You’re just enjoying your Sunday evening when BAM: EXTRA! EXTRA! PATRIOTISM DEAD.

Then, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water:

Journalists live for days like this. I can’t help but wonder how The Newsroom would have covered this monumental night.

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.
