Hofstra Communication Students Visit Democracy Now! Studio

Amy Goodman with journalism students from Mario Murillo's Hofstra class during a visit to the studio of the daily news program, Democracy Now!  

An educational component has been added to this important news program: journalism and communication students can visit the studio and watch the preparation of the morning news program, and speak with the producers and technicians.  This is not the mindless circus that the NBC Today Show holds at Rockefeller Center each morning, but an opportunity for an in-depth look at the research, preparation, graphic design and guest interviews  of one of the most respected news organizations in the world.  In addition of meeting the dedicated staff of Democracy Now!, the students often meet the world leaders who are interviewed live on the program.  Interested teachers and international visitors should contact Democracy Now! for information.
