Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.

We’ll keep this short. Jon “Getting Excited!!!” Stewart, an American comedian, devotee of sandwiches, critic of cats, dabbler in democracy, fanboy of Mitch McConnell, publicist of Tucker Carlson, and haver of plans, is back. His new show, The Problem With Jon Stewart, premieres tomorrow on Apple TV+, free for a limited time, after six years hugging the sidelines in cowering fear of his own shadow as the world collapsed. No pressure. Welcome back.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
