Democracy Needs Strong Independent Media

Independent media outlets make sure Americans get real news, not fluff. In the last year, nonprofit Mother Jones magazine has stood out with its courageous coverage of income inequality, reproductive rights, gun violence, and the presidential election.

Democracy can only thrive when there's a strong independent press dedicated to reporting the truth about politics, corruption, and our rights. That's why Mother Jones' investigative journalism will be so crucial in 2013 and beyond.

I cannot imagine anything more laughably ironic than claiming a leftist blog devoted to misinformation and one-sided attacks against Conservatives as being independent thinking.

Mother Jones is miles ahead of the clueless corporate media, exposing the agenda of the right-wing extremists who are trying to reshape america. Show your support for independent journalism that keeps us informed when it matters the most.

No thanks; I just want the REAL media to stop acting like they are Mother Jones.

Good lord; this would be laughably amusing if not so pathetically true.
Thanks from Tony

Truth Detector - haven't you noticed? The left's most important weapon is to take the very things they are most guilty of and claim their enemies do it. Strikingly similar trait to one of obama's staunches supporters, Hugo Chavez. I bet obama was sorry he couldn't make the funeral.

Since the media has been AWOL the past 20 years I think someone could get rich inventing an interpreter for our TV's. I mean, they already have someone typing out subtitles that scroll across our screens. Why not just stick someone in there who knows how to cut to the chase? Just imagine the headlines we’d have seen the past week.

Obama’s poll numbers drop from 52 to 45 in one week. The country is suddenly 7 per cent more racist.

Chris Mathews declares Obama is God. Again.

Strong arm dictator dies. No, not Obama, Chavez.

North Korea announces plans to launch Dennis Rodman into space.

Eric Holder says banks still too big to fail.

Eric Holder says drones are coming to a store near you.

This is so painfully true and our wise founders recognized the importance of a free press devoted to exposing the evils of politicians; on ALL sides.

It should not matter what party is in charge; if they do something really stupid and against the intent of our Constitution, they should be called on it.

Today, many correctly view the press as the media arm of the DNC. Watch any program carried by the media as news or political discussion and the bias is obvious; of course you have the occasional tokin admonishment from the press when they cannot ignore Democrat chicanery or stupidity, but for the most part the headliners are about the doom of the Republican Party (gee, heard that one many times before) in front of a panel of Liberals who just want to help Republicans ::wink wink::

You just might be an extreme low information voter if you get your news from Mother Jones.
