Democracy Now! Featured in Classrooms Around the World

“I always include DN! in a handout at the beginning of the semester that includes a list of alternative and independent media sources. I show the class the website, and show them how to use the search engine to find segments they can use as sources in their papers. Once the students hear DN!, they are always extremely enthusiastic. Other students have used DN! segments on topics ranging from the U.S. refusal to sign the Kyoto treaty, to the current situation in Haiti, to the culture of surveillance in the U.S. and privacy laws, to the East Timor situation. Students often download these segments off the internet directly to their iPods.”
–Rebecca Scherr, Assistant Prof. Of American Lit. & Culture, University of Oslo
