If you are like me you may have been distressed when Democracy Now! stopped being recorded on your DVR. For true democracy to work, people need easy access to independent, diverse sources of news and information.
Democracy Now! is still broadcast on KIXE Channel 9.3 at 8 a.m. Monday-Friday, but you may have a hard time recording it on your DVR or Tivo, because that time slot shows up in error labeled as Indians Like Us, Sacred Journeys With Bruce Feiler and Local USA.” According to Rob Keenan, KIXE’s Director of Content, there is an unresolved problem with the online scheduled program information supplied to TV Guide.
Democracy Now! is broadcast on Pacifica, some NPR radio stations (but not including NSPR nor JPR), 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. Locally, it is available on Charter Ch. 290; Comcast Ch. 189; and Northland Ch. 117. It is also broadcast on Shasta County Arts Council TV (SCACTV) Charter Ch. 181 at 5 p.m. and at 11 p.m. M-F.
Democracy Now!is a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez. The station is funded entirely through contributions from listeners, viewers, and foundations. They do not accept advertisers, corporate underwriting, or government funding. This allows them to maintain their independence. There are many ways you can support Democracy Now!
