Ms. Magazine Considers Washington Bureau

And all I know so far is that they want me to pay for it. Ms. Magazine has announced its intentions to open a Washington bureau, in the form of a standard fundraising missive. Let's take a look at Ms.'s plans:

Dear [Possible Donor],

Feminists have an unprecedented opportunity to move forward. At this transformational time in history, Ms. is determined to be on the frontlines, keeping feminists armed with the knowledge we need at this historic time.

Ms. is opening for the first time a Washington Bureau—and we need your help. [Link to page suggesting a donation of $35 to $5,000, by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express to help open Washington Bureau].

Our nation must and will make massive changes. But change is never easy. To help ensure it is the change we need and want, feminists must organize, organize, organize. And we must be armed with rapid fire, behind the scenes knowledge from a fearless feminist lens. Ms. is determined to meet the challenge.

We want Ms. reporters in the White House and the halls of Congress. Imagine President Obama or Speaker Pelosi calling on a Ms. national correspondent at their press conferences [Link to page suggesting a donation of $35 to $5,000, by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express to help fund questions to Nancy Pelosi].

Ms.—together with its daily online wire service and MsMagazine.com—must gear up and ratchet up its unique analysis and investigative reports. [Link to page suggesting a donation of $35 to $5,000, by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express to help fund unique analysis and investigative reports]. This is our moment. For so long we feminists have worked, picketed, and taken action for real change. We must maximize the opportunity now [Link to page suggesting a donation of $35 to $5,000, by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express to help maximize opportunity].

Please help Ms. meet the challenge of our times and establish a Washington Bureau. We can make a difference. We can reform the debate with information so powerful it cannot be denied. [Link to page suggesting a donation of $35 to $5,000, by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express to help empower undeniable information].

Please make a special, tax-deductible "This is our Moment" contribution to Ms. today. Put Ms. reporters on the frontlines. [Link to page suggesting a donation of $35 to $5,000, by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express to help fund our moment].

For a strong feminist media and future,

Katherine Spillar
Executive Editor

Feminists must be empowered with rapid fire, behind the scenes reporting from a fearless feminist lens. Help Ms. meet the challenge and open our first-ever Washington Bureau.
