Amy Goodman is the internationally acclaimed journalist who hosts Democracy Now!, a daily grassroots global news hour broadcasting over more than 500 radio and television stations (KPFA in Northern California) and on DemocracyNow.org. Amy has received numerous awards for her work, including the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting, the George Polk Award, and the Radio/Television News Directors Award, as well as awards from the Associated Press and United Press International. She lives in New York City. Her brother David Goodman, also an award-winning journalist, is the author of six books and a contributing writer to Mother Jones Magazine. Together, they have written “The Exception To the Rulers” and “Static,” both bestsellers, with combined sales approaching 150,000. Their new book – “Standing Up To the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times” – has already garnered terrific acclaim:

“What journalism should be: beholden to the interests of people, not power and profit.” —Arundhati Roy, author of The God of Small Things

“At times when people are told to ‘watch what they say,’ Amy Goodman is not afraid to speak truth to power. She does it every day.” —Susan Sarandon

“…the great muckraking traditon of Upton Sinclair, George Seldes, and I.F. Stone into the electronic age.”—Howard Zinn

“Amy Goodman continues the quest for global justice and awareness by bringing us stories and a perspective that we don’t normally get from the mainstream media.” —Danny Glover, actor
