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. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Bradley Manning Sentenced to 35 Years In Prison

Web ExclusiveAugust 21, 2013

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking classified information to Wikileaks. Manning faced a maximum of 90 years in prison after his conviction last month on charges of espionage, theft and fraud. Manning’s sentence will automatically go the Army Court of Criminal Appeals, where he can seek a reduction of his prison term. Manning has already served 1,293 days in prison since his arrest in May 2010. That time will be subtracted from the sentence.

Tune in Thursday: Democracy Now! airs Alexa O’Brien’s exclusive interview with Bradley Manning’s attorney David Coombs.
