Hello! You are part of a community of millions who seek out Democracy Now! each month for ad-free daily news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for our in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the voices of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We produce all of this news at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation. We do this without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on support from viewers and listeners like you. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $10 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make a monthly contribution.

It was one of the largest liberal grassroots groups and has become the first victim of political and union fund raising investigations that have already damaged the credibility of the Democratic National Committee and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union.

Guest:

  • Sandy Buchanon, Executive Director of Ohio Citizen Action, one of the state organizations that seceded from national Citizen Action one year ago.
