Amy Goodman will be following up her coverage in Tampa of the Republican National Convention with a reception and talk at The Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg on Friday, August 31. She will discuss her new book The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope. Co-written with Denis Moynihan, The Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate media reporting to dig deep into the politics of â€œclimate apartheid,â€ the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent â€œFrom Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza.â€ Throughout Goodman and Moynihan show the work of ordinary people to change their mediaâ€”and change the world.
Amy Goodman's show Democracy Now has been one of the most popular shows on WMNF since 1994. Democracy Now airs on more than 1,000 public television and radio stations in 35 countries. Goodman is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the 'Alternative Nobel Prize' for "developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media."
