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

2019 Izzy Awards Honor Earth Island Journal, Laura Flanders, Aaron Maté & Dave Lindorff

HeadlineApr 03, 2019

And the 2019 Izzy Award “for outstanding achievement in independent media” will be shared between four recipients: Earth Island Journal and journalists Laura Flanders, Aaron Maté and Dave Lindorff.

Earth Island Journal’s issue on “Women and the Environment” highlighted the often-ignored connections between environmental rights and women’s rights.

Journalist and TV host Laura Flanders is being honored for her work exploring alternative political, social and economic models, and her recent reporting on the rise of the Labour movement in the U.K.

Independent journalist Aaron Maté—formerly a Democracy Now! producer—consistently challenged the media’s coverage of the Russia-Trump campaign collusion story, known as “Russiagate,” in his reporting for The Nation.

Dave Lindorff’s investigation into the Pentagon’s accounting practices revealed it has been fabricating numbers in its annual financial reports to Congress, obscuring the Pentagon’s actual spending and making the agency unaccountable for its budget. Lindorff is the founder of the alternative news site ThisCantBeHappening.net.

The Izzy Award is presented by the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College and is named for legendary dissident journalist I.F. Stone.
