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.

Yesterday the National Organization for Women held a rally commemorating the sesquicentennial of Seneca Falls, but they billed it as only partly a celebration, and partly a protest. New York governor George Pataki has come under fire from NOW and other feminist organizations for leaving the state’s Lieutenant Governor, and only woman delegate, Betsy McCaughey Ross, out of the opening events of the Seneca Falls commemoration, billed as Celebrate 98.

At the rally, NOW president Patricia Ireland and Feminist Majority President Eleanor Smeal demanded a place for McCaughey Ross at the podium tomorrow.
