The Nation’s Chris Hayes on Michele Bachmann’s Bull

The Nation‘s Chris Hayes crowns Congresswoman Michele Bachmann the Demi Glas of Wingnuttia for her ignorant attack on the stimulus plan.


Congresswoman Michele Bachmann did not let facts or reality stop her from attacking the stimulus plan on arguments that had already been discredited by the time she hit the airwaves. In light of such ignorance, The Nation‘s Chris Hayes determined the hard right-wing positions of Bachmann and other congressional Republicans will lead to increased electoral irrelevance.

Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
