Mother Jones Magazine (yes, that’s right — the old time leftist labor publication) has done it again: published a superb backgrounder on events in Bahrain along the same lines as earlier articles on the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt. I’m frankly impressed with the quality of their reporting these days. They get the facts straight, and report more of them, than most of the major news sources.
I disagree with Mother Jones’ editorial stances on a number of issues, but that doesn’t matter. I don’t need others to think for me; I need the raw material — the facts. As long as they keep providing that, I expect I’ll keep reading what they have to say.
