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.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and millions of people across the US will be sitting at the dinner table and tucking into a feast of roasted turkey, scalloped potatoes, squash casserole and corn bread. But while they may have taken special care in the preparation of the food, they may be surprised to learn about the hidden ingredients in the feast: Radiation in the drumsticks, antibiotics in the roasters, genetically engineered organisms in the cornmeal and red dye in the cranberry jelly.

Guests:

  • Dr. David Wallinga, physician working with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy in Minnesota.
  • Andrew Kimbrell, from the Center for Food Safety.
  • Michael Colby, Editor of the Food and Water Journal. Speaking from Vermont.
