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


Sgt. 1st Class Eteru Ane, of Pago Pago, American Samoa, is backlit by the setting sun as he heads toward the last station of the day, an uphill Hummvee push, during Task Force Attack’s (1-227th AV) winter spur ride on December 7, 2011 at Forward Operating Base Sharana, Afghanistan. More than 40 troopers tested their skills to become members of “The Order of the Spur” and earn the right to wear silver cavalry spurs. Photo by the US Army.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy 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 2020 demands.
