Our Holiday Gift to Mid-Michigan (Clare, Gratiot and Isabella Counties)

Five Hours Each Week of “Democracy Now” - Live from New York

Beginning Monday, Dec. 11 our 3-county area of Michigan will finally have something to counter Fox-TV and Rush Limbaugh. Those of you who subscribe to Charter Cable in Gratiot, Isabella and Clare Counties need to tune in Monday through Friday every week to Channel 3 at 8 a.m. or set your TIVO or VCR to record it for you. We promise you will see things on Democracy Now you will not see or hear on what passes for media in America today. Enjoy!!!

The hour-long daily program will be coming to you live from New York thanks to the Isabella County Democratic Party and MAC3-TV. It was Charles Novitski’s involvement and frustration with our area’s right wing media that got us to this point. City Commissioner Jim Moreno donated the satellite dish for the live feed and the ICDP paid much of the cost to install the satellite tower and Free Speech TV donated the final equipment to make it all happen.

This is a holiday gift that will keep giving since it is a permanent fixture on public access television as long as that lasts. If you’ve seen our other Updates you know our lame duck legislature could eliminate that. Please see our earlier posts if you haven’t called to register your voice in opposition to HB6456.

What is Democracy Now?

Democracy Now! is a national independent news program, hosted by award-winning journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez and produced out of the Downtown Community Television Center, a community media center in New York City’s Chinatown.

The show is committed to covering issues the conventional media avoid and bringing the voices of the marginalized to the airwaves. Goodman and Gonzalez’s engaging reports feature interviews with activists, muckrakers, visionaries, artists, academics, and "ordinary folks" who share a commitment to truth, justice, diversity, and peace.
