Four Pictures and a Video

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Picture #1: On the Verizon website, the number of “agents” who are eagerly waiting for you to call is…a random number between 1 and 15. The wait time is also a random number.

Picture #2: Congratulations, particle physicists! You have finally isolated the rare glutino and packaged it for the masses. Who says basic science is useless?

Picture #3: Rejection letter to George Orwell for Animal Farm: “What was needed, (someone might argue), was not more communism but more public-spirited pigs.” So I’ve heard.

Picture #4: It could have been worse. They could have supplied him with Viagra.

And a video: I’m not sure Hopper ever noticed what was going on.

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.
