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.

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.

    Crashes when you open it from the recently used apps list, crashes when you press the notification. Rewinding and fast forwarding loses your progress. Ad placement is evil, right as I go to press play, an ad replaces it.

    I would pay for a transcript/direct download service...instead of ads.

    Terrible app, clunky, you have to force stop every time. Don't bother downloading.

    Great News service. Poor App. Does not work well with tablets, video does not show. Poor interfacing. No fast forward ability when listening to a show.

    This app doesn't look as good as a lot of other apps but the content is the most important part of democracy now. They don't have a lot of money to produce an extremely high quality app and they deserve the support! That said, I think the biggest improvement would be chromecast support, bring that please!

    This works like it's still in beta. Ugh.
