More Dialogue Than Monologue, Please


Citing "one of the best national political debates in many years," a broad
array of online writers and commentators is asking President Obama to
make question-and-answer sessions like the one he held last week with
Republicans "a regular feature of our democracy." Their petition for
Demand Question Time is here.    

"The exchanges were substantive, civil and candid. And in a
rare break from our modern politics, sharp differences between elected
leaders were on full public display without rancor or ridicule...America could use more of this."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
