PRAISE FOR AMY GOODMAN
"Amy Goodman has taken investigative journalism to new heights of exciting, informative, and probing analysis."—Noam Chomsky
"You can learn more of the truth about Washington and the world from one week of Amy Goodman's Democracy Now! than from a month of Sunday morning talk shows. Make that a year of Sunday talk shows. That's because Amy, as you will discover on every page of this book, knows the critical question for journalists is how close they are to the truth, not how close they are to power."—From the Preface by Bill Moyers
“Amy Goodman has taken investigative journalism to new heights.” —Noam Chomsky
“You want public broadcasting to be balanced against all these elite establishment voices that get heard? Get Amy Goodman on public television.” —Bill Moyers
“What journalism should be: beholden to the interests of people, not power and profit.” —Arundhati Roy
“At times when people are told to ‘watch what they say,’ Amy Goodman is not afraid to speak truth to power. She does it every day.” —Susan Sarandon
“[Carries] the great muckraking tradition of Upton Sinclair, George Seldes, and I. F. Stone into the electronic age.” —Howard Zinn
“Amy Goodman continues the quest for global justice and awareness by bringing us stories and a perspective that we don’t normally get from the mainstream media.” —Danny Glover
THE RULERS TAKE EXCEPTION TO AMY GOODMAN
“Hostile, combative, and even disrespectful.” —President Bill Clinton
“A threat to national security.” —The Indonesian military
“I have advised my mother to talk to no reporters because of … people like you.” —Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich
Amy Goodman, award-winning host of the daily internationally broadcast radio and television program Democracy Now!, 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. From community organizers in New Orleans, to the courageous American soldiers who've said "No" to Washington's wars, to the victims of torture and police violence, we are given the extraordinary opportunity to hear ordinary people standing up and speaking out. Written with all of the fierce intelligence and passion for truth that millions have come to expect from Amy Goodman's reportage, Breaking the Sound Barrier proves the power that independent journalism can play in the struggle for a better world, one in which ordinary citizens are the true experts of their own lives and communities.
Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist and syndicated columnist, author and the host/executive producer of Democracy Now! airing on nearly 800 stations worldwide. Goodman is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the 'Alternative Nobel Prize' for "developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media.". Goodman is the co-author with her brother, journalist David Goodman, of three New York Times bestsellers: Standing Up to the Madness, Static, and The Exception to the Rulers.
From Publishers Weekly
In this collection of her best online columns, award-winning investigative journalist Goodman showcases a broad knowledge of history and a carefully considered point-of-view, left-leaning but driven by principles rather than party affiliation. A talk radio host and columnist, Goodman takes an anti-establishment stance that eschews experts and sound bites to get to the center of highly charged stories: illegal detention of journalists at the 2008 Republican National Convention, murder by the thousands in East Timor, silver-tongued politicians and executives caught in lies, and more. Fans may be disappointed that no new material has been included, but those unfamiliar with Goodman's work will discover a bold voice that refuses to mince words regardless of the topic or target, along with a wealth of behind-the-headlines reporting.
