HELLO PHILADELPHIA! DEMOCRACY NOW RETURNS TO PUBLIC TELEVISION!!!!!!! 

WOW! The e-mail below came today from DEMOCRACY NOW's Outreach Organizer Nikki Smirl, letting Philly folks know that the news show is BACK ON THE AIR in Philly!

Is it POSSIBLE the numerous e-mails and phone calls some of us put through to DEMOCRACY NOW have actually made a difference!? Or is this the doing of WYBE alone I wonder? Not sure, but WHO CARES! This is one of the ONLY news show in America worth watching, now that Bill Moyers has been fired from the PBS show NOW, and replaced with that fascist-light knuckle-head David Brancaccio!

AMY GOODMAN's one of the TRUE heroes of our time! She has a rare COURAGE! AND I WISH SHE WOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT! SHE HAS MY VOTE!

Details are below, hope you're as EXCITED AS I AM! LET'S CELEBRATE REAL FUCKING NEWS COMING BACK TO THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE!
