Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month.

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.

Serbs are still enraged today over NATO’s bombing of a Belgrade hospital that killed four people and wounded dozens more. The missile hit the hospital’s neurology clinic and injured medical staff and patients, including two women who were struck by glass as they were giving birth. At least 70 pregnant women were transferred to another hospital after the blast. NATO said yesterday that one of its missiles missed a military target by 500 yards, but has been reluctant to acknowledge it struck the hospital.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright stifled speculation today about a pause in NATO bombings, saying the alliance was not considering a halt to the air campaign. As the attacks continued last night, the latest reports say that NATO missiles damaged the Swiss, Spanish, Norwegian, Libyan and Israeli embassies in Belgrade.

Guest:

  • Jeremy Scahill, Pacifica reporter. Speaking from Budapest.
