Amy Goodman - Stories of Democracy, Resistance and Hope
Amy Goodman is an American broadcast journalist, syndicated columnist, investigative reporter and author of six books. Since 1996, She has hosted Democracy Now!: a daily, independent, award-winning news program. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Gandhi Peace Award for “a significant contribution to the promotion of enduring international peace,” the 1998 George Polk Award (with Jeremy Scahill) for investigative reporting on Chevron’s role in Nigeria’s dictatorship, and the 1993 Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting (with Allan Nairn) for coverage of the East Timor independence movement and Santa Cruz Massacre.
In 2016, Goodman was criminally charged in connection with her coverage of protests of the Dakota Access pipeline at Standing Rock, North Dakota. The charges, which were condemned by the Committee to Protect Journalists, were ultimately dismissed.
