Hello! You are part of a community of millions who seek out Democracy Now! each month for ad-free daily news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for our in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the voices of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We produce all of this news at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation. We do this without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on support from viewers and listeners like you. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $10 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make a monthly contribution.

This is viewer supported news

The panel allowed a few minutes or so of questions from the floor.

Tape:

  • Kris Abrams, producer of Democracy Now! In Exile’s War and Peace Report, asks the New York Times and CNN why there is so little coverage of the anti-war movement
  • Barbara Crossette, correspondent for the New York Times
  • Karen Curry, Vice President and New York Bureau Chief of CNN

And we’re joined in the studio by Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief, Al Quds Al-Arabi. Al Quds Al-Arabi is an Arabic-language daily based in London with a circulation of 100,000. A few years ago, he traveled to the mountains of Tora Bora in Eastern Afghanistan — where the U.S. is currently bombing — to interview Osama bin Laden.

Guest:

  • Abdel Bari Atwan, editor-in-chief, Al Quds Al-Arabi.
