We’ll keep this short. Jon “Getting Excited!!!” Stewart, an American comedian, devotee of sandwiches, critic of cats, dabbler in democracy, fanboy of Mitch McConnell, publicist of Tucker Carlson, and haver of plans, is back. His new show, The Problem With Jon Stewart, premieres tomorrow on Apple TV+, free for a limited time, after six years hugging the sidelines in cowering fear of his own shadow as the world collapsed. No pressure. Welcome back.

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.
