Make that a year of Sunday talk shows. Thats 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 MoyersAmy Goodman, award-winning host of the daily internationally broadcast radio and television program Democracy Now!, breaks through the corporate medias lies, sound bites, and silence in this wide-ranging new collection of articles. In place of the usual suspects—the experts who, in Goodmans 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 whove said No to Washingtons 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 Goodmans 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.
