Breaking the Sound Barrier | [Amy Goodman, Bill Moyers (foreword), Denis Moynihan (editor)]

Breaking the Sound Barrier

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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." (Bill Moyers)

"By bringing us the perspectives of those too often denied access to the media megaphone, Breaking the Sound Barrier is crusading journalism at its best." (Arianna Huffington)

"Amy Goodman is a towering progressive freedom fighter in the media and the world. Breaking the Sound Barrier is another expression of her vision and courage." (Cornel West)
