Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

The panel allowed a few minutes or so of questions from the floor.

Tape:

  • Kris Abrams, producer of Democracy Now! In Exile’s War and Peace Report, asks the New York Times and CNN why there is so little coverage of the anti-war movement
  • Barbara Crossette, correspondent for the New York Times
  • Karen Curry, Vice President and New York Bureau Chief of CNN

And we’re joined in the studio by Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief, Al Quds Al-Arabi. Al Quds Al-Arabi is an Arabic-language daily based in London with a circulation of 100,000. A few years ago, he traveled to the mountains of Tora Bora in Eastern Afghanistan — where the U.S. is currently bombing — to interview Osama bin Laden.

Guest:

  • Abdel Bari Atwan, editor-in-chief, Al Quds Al-Arabi.
