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.

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.
