Great source for news!
Really great source to get information about what is happening. From what I know, Democracy Now is not owned by any huge corporations...it is an independent organization. MSNBC, CNN, Fox and others are owned by corporations, so they tend to only cover what THEY want people to see. On the other hand, Democracy Now covers everything that the can, here in America and around the world. Delete all the main stream media apps and move to Democracy Now to get unbiased, and unfiltered news reports. Thank you to all of the people who are part of Democracy Now!
Audio Streaming Issue
To be clear I give DN as an organization and a daily news show a 500 star rating and my review is purely app based--
I am a long time listener/watcher but I generally get my daily DN on the train listening via the iPhone app. Recently I have been consistently getting an error from the app saying the Internet connection appears to be offline/no connectivity when I try to load the audio, even though my internet is working fine and I can load the video with no problems. I listen every day but this error is making it really difficult to do so, so if you could help out that would be much appreciated!!! Thanks for everything you guys do-
Great app for a great news agency
Democracy Now! is the best news agency I've found, by far. Their coverage is focused on being informative and educational, which is very rare in American media, these days.
As for the app itself, it is easy to navigate and I appreciate the option to either watch or listen to the newscast, depending on one's data availability.
"Just say no" to corporate media and "yes" to this independent, nonprofit, refreshing source of actual news.
