Independent, Kick-Ass Journalism—Now More than Ever

The political divide in Washington is as nasty as I’ve ever seen it. The tea party-pandering Republican Party has brought the nation’s capital to a standstill—and nearly pushed the nation into another financial crisis. With the nation facing a series of challenges—a stalled economy, flat (or falling) incomes for those in the middle or the bottom, a troubled education system, out-of-date infrastructure—there seems little chance the political system can produce policies that address these serious problems. But the tea party types and their conservative corporate backers don’t mind. They’re rooting for gridlock that gums up and discredits the government.

And, as ugly as things are right now, they could get worse. In this coming election year, special interests will be flooding the political system with anonymous contributions to make sure their allies gain even more power in Washington. And what we—those of us who do the kick-ass journalism at Mother Jones and those of you who read it, support it, and pass it on—have to do is expose these naked attempts to hijack the nation’s politics and government.

We need to raise $75,000 to pay for investigative reporters in our DC bureau who will expose these corrupt politicians and their anonymous corporate backers. Will you help us out? Even $5 or $10 will make a big difference. Please donate today.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
