Amy Goodman & Denis Moynihan: Breaking the Sound Barrier

In the Gallery: Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan talk about 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.

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.

Amy Goodman is the author of several books, including The Exception to the Rulers. Goodman will be joined by Denis Moynihan of "Democracy Now" & "Free Speech TV".
