Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Grasslier Than Thou

It’s been a cathartic day going after AIG and the bonuses. It’s a political chocolate factory; free righteous indignation about the bonuses (nobody’s mentioning the billions going to banks through AIG that don’t need them). Eliot Spitzer (yes him) wrote interestingly about that on Slate. Chuck Grassley last night called for the bonus boys to commit hara-kiri. To sample the current mood on Capitol Hill we’ve asked four representatives to join us for their take on AIG. Thank you panel.


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.
