Let’s help the New York Times hire a lefty columnist! In between random invective about my corporate sellout neoliberalist ways, my Twitter feed and email were full of suggestions. You can vote for up to five from the list below. Which of these folks do you like reading even if their politics aren’t always to your liking?

I’d mention who my two or three favorites are from this list, but I don’t want to ruin their chances. Also: about a third of this list is people I’m not familiar with, so don’t take this as any kind of endorsement of anyone’s politics or background.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
