And They Call It Democracy is a radio program which ran from June 2005 to November 2008 on KPOV-LP in Bend, Oregon, United States. And They Call It Democracy's tagline is "news and analysis from a leftist, socialist, and environmentalist perspective".
Broadcasts generally consisted of coverage of current events, especially related to politics, media, and US relations with Latin America. A number of English and Spanish news sources were used. Analysis and opinion was provided by Jeffries and often focused on the fundamental differences in the reporting of the issues by mainstream US and alternative or Latin American sources. Each section of the show (except for some of the earliest broadcasts) was read by Jeffries in both English and Spanish. A few broadcasts featured Jeffries' wife (a native Spanish speaker) providing the Spanish translation.
