Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. In this US election year, Democracy Now! is more important than ever. For 20 years, we’ve put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power. We 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. A generous funder will match your donation dollar for dollar if you donate right now. That means when you give $10, your donation will be worth $20. Pretty exciting, right? So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you every day.

Students Hooked on Good Journalism

April 11, 2007
Teach Democracy Now!

I ask my students to report on one episode of Democracy Now, connecting it with the required class material. They may do more than one, and in some cases they want to continue to listen as well as report; which, of course, is the reason I require them to listen and write in the first place. Not only do I want to hook my students on good journalism, but the show also combines nicely with my Sociology course material where it is easy to incorporate some of the segments into the class discussions. It is exciting and rewarding to watch the expansion of Democracy Now in the past few years. Sometimes it seems to be the only sane voice coming through the radio.
