While others in the media “pivot to video” in a quest for advertising revenue, we decided to pivot to video to say thanks—to our readers, for having our backs during another year full of challenges for those of us who care about journalism and democracy.

Thank you for everything you do to make Mother Jones what it is.

And speaking of generosity, we figured we’d stop talking about our December fundraising drive for a moment and highlight some of the other amazing independent newsrooms the MoJo community can support.

If you’d like to find a local nonprofit newsroom close to you, or one that focuses on an issue you care about, head over to NewsMatch.org, where you can search for reader-supported organizations that are part of the Institute for Nonprofit News—or scroll through their “Best of Nonprofit News 2018” to see some of the amazing work these shops have done.

Bonus: Many of these newsrooms have a $25,000 matching gift running this month from NewsMatch. We’ve already used our share of the match (thanks to the amazing generosity of MoJo readers!), but for a lot of these smaller but fierce and focused outlets, even just a few gifts from the MoJo community can go a long way. Please check it out today, because there can never be enough independent, quality journalism.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
