In 1996, Amy Goodman began hosting Democracy Now! on the Pacifica Radio Network to focus on issues and movements that are often ignored by much of the media. Today Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the US, broadcasting on over 1400 public television and radio stations around the world — with millions accessing it online at democracynow.org.
