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?

Last week in Oklahoma City, a grand jury was convened to investigate allegations that more people were involved in the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building than just convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh and his alleged co-conspirator Terry Nichols.

Oklahoma Representative Charles Key and Glenn Wilburn, an accountant who lost two grandsons in the bombing, led a group of volunteers who gathered over 13,000 signatures to force the grand jury review. Guests: • Jim Ridgeway covers the far right for The Village Voice, a weekly newspaper based in New York City. He is the author of Blood In The Face, a book on the conservative coalition published by Thunder’s Mouth Press. • J.D. Cash, a journalist who has been actively campaigning for the new grand jury investigation.
