Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


What, you thought this post was about the agenda for the debate itself? Nah. It’s on Fox News at 9 pm Eastern and that’s all you need to know.

No, this is about the agenda here. Like the blogging dinosaur I am, I’ll be liveblogging the Republican debate tonight. I know the kids all use the Twitter thingie for this kind of stuff, but if, like me, you’re just too old to keep up with 100 mph Twitter snark, come on over here and refresh your browser every few minutes. It’s the retro way of enjoying the debate!

You can even participate your very own self in comments. However, unlike Twitter, no one will see your pearls except for other commenters. You may decide for yourself if that’s an upside or a downside.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
