Brodner’s Person of the Day: Parenti, Heller, Wallis

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


This Wednesday at the Society of Illustrators, 7 p.m., a panel on art and press censorship in wartime. The Media: The First Casualty in Iraq. $10, free to students with ID. It will also be broadcast live at societyillustrators.org. Not that talking about this syndrome will stop its recurrence. But understanding it may help us better survive the next assault. Hope to see y’all.

Christian Parenti is an American investigative journalist and scholar. His most recent book, The Freedom: Shadows and Hallucinations in Occupied Iraq (2004), is an account of the U.S. occupation in Iraq. Parenti has also reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Venezuela, and Bolivia.

Steven Heller, designer, author, and coauthor of many works on the history of illustration, design, and ways they intersect with the world at large. His output numbers some 80 titles plus many articles in periodicals on design. Art here by Edel.

David Wallis contributes to the New York Times Magazine and the Washington Post. He is the editor of Killed Cartoons: Casualties From the War on Free Expression (W.W. Norton).

P.S.: ONE YEAR FROM TODAY IS D.C. SANIFLUSH DAY. DON’T FORGET THOSE RUBBER GLOVES!

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
