Hello! You are part of a community of millions who seek out Democracy Now! each month for ad-free daily news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for our in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the voices of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We produce all of this news at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation. We do this without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on support from viewers and listeners like you. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $10 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make a monthly contribution.

Democracy Now! helps grad students in Sociology!

RSS

“Students watch the Democracy Now! broadcast two days a week and we watch and discuss some of the most relevant material in class the next day. Some notable moments were teaching students about Iran/Contra (something they had not even heard about), Abu Ghraib (again, astonishingly, news to them), and socialism according to Senator Bernie Sanders. At this point in the semester, many students are watching the broadcasts on their own and more often, and I am very gratified to be able to lift the veil a bit for members of this generation.”
- Judith Wittner, Director, Graduate Program: Sociology, Loyola University
