Amy Goodman was keynote speaker at WMNFâ€™s 2nd annual Peace Awards on Saturday. During her half-hour address she spoke about her arrest at the 2008 Republican National Convention, the death of her mother and the controversy surrounding the proposed Islamic Cultural Center in lower Manhattan. Goodman criticized opposition to what some media outlets, like MSNBC, still incorrectly call the â€œGround Zero Mosque.â€
