Left or Right, this program digs at relevant issues...
Every show slants to the left or the right, it's up to us to watch both sides. After watching both FOX NEWS and other conservative channels, I prefer to watch DN because of it's absence of sensationalism. DN gets to the point and digs into details with facts to back up their reports. I may not agree with all of their views or their slant to the left at times, but I do respect their emphasis on details and facts. Not every show is a gem, but most shows inspire me to pay more attention to the culture of corruption in U.S. and world politics. It's made me swear to exercise my right to vote in every election.
Unusually good journalism
"U.S News", in this day and age, is an oxymoron. Democracy Now! is now my ONLY CONSISTENT source of news. Why ? Because I am the odd conservative who believes that the Bush agenda has usurped even MY basic right to a freeflow of information in favor of the agenda of the administration's greedy friends. We are living in indecent times and I believe that Amy Goodman's work is one of the very few opportunities that this country will once again rise to represent the values of the general population and not that of a few crazies who have hijacked the oval office.
My #1 Source of news
After discovering DN and carefully listening to their podcasts I have found myself turning to DN as my main source of news and information. When I listen to CNN or (god forbid) FOX, I have to laugh to myself due to their weak and shallow presentation of the stories I just heard on DN.
