Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A sweeping look at both the origins of the show and its unique role in American political life. It’s also a scathing critique of corporate media and its corrosive culture.” Salon
“If you’re of the opinion that the big events and pivotal moments we’ve been seeing over the last decade or two is overblown or easily dismissed, read this book and see how the salient details of the American political and cultural landscape have unfolded in the Internet age. Likely Democracy Now! was covering it. This work will inform and enlighten you.” Pittsburgh Post Gazette
Presents the voices of people prevented from earning livable wages, fired for organizing for labor rights, incarcerated unjustly, bombed illegally, discriminated against, foreclosed on, spied upon, disenfranchised, and deported. They call us to the better angels of our democracy.” National Book Review
“A twenty-year chronicle of a radio, TV, and Internet broadcast program whose mission has been to expose, defy, and edify…an important source of news and analysis…From Clinton to the current presidential campaign, no politician escapes the authors’ critique…An impassioned book aiming to fuel informed participation, outrage, and dissent.” Kirkus Reviews
“Goodman uses her radio experience to provide listeners with a memorable audio experience. Her voice is somewhat thin, but it urges us to listen to it. She presents information clearly and simply, allowing the words and stories to take precedence over her performance but not letting us forget that she’s guiding us through material she believes we need to hear.” AudioFile
