Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. 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. Wearing two is even better.
-Amy Goodman

Guardian Journalists Barred from Trump Event in Scotland

HeadlineJun 27, 2016

Trump has barred yet another journalist from his events. During Trump’s two-day visit to his golf resorts in Scotland over the weekend, Guardian reporter Ewen MacAskill asked Trump about how British politicians weren’t meeting with Trump because he is “regarded as toxic.” Trump called him a “nasty guy.” The following day, Ewen MacAskill and a Guardian photographer were denied entrance to Trump’s golf course. A security press list reportedly had “No Guardian or Buzzfeed” penciled on top. Among other outlets whose journalists have been booted from Trump events or explicitly banned are Politico, Univision, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast and The Des Moines Register.
