A welcome alternative to “alternate facts”: Democracy Now!

Democracy NowTo view some of the best in investigative journalism, check out Democracy Now! Amy Goodman and co-host Juan Gonzalez travel the country and world, reporting on critical events through a progressive, social justice lens. The hour-long show airs five days a week—often reported from the scene of breaking events with significant human rights issues at stake, as was done in its coverage from the North Dakota pipeline protests.

Frequently aired are in-depth interviews with activists and thought leaders, including Michelle Alexander, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Dr. Cornel West, Noam Chomsky and PICO’s own Rev. Michael McBride. Among the many ways to access Democracy Now: through their website (democracynow.org), on Pacifica’s local affiliate KPFA, podcasts, YouTube, Internet radio and TV, including KQED. — Charles Eddy
