Amy Goodman in Taos,NM & Las Vegas, NV tomorrow -- heads up

Rachel e-mailed a Democracy Now! e-mail (you can sign up for those at the Democracy Now!) web site and asked if we could note Goodman's upcoming appearences again. Yes, we can, and we can also note that the Un-Embed the Media link on the left of this page will take you to the book tour.

But before we do that, I want to note a paragraph in the e-mail which is usually stated by Amy Goodman in each episode of Democracy Now!:

Democracy Now! airs on over 300 radio and tv stations, including Pacifica and community radio stations, NPR stations, public access tv stations, PBS stations, and on Free Speech TV (DishTV Ch. 9415) and LinkTV (DishTV Ch. 9410, DirecTV Ch. 375), World Radio Network's European Service and on the Community Broacasting Association of Australia service.

A number of members have been fortunate enough to watch Democracy Now! on TV or listen to it on radio. (I watch online.) If you're a member who can receive on TV or radio, judging by your e-mails, you've started utilizing that resource. But if you have those resources but aren't aware of them, I'll take the blame for that because I always stress the Democracy Now! web site here. Charlie, who's unable to hear online (which prevents listening or watching) was very excited to find out that he could hear the broadcast on his radio.

At Democracy Now! (online) you can find maps that will help you find out if Democracy Now! broadcasts in your area (and if you have DishTV, you can pick it up anywhere in North America).
