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.

It is Invaluable!

“I’ve used Democracy Now! as a powerful example of confirming corporate media bias in my University classes. I’ve found that what students find most striking is a comparison between the headlines carried by DN! and that of the main stream media, followed by a discussion of which stories are more essential to informing a democratic citizenry. Inevitably, DN! usually wins hands down. I’ve also found that DN! can be a useful tool in illustrating the reliance on "experts” (usually white, male business and/or government officials) by the main stream media and that there is no dearth of alternative sources and voices out there, as DN! shows. Which begs the question, why do these other voices never appear in the main stream media? Indeed, my use of DN! always stimulates vigorous debate and forces students to question the accuracy and interests of corporate-controlled media. It is invaluable!"
