Amy Goodman, award-winning host of the daily, internationally broadcast radio and television program Democracy Now!, breaks through the corporate media's lies, sound bites, and silence in this wide-ranging new collection of articles. In place of the usual suspects - the experts who, in Goodman's 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.

Written with all of the fierce intelligence and passion for truth that millions have come to expect from Amy Goodman's reportage, Breaking the Sound Barrier proves the power that independent journalism can play in the struggle for a better world, one in which ordinary citizens are the true experts of their own lives and communities.

    " This book as well as Amy Goodman's fine journalistic work exposes the vast limitations of our generally heard and seen corporately-funded (and skewed) news reporting (or lack thereof). "

    " Insightful, amazing that this stuff isn't reported in the news. But for an entire book, I have to say, I'd love to see some positive news reported as well. "

    " great coverage on many topics - very short pieces. to make it 5 stars, I would want more linkages or more depth. "
