Now in paperback, the national bestseller that challenges the corporate and political hypocrisy that has silenced America n Exception to the Rulers, award-winning journalist Amy Goodman exposes the lies, corruption, and crimes of the power elite-an elite that is bolstered by large media conglomerates who obscure the truth. Her goal is 'to go where the silence is, to give voice to the silenced majority,' and she is fond of quoting Margaret Mead: 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.' This book informs and empowers people to act on that principle.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Amy Goodman is one of the few genuine journalists left. While the fawning, sycophantic 'liberal media' is sucking up to the George Bush Junior regime, she puts her life on the line to reveal the facts about the criminality and corruption of the US corporatocracy amd its support for brutal third-world dictators that oppress and commit genocide against their own people. She also reveals how the US media has become the propaganda arm of the regime, banging the drum for war against Iraq, Iran and anyone else who stands in the way of corporate America's all-consuming greed. Reading this book is an education about what 'spreading freedom and democracy' really means. Highly recommended.
