Host, “Democracy Now!”; Author, Breaking the Sound Barrier and Standing Up to the Madness
Goodman has exposed human-rights violations in East Timor and Nigeria, has been arrested covering the Republican National Convention and was the first person to interview exiled Haitian President Aristide. “The role of reporters,” she says, “is to go to where the silence is and say something.” Known for her dedication to untold stories and issues that are chronically overlooked, Goodman has made a mark as an investigative journalist who looks beyond mainstream media news. Now it’s your chance meet the icon and ask her what the news should really be talking about.
