BY AMY GOODMAN DENIS MOYNIHAN A prophet of peace has passed. Daniel Berrigan, a Catholic Jesuit priest, a protester, a poet, a dedicated uncle and brother, died last weekend at the age of 94. His near-century on Earth was marked by compassion and love for humanity, and an unflinching commitment to justice and peace.

As Democratic challengers Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton press on in the Democratic primary, Sanders trails in the pledged delegate count by more than 300. Add in superdelegates, and Clinton is just under 200 delegates shy of the number needed to clinch the nomination. Even as Sanders maintains his commitment to stay in the race, voters looking for political revolution are facing the question of whether or not to support his rival Hillary Cl...

Last week Democracy Now! co-host Juan González penned his final column for the New York Daily News, where he’s worked for 29 years. We play González’s speech from last November, when he was inducted into the Deadline Club’s New York Journalism Hall of Fame, becoming the first Latino journalist to be selected for the honor. González reflected on his career. "I figured my modest contribution would be a voice from another part of New York," he said...

Psychologists James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen reaped more than $80 million for designing torture techniques used by the agency. The case was brought by Suleiman Abdullah Salim and Mohamed Ben Soud, two survivors of the program, along with the family of Gul Rahman, who froze to death at a CIA black site in Afg...

We spend the hour with Dave Isay, the founder of StoryCorps, the award-winning national oral history project. In a 1989 radio documentary, "Tossing Away the Keys," he chronicled the case of Moreese Bickham, a former death row prisoner who recently died at the age of 98. In 1958, Bickham, an African American, was sentenced to death for shooting and killing two police officers in Mandeville, Louisiana, even though Bickham said the officers were Kla...

Over the years, Juan González has used his column in the New York Daily News to break major corruption scandals and cover-ups, including the attempt to conceal the health impacts of the toxic dust released on 9/11. Tom Robbins, one of Juan González’s colleagues at the Daily News and a recent Pulitzer Prize finalist for his coverage of violence in New York’s prisons, joins us to reflect on González’s remarkable career as an organizer who led newsp...
