashing, and just plain bad business. Tell us a specific company or product that deserves to be called out, and if we select it, we’ll try to squeeze a satisfactory answer out of the corporate flacks so you don’t have to. We’ll tell you what we find in an upcoming issue of Mother Jones, plus send you Mother Jones swag.

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.
