Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government 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 in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

HeadlineNov 18, 2021

A man whose horned fur hat, face paint and six-foot spear made him one of the more recognizable rioters at the deadly January 6 Capitol insurrection was sentenced to 41 months in prison on Wednesday. Jacob Chansley, also known as the “QAnon Shaman,” had pleaded guilty to obstructing an official proceeding. Chansley was among a group that broke into the Senate chamber and left a threatening note to Vice President Mike Pence that he penned, reading, “It’s Only A Matter of Time. Justice Is Coming!”
