Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate 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 into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

VIDEO: Watch Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman on C-SPAN’s “In Depth”

DN! in the NewsApril 08, 2013

Democracy Now!’s award-winning host Amy Goodman appeared live on C-SPAN’s “In Depth” on Sunday, April 7th. Click here to watch. The interview will re-air on Saturday, April 13th at 3 ET.

“In Depth” features a comprehensive, three-hour look at one author’s work, with questions from viewers via phone and e-mail.

Goodman is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the 'Alternative Nobel Prize' for “developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media.” She is the first co-recipient of the Park Center for Independent Media’s Izzy Award, named for the great muckraking journalist I.F. Stone. She also received the George Polk Award and the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting.

During the program, she discussed the five non-fiction books she has co-authored, including: The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media that Love Them; (2004); Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders, and the People Who Fight Back (2006); Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times (2008); Breaking the Sound Barrier (2009); and The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope (2012).
