Smart, Fearless Journalism

Crime and Justice

Monika Bauerlein, CEO
Dear reader,
This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I’ve been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In “News Is Just Like Waste Management,” I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you’re able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.

In “News Is Just Like Waste Management,” Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein explains how the coronavirus crisis is impacting our journalism and why we need to raise $400,000 to help cover all of the reporting we plan to do. If you’re able to, please support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism today.

Every morning I open the door to the backyard patio and Hopper cannonballs out as if she’s been held prisoner all night. Hilbert, however, takes his time. He usually walks over to the door, settles down on the mat, and just watches things for about ten minutes. Eventually, having decided that everything looks safe, he saunters out.
The funny thing is that if I go out, he’ll follow me immediately. Apparently he doesn’t trust Hopper’s judgment, but he does trust mine. Or perhaps he just trusts me to protect him from whatever monsters might be out there.
