“We Have Made Remarkable Progress” – GWB Video Smackdown

Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.


Viral videos have a power that partisan media lacks. If a video succinctly makes a point about Bush’s record in Iraq, thousands or even millions of people, regardless of party affiliation, may decide to spend a minute and a half to check it out. All it takes is a click of the mouse.

An excellent article in a magazine, however, requires finding a copy and reading for half an hour. Too often, the people willing to make that investment already agree with the article’s point.

You tell me. What catches your attention — the video below (spotted on TAPPED) or this article?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners 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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
