The Nation has made a splash before with provocative and sharp television ads on cable television nationally. The magazine is now going up with its newest ad—about the challenges facing independent journalism, and suggesting The Nation as a smart way to "counter the toxic nonsense on the right."

Our new ad is below; what do you think? Did we make our case, or could we have done better. Let us know in the comments, and please share this ad on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere if you’d like an easy way to support the magazine and independent journalism at large.
