Tim Murphy Is in Hell

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.

Apparently Tim Murphy did something we frown upon—kicked a homeless person? told a lame joke on Slack?—so our editors packed him up and sent him to Iowa to watch political commercials. I guess that’s better than sending him to Wuhan. Maybe?

Anyway, I don’t know why anyone would treat a valued employee this way, but journalism is a tough business these days. Click here if you want to read Tim’s report while thanking God that you didn’t get sent to Iowa.

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.
