Award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, is on a national speaking tour to launch her new book, Breaking the Sound Barrier.
Goodman will be speaking tomorrow first at Skylight Books, 1818 N. Vermont Ave. in Los Angeles, from noon to 1:30 pm, and then at All Saints Church, 132 N. Euclid Ave. in Pasadena, at 7:30 pm. Click on the link above for more information. Her book will be available for sale. Goodman has been a tireless champion of independent media for years, and a fierce critic of the corporatization of the news. What we have in this country is a “majority of the silenced,” Goodman says, whenever public opinion on war, the economy, healthcare goes against the establishment, but is largely ignored by mainstream news coverage. This event would be well worth attending.
Democracy Now! can be heard on weekdays from 6–7 am and repeats from 9-10 am on KPFK 90.7 FM. You can also watch online at http://www.democracynow.org.
