Mother Jones Begs for a Quick $50K

Here’s an enticing morning email: Mother Jones reporters are self-professed “BS-busters” and they need to raise $50,000 by next week in order to continue to fact check the evil ways of the right wing media.

An excerpt of an urgent morning pitch from Publisher Steve Katz:

The right wing has turned up the lies to try to win swing voters.

…The Republicans’ strategy was summed up by a pollster for Romney, who said “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.”

Thank goodness Mother Jones is here to fact-check the right-wing lie machine. When we expose lies, our stories—a.k.a. the facts—are picked up and amplified by media outlets across the nation.

But we need your help to turbocharge our BS-busting reporting through Election Day. Mother Jones is a nonprofit, and our journalism is mostly funded by donations. If you want to help fight the lies, please give 5 or 10 bucks to the Mother Jones Investigative Fund.
