Reviews For Democracy Now! Video

I’m a fan of DN but I found this to be lazy and overly righteous journalism. The original people of what is called Western Sahara would probably take offense to the people who occupy that area now as victims. The current day Morrocans and the people in “Western Sahara” look like the same descendants of Arab migration to this region.
If ure not watching this dhit right here nga.... u don’t know dhit. True story! But for real. I wouldn’t be the person I am right now if it wasn’t for DN. It is heavy so once again if u only eat cooked food this is may be hard to digest. For those who know how valuable raw is it’s invaluable. Love y’all! If there is a god, DN is the only reason she hasn’t wipe us off the face of the earth
Thank you Amy, Juan, Nermeen and the Democracy Now team for providing such crucially relevant war and peace stories from those actually involved, delivering raw unfiltered interviews and footage from events rarely covered by mainstream media, and for volunteering your time, passion, courage and genius to us Americans and the world on a daily basis. You are the best.
7am M-F One thing first i must have me a “Good” healthy dose of some Amy “man” if u dont get it 4get it. To all the members of the Democracy Now family Thank you.
Daily headlines with sufficient detail. And a daily comprehensive news story. Thank you.
this is the only media i gave money to and would happily promote. downloading has been really slow though, i wonder if there’s something fishy here — corporations trying to suppress Democracy Now...
Watch daily. Independent news, just the facts!
I recommend this to anyone interested in learning about how we got here, what is currently going on, and what is likely to happen. I love the focus on the movements—this is sooo different from the other media who wants us to give up defeated before we even begin to fight.
First off, I don't care much for the majority of what is reported on this podcast, especially Climate Change arguments and Trump Russia collusion. Never ONCE dose this podcast even talk about the wrongs going on with their pet favorites, namely Hillary and Bernie. Only the good stuff is talked about and if any sort of negative reporting is found, it's addressed as "Allegedly" or "Misrepresented." The podcast is poorly named in my opinion, should be called "Alt-Left Journalism News." Far as I'm concerned they forfeited any right to use the name Democracy Now when they did a positive reporting on Castro after his death, there is NOTHING good whatsoever about Communism and Communist leaders. There's two sides to a story, interviewing only the left side is just being bias. Also, collage professors, collage brats, radical left anarchists and Boo-Hoo Bleeding heart media whores are not credible sources for educational opinions. That's just propaganda and nonsense.
This is a great podcast, but for the past few months, I have not been able to download the video version. I don't understand why.
Amy Goodman is a breath of fresh air after listening to the national media.
Accurate and comprehensive journalism
This show is strictly for the wild crazy left and socialist. Keep leaning to the left more, and more to finish killing off the Democrat Party for good.

5/5

Democracy Now is my go-to source for in-depth, ethical journalism. Amy Goodman is an incredibly courageous and dauntless reporter who embodies the true spirit of journalism to shine a light where there is none, to question the claims of those in power, and to privilege the voices of the unheard. Sometime co-host, Juan Gonzalez, is a towering figure in investigative journalism as well. I have depended on DN for news for a decade, and for insight into history: their archives span back to before 9/11, and are a rich source of firsthand information. Love DN, cannot recommend highly enough.
This is one of the least accurate sources of information I have ever seen. The goal of this podcast is obviously to keep is listeners missinformed and ignorant of what is really going on or happening. They don't even pretend to be journalist. This is for the extreme Alt-Left. The fact that they would even lable this as News & Politics is laughable. You would be better informed if you didn't listen to anything then having listened to this. Lack any substance and has to resort to name calling of anyone who would dare to disagree. Seriously, don't waste you time wathing this if your goal is to be well infomred.
Thank you Amy Goodman! I am so happy to have Democracy Now! on various platforms, which makes it convenient for me to learn about relevant topics
This show used to be better... now it is obsessed with Julian Assange and various other criminals. They don't even bother mentioning that Assange is a criminal and anti-American. This whole show is becoming anti-American. Not what is needed right now.
Democracy Now! has quickly become one of my favorite ways to get the news that the mainstream media outlets tend to gloss over. They provide solid in-depth reporting and generally always have a great group of commentators and activists. I love the focus on the injustices imposed upon minority groups in this country: Lantinx, black communities, women, LGBTQ people, and many more. Their coverage of international issues are always very succinct and the journalists on the ground are passionate and willing to ask the tough questions.
Democracy Now is like a grown up civics class for those of us who were lucky to have civics class in school! As a retired person, I love the clear, articulate and informational nature and presentation of current events!!!
Democracy Now fulfills it's mission to bring unflinching information to the public. It is the ONLY National journal in the USA that I can trust. I give it my highest recommendation.

