We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

Moe at Jezebel points out the oh-gosh politics and journalism cross in strange ways news that Andrea Mitchell won’t let her hubby Alan Greenspan spend any time alone with his one-time snuggle bunny, Barbara Walters. Moe thinks our generation of women is more comfortable with sharing past partners. I think she’s right, for the most part. Especially in incestuous fields like journalism and politics, it’s sort of inevitable. And if you’re not totally dependent on dudes for your sense of self-worth, you won’t waste your time wondering if your girlfriend gave that one dude something you couldn’t. Mitchell’s situation is a bit different, since she is still in possession of said dude, and since Babs is so freaky. But, still, she should loosen the reigns a bit.
