Author(s): Amy & David Goodman
Exposing America's war profiteers, the media that love them and the crackdown on our rights. A fresh voice from the 'other America', investigative journalist Amy Goodman exposes corporate cronyism, media spin and the systematic undermining of democracy in George Bush's USA. Amy Goodman's The Exception to the Rulers 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 US power elite - an elite that is bolstered by large media conglomerates. For years, award-winning journalist Amy Goodman has confronted the Washington establishment and its corporate cronies. She hosts the national radio and TV show Democracy Now! and is a leading voice in a growing grassroots movement. Her goal is 'to go to where the silence is, to give voice to the silenced majority'. In her bestselling first book, Amy Goodman offers her no-holds-barred perspective on world events and the hidden motives behind those in power. From the deceptions of the George W. Bush administration, to the US drive to control world oil supplies, to the corruption of media monopolies and corporate influence over the government, Amy Goodman attacks and exposes the lies and hypocrisy that put democracy at risk - in the US and elsewhere in the world.
