Iran Nuke Update and Media Imbalance


I want to point out that when the current administration gives non-inflammatory updates on the state of Iran’s nuclear capability, it earns way less media attention than the previous administration’s public fear-mongering. The result is that Americans still nervous about Iran because of Bush, Cheney, et al’s repeated but unfounded warnings don’t have the information they need to know they can breathe easy. This strikes me as problematic. 

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 so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
