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 everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Republicans are going to federal court today to try to block hand counts by Florida election officials in several counties–an ironic twist for a party that usually takes the position that the federal government should not interfere with states’ rights. How will these elections be considered by historian years from now? We turn to the perspective of radical historian Eric Foner.

Guest:

  • Eric Foner, radical historian and author of many books, including "Reconstruction : America’s Unfinished Revolution," "The Story of American Freedom" and "New American History: Critical Perspectives on the Past."
