Democracy Now!


#1 source for NSA spying/Eric Snowden news.

A daily TV/radio news program, hosted by Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez, airing on over 900 stations, pioneering the largest community media collaboration in the United States.


Democracy Now! is a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez. Pioneering the largest public media collaboration in the U.S., Democracy Now! is broadcast on Pacifica, NPR, community, and college radio stations; on public access, PBS, satellite television (DISH network: Free Speech TV ch. 9415 and Link TV ch. 9410; DIRECTV: Free Speech TV ch. 348 and Link TV ch. 375); and on the internet. DN!’s podcast is one of the most popular on the web.




WHY INDEPENDENT MEDIA ?



For true democracy to work, people need easy access to independent, diverse sources of news and information.


But the last two decades have seen unprecedented corporate media consolidation. The U.S. media was already fairly homogeneous in the early 1980s: some fifty media conglomerates dominated all media outlets, including television, radio, newspapers, magazines, music, publishing and film. In the year 2000, just six corporations dominated the U.S. media.


In addition, corporate media outlets in the U.S. are legally responsible to their shareholders to maximize profits.


Democracy Now! is funded entirely through contributions from listeners, viewers, and foundations. We do not accept advertisers, corporate underwriting, or government funding. This allows us to maintain our independence.

    Needs improvement (constructive criticism) Constructive criticism. I love democracy now. The app does not have its own shutoff button so you have to go into your phone's settings to do it. It also continues to play when you receive a call.

    Unauthorised application DO NOT DOWNLOAD Making profit selling advertisements utilizing media from non profit advertisement free organization. Completely unethical. Use your browser and visit official website instead.
