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 2016. And, today a generous funder will match your donation dollar for dollar. That means when you give $10 today, your donation will be worth $20. 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 2016.

Oklahoma City Bombing Trial II: The Beast Reawakens

November 04, 1997

Yesterday, opening arguments began in the trial of Terry Nichols. Step by step, frame by frame, prosecutors led jurors up to the day of the Oklahoma City bombing, calling it the successful end of a plot concocted largely by Terry Nichols. Today, we are going to take a journey from Oklahoma City to Germany and Italy, a circuitous route, but an interesting tour through fascism and militarism in Europe and the U.S.
