Goodbye, MoJo-land!

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Folks, sad news. Today marks my last day at Mother Jones. I’ll be leaving the magazine after four happy years to attend the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. It has been an absolute privilege to write for you in this space for the last two and a half years. Even now, I’m still a bit shocked that I was paid to express my thoughts and opinions on the day’s headlines, something I had been doing loudly and proudly without pay for years. It’s been a blast.

The editors here at the magazine have my eternal gratitude for the opportunities they bestowed upon me. They work extremely hard to put together a serious, compelling, and thought-provoking product (which, by the way, they sell at a very affordable price), and still made time to advise and nurture me. I hope you’ll find space in your increasingly cluttered media tableau for a print subscription to the magazine. I’ll have one. Maybe we can meet up in the comments section online.

I could wax on for a long time, but instead, I’ll do this. If anyone out there in the wide world of MoJo is interested in my unvarnished thoughts on blogs, the media, and their ability to cover policy and politics, just ask for them in the comments section of this post over the next couple days. If we get a good conversation going, you can expect a fair amount of self-reflection and even some self-criticism from me.

Thanks for indulging me, everyone. Take care.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
