Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Neil Young premiered his new anti-GMO song and video, “A Rock Star Bucks a Coffee Shop,” on Democracy Now! on Friday’s show. The song appears on his new album, “The Monsanto Years,” which he recorded with Promise of the Real, a group featuring Willie Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah.

After Neil Young shared the video with us, we played it during one of our music breaks. By the end of the day, news spread throughout the music world, from Rolling Stone to Pitchfork.

Some highlights from the press coverage:
