Investigative reporter, author, columnist, and DN! host Amy Goodman has received numerous awards, including the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting, the George Polk Award, and the Armstrong Award. At Campbell Hall, she will discuss her new book that raises issues about the corporate media’s lies, sound-bites, and silence in a 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, Breaking the Sound Barrier is, in Arianna Huffington's words, "crusading journalism at its best."
“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 morning 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 Foreword by Bill Moyers.
