Talk: Breaking the Sound Barrier

Amy Goodman breaks through the corporate medias lies, sound-bites, and silence in this wide-ranging new collection of articles. In place of the usual suspects, the experts who, in Goodmans words, know so little about so much, explain the world to us, and get it so wrong," this accessible, lively collection allows the voices the corporate media exclude and ignore to be heard loud and clear. From community organizers in New Orleans, to the courageous American soldiers who've said "No" to Washington's wars, to the victims of torture and police violence, we are given the extraordinary opportunity to hear ordinary people standing up and speaking out.
