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.

    Bad app, great content Hard to use and requires forced closing often. It would be so nice to be able to move forward and back but it causes the app to freeze and close down

    Awful app, and illegal. I only recently learned that this app is illegally using copyrighted content to make money for someone completely unaffiliated with Democracy Now. Shame! Not only is that criminal, it's unarguably unethical. Also, the app is a real piece of crap anyways. It's buggy, ineffective, uses a lot of memory for no good reason. So don't download it.

    App. Is not endorsed by Democracy Now! This app. Is making money with highly irritating, flashing and blinking ads. That is an instant delete. Cannot read the stories because of overbearing ads. Never again.

    Horrible App This app has a lot of glitches. It skips audio and does not play full segments. It is not authorized by Democracy Now and is being used solely as a vehicle for advertising.
