Amy Goodman, the award-winning host and executive producer of Pacifica Radio’s "Democracy Now!", has for years confronted the Washington establishment and its corporate cronies. Her goal is “to go where the silence is, to give voice to the silenced majority.” Her book _The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media That Love Them_, written with her brother David Goodman, chronicles the tireless efforts of an unembedded journalist and her colleagues to get to the truth and expose the lies, corruption and crimes of the power elite – an elite that is bolstered by large media conglomerates. _The Exception to the Rulers_ was chosen by independent bookstores as the #1 political title of 2004. The editors of Publishers Weekly also chose the book as one of the top 50 non-fiction books of 2004.

Amy’s appearance coincides with the paperback release of _The Exception to the Rulers_; the lecture will be followed by a book signing. The event is featured as part of a week of talks by independent journalists hosted by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.
