Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the standoff at Standing Rock or news about the movements fighting for peace, racial and economic justice, immigrant rights and LGBTQ equality. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. 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 2017. Pretty exciting, right? 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 make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2017.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Please do your part today.

Guests
Tim Wheeler

veteran reporter on growth & development and environmental issues for the Baltimore Sun.

Jim Motavalli

author, editor and columnist. Editor of E — The Environmental Magazine, the only independent national environmental bimonthly. Author of "Breaking Gridlock: Moving Toward Transportation That Works" and "Forward Drive: The Race to Build 'Clean' Cars for the Future." Hosts a biweekly public affairs and music radio show on listener-supported WPKN-FM in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

With all the focus on China during the last two days of the Senate campaign finance hearings — including accusations of a plot by Beijing to undermine the American electoral process — we thought we would take a short look at what exactly is happening around China policy and fund-raising in Washington.

Guest:
• Ken Silverstein, the co-editor of Counterpunch newsletter and the author of a recent article in The Nation magazine on the China lobby.
