Our Writers Are Even More Amazing Than We Thought: Nomi Prins’ Challenge to Readers


nomi_pic.jpgWhen we asked
readers to help save our D.C. investigative crew after some
major funders pulled out, one of our freelancers, Nomi Prins–a former
Goldman Sachs managing director turned ace finance reporter–offered to put up the $1,000 fee for her most recent story
as a challenge grant. Yes, just like on public radio: We won’t hold
the blog hostage for 20 minutes every hour to bludgeon you into
giving, but we sure don’t want to leave this money on the table.
Can you help? It’s incredibly easy, just follow this link. If you
give $45 or more, we throw in a subscription to the magazine. Please help Nomi help us out. And then go read
her story on the financial crisis. It will make you weep.

UPDATE: Now you can give via PayPal! Thanks to those of you who have already given, it means a ton. We’ll let you know whether we make the match.

OUR NEW CORRUPTION PROJECT

The more we thought about how MoJo's journalism can have the most impact heading into the 2020 election, the more we realized that so many of today's stories come down to corruption: democracy and the rule of law being undermined by the wealthy and powerful for their own gain.

So we're launching a new Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption. We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We'll publish what we find as a major series in the summer of 2020, including a special issue of our magazine, a dedicated online portal, and video and podcast series so it doesn't get lost in the daily deluge of breaking news.

It's unlike anything we've done before and we've got seed funding to get started, but we're asking readers to help crowdfund this new beat with an additional $500,000 so we can go even bigger. You can read why we're taking this approach and what we want to accomplish in "Corruption Isn't Just Another Scandal. It's the Rot Beneath All of Them," and if you like how it sounds, please help fund it with a tax-deductible donation today.
