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. Today a generous funder will match your donation 2 to 1. That means when you give $15 today, your donation will be worth $45. 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 help make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

“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
