Need To Read: September 1, 2009


I’m experimenting with a different style for this morning’s must-reads. Please give feedback.

  • Ahmadinejad Coming To America (WaPo)
  • Top US General in Afghanistan Will Probably Ask For More Troops (WaPo)
  • Cameron Todd Willingham Was Executed. Was He Innocent? (New Yorker Investigation/NYT Editorial/Bob Herbert Op-Ed)
  • Top Health Insurance Lobby Won’t Say What Its CEO’s Co-Pay Is (MoJo)
  • FDIC Head Opposes Super-Regulator (NYT Op-Ed)
  • UN Chief Reaching Out To Dictators (WaPo)
  • Henry Waxman Going After Insurance Companies (FDL)
  • Bruce Bartlett On Why He’s Anti-Republican (David Frum’s New Majority)
  • Cheney: Screw The Law (MoJo)
  • Dukakis For Kennedy’s Senate Seat? (Boston Globe Op-Ed)
  • Advice For Obama From A Reaganite (David Corn/AOL Politics Daily)
  • Virginia GOP’s Gubernatorial Candidate’s Thesis Demonstrates Deep Discomfort With Modern Society (WaPo)

I post goodies like these throughout the day on twitter. You can follow me, of course. David Corn, Mother Jones‘ DC bureau chief, also tweets. So do my colleagues Daniel Schulman and Rachel Morris and our editors-in-chief, Clara Jeffery and Monika Bauerlein. Follow them, too! (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.
