You turn to Democracy Now! for news that you simply won’t get anywhere else. I’m writing today to ask you to click here to donate to Democracy Now! and make this vital coverage possible.
Your tax-deductible donation to Democracy Now! brings you the news you need to make decisions about the most important issues of the day: war, peace, the economy and the environment.
During the U.S. presidential campaign season, commercial media reduced their news coverage to make room for more ads, raking in billions in campaign advertising dollars. While their news coverage shrank, Democracy Now! expanded the debate, bringing you the voices of third-party candidates absent from commercial election coverage.
Support Democracy Now! today to hear the voices whited out by the mainstream media.
Democracy Now! doesn’t accept advertising or corporate funding—we rely on generous contributions from you to maintain our editorial independence. Make your donation to Democracy Now! today.
By supporting Democracy Now! today, you’re choosing to get your news from the perspectives of whistleblowers, war resisters, dreamers and dissenters—the ordinary heroes of these extraordinary times.
In November, Democracy Now! brought you an exclusive report on the pre-trial proceedings for accused whistleblower Bradley Manning, where he revealed the harsh conditions in which he has been detained for the past two years.
We spoke with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who called Manning’s treatment “some kind of terrible disincentive for other potential whistleblowers from stepping forward.”
Escalating drone strikes, the ongoing war in Afghanistan—the longest in U.S. history—and the alarming rise in soldier suicides were barely mentioned in the commercial media. On Memorial Day, Democracy Now! dedicated an entire broadcast to these critical issues by reporting from the NATO Summit in Chicago as U.S. soldiers returned their medals, hurling them at the gates of the meeting.
Your support makes it possible for Democracy Now! to go where the silence is—asking the tough questions, digging for the truth.
A vibrant democracy requires strong independent journalism. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, we continued our daily broadcast despite total blackout conditions at our studios. Going to the heart of the hardest-hit communities, we covered the stories of first responders, residents and survivors. With your support, we connected the dots between climate change and extreme weather, as we’ve been doing for years.
If you count on Democracy Now! to deliver the news you need, please make your tax-deductible contribution today.
During our live broadcast last week from the U.N. Climate Change Summit in Doha, Qatar, Democracy Now! covered the events both inside and outside of these historic talks. Donate today to support this unparalleled coverage. Only Democracy Now! featured the voices of youth-led movements loudly and unequivocally calling for drastic action to stop climate change, and also asked tough questions of the U.S. chief climate negotiator.
Support Democracy Now! today to these reports from the front lines of global climate change possible.
Your financial support, story ideas and activism sustain our work.
Thank you for making Democracy Now! what it is today—and what it can be tomorrow.
