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 every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

Students Hooked on Good Journalism

download:   Feeds

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.
