(*Note: This is a ranking of “Jim Carrey movies,” a la feature-length movies in which Jim Carrey appears beginning with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Movies that feature Jim Carrey from before Ace Ventura: Pet Detective are not “Jim Carrey movies.” They are just movies that Jim Carrey happened to appear in.)

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
