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 TRIPLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go three times 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.

Trump Holds Packed Rally as U.S. Coronavirus Deaths Near 200,000 

HeadlineSep 14, 2020

As the U.S. COVID-19 death toll approaches 200,000, with over 6.5 million confirmed cases, President Trump held a campaign rally in Henderson, Nevada, Sunday. It was Trump’s first indoor event since his June rally in Tulsa, which was linked to a surge in coronavirus infections. The rally was attended by thousands, violating Nevada’s restriction on gatherings of 50 or more people.

Politico is reporting communications aides at the Department of Health and Human Services have been demanding to review and alter weekly reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the coronavirus. The aides reportedly complained negative news coverage would undermine Trump’s optimistic messaging about the pandemic.
