Beck Watch: Fearless MoJo Readers

MoJo reader Steve G. exhibited some smart, fearless activism (read the comment) yesterday when he called the companies that still advertise on Glenn Beck’s show. Three hours later, the consumer services specialist at Eggland’s Best responded with this message: “Pending further review Eggland’s Best has suspended TV advertising on the Glen Beck Show.”

Sure enough, Eggland’s Best is absent from today’s list of Beck holdouts

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.
