Amy Goodman

Amy Goodman is a broadcast journalist, syndicated columnist and author, who has been news director of Pacifica Radio station WBAI-FM in New York City for over a decade. Goodman is best known as the principal host of Pacifica Radio's Democracy Now! program. As the title suggests, the coverage of the peace and human rights movements and the support of independent media are the hallmarks of her work. In her second book Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders, and the People who Fight Back Goodman takes a look behind the slick fa├žade of politics, mass media and after all today`s society. Additionally Goodman managed to build up a reputation with attention-getting actions like her spontaneous interview with Bill Clinton in 2000. Goodman has received dozens of awards for her independent grassroots political journalism, including the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award. In 2008 Goodman was the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award.
