Help Protect Journalists!

***UPDATE***  Ben indicated to me that, while he appreciated the gesture, he'll take care of getting his glasses replaced on his own and that he would like ALL donations to go to the Committee to Protect Journalists (https://www.cpj.org/). New goal of $10,000. He told me that "protecting journalism is far more important than the state of my spectacles right now."

On May 24, in Bozeman, MT, Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the Guardian newspaper, was body slammed by Greg Gianforte, a candidate running for the Montana U.S House seat, for asking a question about healthcare. During this outrageous attack, Mr. Jacobs' glasses were broken. Let's help him get a new pair.
