Democracy Now!, hosted by Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez: Monday-Friday 8:00 AM

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.

Democracy Now!’s War and Peace Report provides our audience with access to people and perspectives rarely heard in the U.S.corporate-sponsored media, including independent and international journalists, ordinary people from around the world who are directly affected by U.S. foreign policy, grassroots leaders and peace activists, artists, academics and independent analysts. In addition, Democracy Now! hosts real debates–debates between people who substantially disagree, such as between the White House or the Pentagon spokespeople on the one hand, and grassroots activists on the other.

New stations are adding Democracy Now! to their programming schedules all the time, and there are several movements going on around the country right now to bring Democracy Now! to new communities. To find out more about these efforts, and how to get involved, click here.

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.

The nationally-syndicated one hour daily public radio program “Background Briefing” with Ian Masters offers an alternative media platform in a media landscape dominated by monopolies and oligopolies following the loss of net neutrality in what could be the last frontier of non-commercial non-corporate media left in the country.
Instead of the interviewer as the anchor or media personality, the guests are the “stars” and the goal is to extract the most insightful and salient information while allowing the facts to speak for themselves and the objective truth to follow its own non-ideological course.
“Background Briefing” focuses on national security in the broadest sense going beyond defense and intelligence to encompass the soft power of cultural influence, economic strength and social justice covering everything from healthcare to human rights, the environment to enterprise, sociology to science, the law to labor, immigration to innovation, race to religion, economics to education, transportation to technology
