Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

CYNTHIA MCKINNEY SCORED AN IMPORTANT AND HISTORIC VICTORY IN TUESDAY’S ELECTION. NUMEROUS PUNDITS HAD PREDICTED THAT THE OUTSPOKEN AND PROGRESSIVE BLACK CONGRESSWOMAN FROM GEORGIA WOULD NOT PREVAIL IN A MAJORITY WHITE DISTRICT AFTER THE SUPREME COURT RULED THAT HER PREVIOUSLY BLACK DISTRICT HAD BEEN RACIALLY GERRYMANDERED. HER VICTORY WAS TRULY INSPIRING: HER DISTRICT HAD BEEN TWO-THIRDS BLACK AND IS NOW TWO-THIRDS WHITE.

GUEST: CYNTHIA MCKINNEY
