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 DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

A Learning and Teaching Tool for Educators

Teach Democracy Now!April 16, 2007

“I use Democracy Now! first and foremost as a learning tool for myself. I was a student-teacher last year for U.S. History and I often used the Democracynow.org search engine for the different subjects I was going to teach. There were so many hits on each subject and even just listening to Democracy Now! daily, informs me of the anniversaries of so many key U.S. historical events. I also used Democracy Now! coverage of Video News Releases by the government to teach students historical thinking; that is, the importance of the source when doing anything as common as watching the daily news. Students reacted well to the video news release of the Iraqis praising Bush and America and then learning that this was pre-packaged and produced by the State Department. I intend to use Democracy Now! as a teaching tool as I begin teaching the “Rise of Democratic Ideas” to Sophomores. I love the availability of the show from full-text transcriptions to mp3s to podcasts.”
–Emily Burton, World History Teacher, Gilroy High School
