Video: Bailout Madness With Air America, MoJo


Always one to talk bailout madness, Mike Papantonio, co-host of Air America’s lively “Ring of Fire” weekly program, invited me back recently (see the first interview here) onto his show. We talked about Mother Jones coverage of the latest debacle surrounding the government’s more than $20 trillion financial rescue—the TARP repayment process and the controversy over the government’s warrant firesales.

Watch the interview below.

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.
