On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, Amy Goodman, co-host of Democracy Now! will be speaking at Mt. Holyoke College. Details can be found here. Amherst Media will be on hand to film the event for later broadcast.
Goodman will speak about increased threats to freedom of the press and the importance of truly independent media to hold those in power accountable. In more than 20 years of reporting, Democracy Now! has covered the social movements that are now forming the groundswell of opposition to the Trump administration; movements long ignored by the corporate media, but central to Democracy Now!'s daily journalism.
Amherst Media airs Democracy Now! live weekday mornings at 8am and again at 5pm on channel 12.
