Amy Goodman 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. As Willie Nelson says, “There is no one who should be more on the mainstream media, every day reminding us and giving us a glimpse of the power of one.”

What others have said about the book:

"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
