Investigative reporting doesn't always have an immediate, visible impact. Sometimes you see a dramatic event—like when the US Department of Justice announced last summer that it was no longer going to do business with private prison companies shortly after we published a big investigation. Sometimes it's more opaque and slow-building, as with the conflict-of-interest reporting that has finally broken through. But the results always come

 

In the next four years, we're going to focus on one thing above all others: fighting creeping authoritarianism and the lies that advance it. We'll fight them with truth, by digging deep and calling a spade a spade, whether anyone else is willing to or not. (Just a couple of weeks ago, CBS—"great guy" Les Moonves' network—amplified Team Trump's slur against democracy, that "millions" of people might have voted illegally, without so much as a qualifier.)

 

Make no mistake: Democracy's fabric is under threat. Not by a coup d'état or an invasion from outside, but because we have allowed its critical institutions—from access to the ballot to the vigor of the press—to fray.

 

At a time like this, it's important to remember that trends don't just go one way.

 

Here at Mother Jones, we've seen that there is an enormous appetite for vigorous, fearless reporting—now more than ever. Covering Trump, and what he represents, will take everything we've got.

GET THE SCOOP, STRAIGHT FROM MOTHER JONES.

So where was Mother Jones "Investigative journalism" when obama was doing his "authoritarianism"??

 

You know, with his pen and phone of which MANY challenges in the Courts resulted in them being declared TOTALLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!

 

We know, it's ONLY "unconstitutional" when Republicans do it, but liberrhoids and demerrhoids ALWAYS get a pass.

 

Which is WHY Mother Jones isn't a CREDIBLE source of anything. They NEVER INVESTIGATE A LIBERHOID ASSHOLE!!!

Mother Jones was a communist. The magazine is communist. When will you so called dems wake up and acknowledge that your party has been taken over by socialists and communists? oblameo has taken down your party and what do you do? You go further left. Racist dems are done for a long time. It is the racism that dems have in their hearts that are turning the blacks to the GOP who are trying to free them from the welfare plantation. Blacks better get on the ball. The communist dems have given up on the blacks and moved their resources to the hispanics.
