In The Exception to the Rulers, award-winning journalists Amy and David Goodman expose the lies, corruption, and crimes of the power elite, an elite bolstered by large media conglomerates. Her goal is to go where the silence is, to give voice to the silenced majority. This audiobook includes numerous archival audio excerpts, including statements from filmmaker Michael Moore, civil liberties victims describing their harrowing ordeals in the United States after 9/11, correspondent Jeremy Scahill, poet Martín Espada, death row prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, and much more.

    " A marvelous journey through Amy Goodman's escapades as a journalist with equal parts adventure and education. A bit dry at times, but quite a good read nonetheless. I would read another one of her books in a heartbeat. "

    " Goodman is a good journalist, but she's a below average writer. This book's heart is in the right place, but it's redundant and kind of boring. "

    " I have read most of this book, but not every section/chapter due to jumping to different sections that intrigued me the most at the time. I plan on reviewing the parts I've already read and reading the sections I skipped in the future. "

    " Some stressful and amazing stories of reporting forgotten news stories from around the world. I had read a lot of the material about Bush Jr's policy during his reign, but had not heard as much about the oil companies in Nigeria and the Indonesian regime in East Timor. Angering and revealing! "
