Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist, syndicated columnist, author and the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, an independent, global weekday news hour broadcast in English and in Spanish on more than 1,100 public television, radio and Internet stations around the world.

Amy Goodman is the author of four New York Times bestsellers:

“Breaking the Sound Barrier” breaks through the corporate media’s lies, sound-bites, and silence in this wide-ranging new collection of articles. In place of the usual suspects, the “experts” who, in Goodman’s words, “know so little about so much, explain the world to us, and get it so wrong,” this accessible, lively collection allows the voices the corporate media exclude and ignore to be heard loud and clear.

“The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media That Love Them” is a fast-paced 350+ page expose. Part first-person on-the-ground reporting, part old-fashioned muckraking, the book chronicles the struggles of what Goodman calls, “the silenced majority.

“Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders and the People Who Fight Back” once again takes on government liars, corporate profiteers, and the media that has acted as their megaphone.

“Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times” tells the stories of everyday citizens who have challenged the government and prevailed.