Poor, biased journalism (my least favorite aspect is how Amy Goodman asks leading questions, esentially putting opinions in her guest's mouth), but it's interesting to see the POV of some knowledgeable people that would otherwise not get time on network news or PBS. I prefer Charlie Rose to Goodman.
On one episode you will see a few thousand marchers rioting in the US painted as heroes, while 2 million protesters marching in Brazil (think 1% of the population) protesting the left-wing corrupt president who has destroyed our economy? Just a protest from the "rich" In another episode you will hear American police being described as brutal, yet ironically you will have some Cuban paid by Castro complaining about the USA for 15 minutes, never mind the police brutality that happens there.
It's great to have found news outlet that isn't owned by giant corporations.
This is the real news.
A great deal of what is presented in "Democracy Now" these days consists of unconfirmed stories particularly during their foreign coverage. In that process DN frequently becomes the propaganda apparatus of interest groups and governments that are more interested in self-preservation than in truth or justice. While I am a very active, discerning critical-thinking liberal I cannot stomach disinformation from the left because it ALWAYS backfires and because it usually supports folks who claim to be on the side of justice and instead are oppressing others in the name of "socialism", "revolution", "the people", etc. The other problem is that for us progressives, truth is our greatest weapon and as I write the other side manufactures false data, false studies, false interest groups and false science. The last thing "we" need in folks disseminating lies in the name of our sacred causes.
I used to watch this daily. I don't since in can be very protracted. But when I need more extensive news and analysis it can be a great alternative to the mainstream media.
Awesome app
There are few equals to Democracy NOW! in any medium. Luckily for sharp people interested in the real world, DN! is available in many relevant formats. My only gripe is that is isn't a 24-hour news outlet that could cover movements like OWS, as the corporate outlets obviously have no interest in reporting their crimes and complicity with unchecked power and unaccountable institutions. Viva Democracy NOW! Six stars out of five!
It appears AT&T has imposed a 50Mb download cap which disqualifies DN! From being downloaded directly to iPhone. I've checked your previous file sizes and you are right there on the cusp. Please try and keep it under 50 if you can. Thanks for everything you do. Still 5stars.
I've been watching Amy, Juan and the others for years. I've often wondered how they've escaped the wrath of the military-corporate-congressional complex DN so fiercely challenges and exposes in corrupt debauchery. The humanity they bring into their reporting and interviews does much to mitigate the sorrows rained down upon us by the 1%. Invariably, a DN report will launch me on a quest to learn more about an issue, a group, a person I had till then not known. DN is watchdog, teacher, friend. Thank you.
News without the fluff, commercials or corporate sponsors. My first experience with real journalism. Conversations with those who ought to be the most influential individuals in our society. LEGITIMATE.
Amy, You're a national treasure. You and Juan Gonzalez are true journalists beyond compare in bringing the world to us.
Simply the most honest and round coverage of important world events American news media has to offer. Corporate media sound like tabloid crap after just a few episodes of Democracy Now. Thanks for all your efforts & sacrifices. Never stop.
Incorrectly labeled as activism by the corporate advertising spinnetworks, DN defines the integrity of journalism in the truest sense and function. Here are the facts omitted, the fine print left out, on the forefront of the human struggle for justice and equality, not achievable by compromised institutions. Without exposure of the relevant honest facts by free speech, which in a sense defines the founders definition of American Patriotism, Democracy suffers. Corporations are not People.
Just watched them handle an issue, they brought on two guys from the same side (they only differed on tactics), and no one from the other side.
a program with no corporate spin is so rare to find and yet here is an excelent one! get corporations out of the media!
Dude, just download the audio version, and only listen to the 1st 7-15 mins or so! That 1st segment of the show is always just a reading of several important international and domestic headlines, anyway. It's exactly what you're looking for! In fact, they DO package it separately...for radio stations who just want to play the headlines.
A professor introduced me to this program, as a reference to media that seeks to tell more truth than other news industries. In Her class I have learned so much about the selfish interest of our society and founders that it has truly opened my eyes. This is a great program that keeps me open to true society.
I turn to this show for the news that NPR declines to cover for fear of being accused of "liberal bias."
By consistently revealing what powerful corporate & government interests don't want us to know, Democracy Now has distinguished itself as one of the most important news broadcasts in the country. As another reviewer points out, it is often depressing... but Amy Goodman doesn't insult our intelligence by trying to gloss things over. Maybe it does skew toward the left a bit, but since corporate media (from FOX to CNN to ABC NBC & CBS) is always advancing a right-wing, corporatist agenda, a bit of perspective from the other side can only be a good thing.
I know they are a news organization that leans way to the Left, but they do provide real issues that matter and that we would not get anywhere else on more mainstream media. I always look forward for the news on DN! Keep up the good work!
Loved the journalist Allison Kilkenny on the latest episode I would definately like to see her on again to talk about US Uncut!
I have a very favorable impression of Democracy Now, but an hour a day is way more than I can fit into my collection of feeds I keep up with. I would love it if they could package up something shorter. How about something with 15 minutes or less per episode, collecting the best or most important parts of the longer show? Even one episode per week would be fine. It would be the difference between my being able to keep a connection with Democracy Now vs not keeping one. I can't be the only one in this situation.
Great program- that exposes what a show global politics are. The 9/11 cover up needs more attention via democracy now, which is my main criticism of DN. Riots world wide because of global governance that run the world for their benefit and leave the slaves nothing! We are coming establishment scum!!! Hahaha! Your done you sick oligarchs!!!!
Amy Goodman brings a depth of understanding to the conflict in Egypt that has been missing in ALL other news coverage. The speech by a woman begging the men of her country to join her in protest bought me to tears. Only Ms. Goodman brought this to us unedited--filled with the heartwrenching emotion that spurred a nation to stand as one. EVERYONE should see this episode. Your lives will be forever altered.
If only more people would tune into real news like this, America will truely be a Democracy. If you snooze you loose
A voice if clarity in the infotainment wilderness--What I love most about this show is not just that they deliver intelligent, in depth coverage of substantive news, but that they refuse to believe there's no audience for it.
We appeal to Democracy Now and Apple Inc to restore this for download in iTunes, especially on mobiles.
