From the LA Times this morning:

Some fear GOP is being carried to the extreme

All well and good, but it might be a better story if “some” turned out to be more than a grand total of two people.  And even at that, one of the two is David Frum, who’s been estranged from the loony bin wing of the party for nearly a year now.  By contrast, the article quotes four people defending the crackpots.  “Some” might indeed fear that the GOP is being carried to extreme, but apparently it’s a pretty small movement so far.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners 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 2021 demands.
