Need To Read, August 17, 2009


Some must-reads to start your week:

Government refuses to provide even minimal information about detainees held in Bagram.

The map of failed banks.

Why newspapers are really failing.

The best-paid CEOs in the US.

Annie Leibovitz’s personal financial crisis.

David Corn, Mother Jones‘ DC bureau chief, is on twitter, and so are my colleagues Daniel Schulman, Nick Baumann, and our editor, Clara Jeffery. You can follow me here. (The magazine’s main account is @motherjones.)

 

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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
