HEALTHY DAY! ,

All her shows

Amy Goodman of of independent news,DEMOCRACY NOW, is a truth-teller!

Even though DEMOCRACY NOW is liberal/progressive, they discuss the problems of both the republicans and democrats.

It’s my number-one source of truthful news!

2-4-2020, I disagree with David Fromm. He says we have extraordinary prosperity; who he representing? Has he looked at JOB QUALITY INDEX - like the number of people that are making minimum wage or working several jobs or having no health benefits or other benefits?

He sounds like a republican or corporate democrat or a person from the DNC!
BERNIE, I believe, can beat Rump!

Thanks for informing and educating me.

Amy & Juan R Awesome

My first political science professor introduced me to Democracy Now in 2009. He assigned the class an assignment of compare & contrast. I’ve been hooked ever since.

The source

I have been listening to/watching DN since I found it accidentally on a local university public access channel back in the 2002 and I can say that this program has opened my eyes in so many ways about the importance of independent journalism to free society. I hope Amy and Juan can keep this going for another 15 years at least!
