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.

House Republican leaders are considering legislation that would restrict youth access to video games, movies and other entertainment containing violent and sexually explicit material. The proposal would also require record companies to put copies of song lyrics in stores.

The provisions are among several prepared by House Judiciary Committee Chair Henry Hyde to include in legislation cracking down on juvenile crime.

Today we take a look at Rep. Hyde (R-Ill), who became famous when he led the impeachment process against President Clinton.

As Hyde investigated Clinton’s sex scandal, our next two guests, Pacifica station KPFA producers Dennis Bernstein and Leslie Kean, were investigating him. And they have just published a book called ??Henry Hyde’s Moral Universe: Where More Than Time and Space are Warped.

Guests:

  • Dennis Bernstein, Producer and host of "Flashpoints," a daily program on Pacifica station KPFA in Berkeley.
  • Leslie Kean, Producer of "Flashpoints."
