Robert Novak’s Heaven


Robert Novak has died at the age of 78, after battling brain cancer for the past year. There are plenty of remembrances of the legendary conservative columnist popping up (see here, here, and here), but Think Progress has unearthed a priceless quote from Novak discussing his vision of the hereafter in 2007: “I’m going to a place where there are no blogs.”

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.
