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.

Following up on our show yesterday on the Commission on Presidential Debates and its exclusion of third party candidates. On the program, Janet Brown, the Executive Director of the CPD, was reluctant to give out a phone number where people could express their concerns about the CPD’s policies. She said all the relevant phone and fax numbers could be found on their website: www.debates.org. Well Democracy Now! Producer Jeremy Scahill set out to try and find those numbers on the CPD website. Call the Commission on Presidential Debates and tell them what you think: (202) 872-1020
