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.

  • Why Is Npr Fighting Public Radio?

    As members of the National Association of Broadcasters continued their convention this weekend, hundreds of activists rallied outside to protest the trade association’s aggressive stance against Low Power FM (LPFM) or micro-radio, and to demand increased non-commercial, locally controlled, public interest media in this country. At the same time, NPR was also targeted, because to the surprise of many, they have been playing an active role in opposing low-power FM in Congress.
