Real news from around the world, coming from a standpoint of protecting and defending true democracy. The only news you need.
Truth is power.
Democracy Now! takes no money from special interests & is 100% viewer supported. Because the fossil fuel industry is not subsidizing them, Democracy Now! can talk about global warming & the destabilization of governments for oil. On CNN or MSNBC we hear a lobbyists version of truth, and many voices are not heard. Democracy Now! gives a voice to the voiceless. Activism & protests & union strikes are covered. It’s a fantastic show & I listen (or watch) every weekday.
