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 everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Secretary Ron Brown’s plane went down today over Croatia. Brown was escorting a group of corporate leaders on a commerce mission to Bosnia and Croatia to get U.S. businesses interested in trade in the region and efforts to rebuild that war-torn country. In this segment we’ll examine the role of the Commerce Department in doing the bidding for American corporations abroad. Some Republicans have called for the elimination of the Commerce Department.
