Amy Goodman of of independent news,DEMOCRACY NOW, is a truth-teller! Even though DEMOCRACY NOW is liberal/progressive, they discuss the problems of both the republicans and democrats. It’s my number-one source of truthful news! 2-4-2020, I disagree with David Fromm. He says we have extraordinary prosperity; who he representing? Has he looked at JOB QUALITY INDEX - like the number of people that are making minimum wage or working several jobs or having no health benefits or other benefits? He sounds like a republican or corporate democrat or a person from the DNC! BERNIE, I believe, can beat Rump! Thanks for informing and educating me.

My first political science professor introduced me to Democracy Now in 2009. He assigned the class an assignment of compare & contrast. I’ve been hooked ever since.
