Independent, Kick-Ass Journalism—Now More than Ever

The political divide in Washington is as nasty as I’ve ever seen it. The tea party-pandering Republican Party has brought the nation’s capital to a standstill—and nearly pushed the nation into another financial crisis. With the nation facing a series of challenges—a stalled economy, flat (or falling) incomes for those in the middle or the bottom, a troubled education system, out-of-date infrastructure—there seems little chance the political system can produce policies that address these serious problems. But the tea party types and their conservative corporate backers don’t mind. They’re rooting for gridlock that gums up and discredits the government.

And, as ugly as things are right now, they could get worse. In this coming election year, special interests will be flooding the political system with anonymous contributions to make sure their allies gain even more power in Washington. And what we—those of us who do the kick-ass journalism at Mother Jones and those of you who read it, support it, and pass it on—have to do is expose these naked attempts to hijack the nation’s politics and government.

We need to raise $75,000 to pay for investigative reporters in our DC bureau who will expose these corrupt politicians and their anonymous corporate backers. Will you help us out? Even $5 or $10 will make a big difference. Please donate today.

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.
