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. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. 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.
-Amy Goodman

Reese Erlich, Author and Reporter on U.S. Imperialism, Dies After Battle with Cancer

HeadlineApr 09, 2021

Longtime reporter and author Reese Erlich has died after a battle with prostate cancer. He co-authored the best-selling book “Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You.” He also published books on U.S. foreign policy in Iran, Cuba and Syria. In his final column for The Progressive, published just two weeks ago, Erlich wrote, “I hope I’ve helped explain some complicated world issues you might not otherwise have understood. I hope the activism earlier in my life and my writing and speeches later have helped bring about progressive change.” Click here to see our interviews with Reese Erlich.
