Hey, it’s your friendly D.C. bureau Legal Affairs reporter, reporting live from inside the Sotomayor confirmation hearings. We’ve teamed up with TheUptake.org to bring you live video of the hearing (plus Twitter updates from Stephanie and David Corn in the crawl). Also check out the live blog below the video. If you missed any of the first three days, check out the wrap-ups: Pride and Prejudice (Monday), Where Did Sotomayor’s Empathy Go? (Tuesday), and Sotomayor Slips Up (Wednesday). Plus, video highlights from the week so far: Sonia knows nunchucks, Al Franken’s flop, ‘Splainin to do, and Al Franken’s Perry Mason joke.

 

 

 

 

GREAT JOURNALISM, SLOW FUNDRAISING

Our team has been on fire lately—publishing sweeping, one-of-a-kind investigations, ambitious, groundbreaking projects, and even releasing “the holy shit documentary of the year.” And that’s on top of protecting free and fair elections and standing up to bullies and BS when others in the media don’t.

Yet, we just came up pretty short on our first big fundraising campaign since Mother Jones and the Center for Investigative Reporting joined forces.

So, two things:

1) If you value the journalism we do but haven’t pitched in over the last few months, please consider doing so now—we urgently need a lot of help to make up for lost ground.

2) If you’re not ready to donate but you’re interested enough in our work to be reading this, please consider signing up for our free Mother Jones Daily newsletter to get to know us and our reporting better. Maybe once you do, you’ll see it’s something worth supporting.
