Dec 5 Mon Democracy Now’s 20th Anniversary Celebrated with Chomsky and Belafonte at Riverside Church

Chomsky and Belafonte speak truth to power at the 20th Anniversary of Democracy Now, a unique television platform for the underdog and critics of the current system

Speaking Truth to Power
A rare opportunity to celebrate the achievement of an independent alternative tv news program run at a very high professional level by an exemplary host who maintains the objective and impartial style of the science that she learned in anthropology at Radcliffe before going into a role in which she models how news should be presented by her inferior commercial rivals.

Amy Goodman
Amy-Goodman Amy Goodman is the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 1,400 public television and radio stations worldwide. The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard honored Goodman with the 2014 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence Lifetime Achievement Award. She is also 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.” She is the first co-recipient of the Park Center for Independent Media’s Izzy Award, named for the great muckraking journalist I.F. Stone, and was later selected for induction into the Park Center’s I.F. Stone Hall of Fame. The Independent of London called Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! “an inspiration.”
