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.

Crime figures across the country may be going down, but the number of crime stories on network television news is shooting up. That’s according to a new authoritative study by the Center for Media and Public Affairs, a Washington, DC media research group that looked at more than 90,000 stories on ABC’s "World News Tonight with Peter Jennings," "The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather" and "NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw," airing from 1990 through 1996.

Guest:
• Dan Anundson, the research director of the Center for Media and Public Affairs, a non-profit media research organization that is based in Washington, DC.
