Amy Goodman is a news director, investigative reporter, columnist and broadcast journalist whose show, Democracy Now! The War and Peace Report, has been airing continually and around the world since 1996. Beaten severely in Timor after witnessing a mass killing, called "hostile and combative" by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, and arrested at the Republican National Convention in 2008, Goodman's mantra seems to be "Who are we not hearing from in the traditional media?" Journalism is a great place for an in-your-face woman, isn't it?
