“The GOP is eating itself alive.”

Mitt Romney, who has recently come out swinging against Donald Trump, is scheduled to give a big speech in Michigan this morning in which he will condemn the real estate mogul and aim to halt the momentum of his campaign. Trump, predictably, has been having a field day with this news. 

The response to Romney’s upcoming speech on Twitter displays the depth of the Republican freak-out over Trump’s march to the nomination.


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
