Amy Goodman, Host of Democracy Now!

August 19, 2012

Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist and syndicated columnist, author and host of the daily, independent global news hour, Democracy Now!, which airs on more than 1,070 public television and radio stations worldwide. A driving force in the movement to rebuild the public media landscape, Democracy Now! presents people and perspectives rarely heard in the corporate media.

Goodman's fifth book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, written with Denis Moynihan, will be published this fall. This timely sequel to her fourth New York Times bestseller, Breaking the Sound Barrier, gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power-- and refusing to be silent. She co-authored her first three bestsellers, Standing Up to the Madness, Static, and The Exception to the Rulers, with her brother, journalist David Goodman.
