From the authors who brought you Weapons of Mass Deception, John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton, it’s…The Best War Ever. I have it on good authority that the book…

  • offers a compelling study to date of the propaganda campaign that led us to war
  • gives necessary context and background on the administration’s use of leaked information and ad hominem attacks to discredit their critics
  • is the first to compile and compare various accountings of Iraqi and U.S. casualties as a result of this conflict
  • offers a preview of the likely next round of propaganda aimed at rationalizing the failures to bring stability and democracy to Iraq

Check out the video project timed to the book launch.

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.
