Wonderful Independant News Program
I have watched this on my home station of Access Ft. Wayne, in Indiana, and I was always pleased at the content of the program.
Democracy Now Rocks
Amy Goodman and Democracy Now are a hard game to beat. Not every program is outstanding, in fact a couple of times a week the slant and passion to push a viewpoint get ahead of the report and facts themselves. But that doesn't matter and does not diminish the power of the hits. At least one or two a week, usually more, where the people involved, the articulation of issues and events, and the evident desire to get the story out carry the day. In spades. And MORE.
the best of the best!
