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


Jeez, can’t believe it’s the middle of June already. Yikes. Well, here’s the list of stories from yesterday’s Riff, Kevin Drum, and MoJo blogs that touch on Blue Marble subjects: 

Honesty FAIL: Healthcare CEOs tell the House just what slimy stuff they’re made of.

Ovation deflation: Obama gets booed by doctors.

What Not to Bear: Some say the gay pride flag needs a makeover. Calling Stacy and Clinton…

Protest bonus round: A few sad people still offended by Letterman’s joke, reject nth apology.

Palin’s instincts: Kevin Drum admires Palin’s political opportunism.

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.
