Democracy Now is a very good radio/TV program broadcast in many parts of the US. The host Amy Goodman is a heroic journalist who, with Alan Nairn were brutally beaten by Indonesian soldiers and came close to death covering the Santra Cruz, East Timor massacre back in 1991.
Democracy Now is a one-hour news and analysis program broadcasting as both a TV and radio program from studios in NYC at 8 AM Eastern Time via various small radio and community access cable TV stations. It is the first news program whose coverage is informed by the Chomsky-Herman propaganda model of the media in capitalist societies (See “Manufacturing Consent” - The Political Economy of the Mass Media (1988)). Consequently, Democracy Now focuses on all the vitally important news and analysis - much of it of a “elephant in a living room” nature - that is ignored by the corporate media because it contradicts the capitalist or (in the US) US-exceptionalist narrative.
You might be interested in knowing that your government once blocked Amy Goodman from entry into your home country because they were afraid that she would say something unflattering about the Vancouver Winter Olympics (such as the usual displacement of the poor for the Olympic facilities, etc.). In reality - having little interest in sports, she didn’t even know about the Vancouver Games.
Democracy Now is also pretty much the sole broadcast source for the Canadian political-economic-environmental activist, critic, and author Naomi Klein. Few would have heard of her in the USA if it weren’t for Democracy Now.
