Mother Jones Editors Speak to the Progressive Web Community

My original title for this post was “Sometimes People Want Jobs in Journalism, So They Treat Editors Like Newsmakers and Interview Them.” But then I decided not to be a jerk and made it the first line of my post instead.

Last week, Mother Jones editors Clara Jeffery and Monika Bauerlein spoke with CampusProgress about “men, women, and journalism.” More specifically, the lack of female writers and editors at thought-leader magazines, MoJo‘s recent cover story on Hillary Clinton, and how the starving interns and fellows here at Mother Jones really shouldn’t be complaining about their wages. Little is said about the quality or professionalism of Mother Jones‘ bloggers.

All jokes aside, it’s worth a read. Have a look!

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
