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. Today a generous funder will match your donation 2 to 1. That means when you give $15 today, your donation will be worth $45. So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to help make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

With all the focus on China during the last two days of the Senate campaign finance hearings — including accusations of a plot by Beijing to undermine the American electoral process — we thought we would take a short look at what exactly is happening around China policy and fund-raising in Washington.

Guest:
• Ken Silverstein, the co-editor of Counterpunch newsletter and the author of a recent article in The Nation magazine on the China lobby.
