On Wednesday, Mother Jones‘ Stephanie Mencimer reported that Glenn Beck’s tale of holding George Washington’s first inaugural address, which he recounted at his “Restoring Honor” rally, is—get this—not true. We accompanied the story with a great photoillustration by blogger Mario Piperni. (Piperni gave us permission.) The image, as you can see here, combines Beck and Washington into one character. We love it. But as you can see below, we’re not the only ones:

Conspicously, Beck didn’t address his George Washington fib. Nor did he give Piperni credit for the image. But we wanted to make sure you had the full story. Anyway: glad you like the image, Glenn!

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
