Democracy Now!

Program #GOOA002. Recorded in Burlington, VT on October 13, 2000.

Democracy requires an effective system of communication that informs and engages the citizenry. Without broad-based, diverse media, the key issues of power and resource allocation are deflected and ignored. James Madison had a keen sense of this. He said, "A popular government without proper information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both." Today, with each new media merger, spaces for independent voices contract.

Speaker(s):

Amy Goodman

Amy Goodman is the award-winning host of Democracy Now the daily syndicated radio and TV program. Howard Zinn says, "Amy Goodman has carried the great muckraking tradition of Upton Sinclair, George Seldes, and I.F. Stone into the electronic age, creating a powerful counter to the mainstream media." She's the author of The Exception to the Rulers and Breaking the Sound Barrier.
