It was double duty for MoJo‘s Washington bureau on Monday as both Kate Sheppard and David Corn joined Keith Olbermann on MSNBC’s Countdown. First, Kate dished on the EPA’s new greenhouse gas regulations and incoming chair of the energy and commerce committee Rep. Fred Upton’s (R-Mich.) plans to block them.

Then David Corn joined Keith to discuss Darrell Issa’s plans to investigate the Obama administration.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
