Static : government liars, media cheerleaders, and the people who fight back by Amy Goodman( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The brother-sister journalist team of Amy and David Goodman once again take on government liars, corporate profiteers, and the media that has acted as their megaphone. They expose how the Bush administration has manipulated and fabricated news and how the corporate media has worked hand in glove with the powerful to deceive the public. The Goodmans cut through the spin and static to offer the truth about war, torture, and government control of the media. Mixing investigative reporting and interviews, Static presents voices of dissidents, activists, and others who are too often frozen out of official debate, to shed new light on urgent issues of war and peace. This book is a rallying call for people to take back our government, our media, and our world.--From publisher description
Standing up to the madness : ordinary heroes in extraordinary times by Amy Goodman( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A timely, inspiring, and even revolutionary look at who wields the greatest power in America--everyday people who take a chance and stand up for what they believe in--but also offers advice on what you can do to help. The sister-brother team of Amy and David Goodman traveled the country to detail the ways in which grassroots activists have taken politics out of the hands of politicians. As the Bush administration has waged war abroad and at home, it has catalyzed a vast groundswell of political action. This book tells the stories of everyday citizens who have challenged the government and prevailed. From African-American residents of deluged New Orleans who are fighting to regain their homes, to four librarians who refused to spy on their patrons, challenged the PATRIOT Act, and won, citizens are rising to extraordinary challenges--and changing the way that politics is done.--From publisher description

One bright shining moment the forgotten summer of George McGovern( Visual )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice, and positioned ideas and people first. However, what is remembered today as being the ultimate political defeat of the American Century may also have been its high watermark. The film poses this central question: what does the crushing electoral defeat of a man so well respected for his decency and intellect say about the electoral process, the American government, and more importantly, what does it say about the forces at work on the American people---then and now?
The silenced majority : stories of uprisings, occupations, resistance, and hope by Amy Goodman( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate media reporting to dig deep into the politics of "climate apartheid," the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent "From Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza." Throughout Goodman and Moynihan show the power of ordinary people to change their media--and change the world"--

Independent media in a time of war( Visual )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist Amy Goodman criticizes the pro-military bias of the corporate news media, whose reportage of the U.S. invasion of Iraq downplays or ignores the impact on civilians while overstating the success of U.S. military operations. She illustrates her points with clips of mainstream media juxtaposed with rare footage from independent reporters in Iraq. She argues that dialogue is vital to a healthy democracy, and that the commercial news media have failed to represent the "true face of war."

'Deserter' is a political road movie with one of the few happy endings that this war has given us"--Container

Iraq the logic of withdrawal by Anthony Arnove( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Similar to the Vietnam War, today the U.S. is in another war of aggression in Iraq. Mirroring the Vietnam happy talk of lights at ends of tunnels, General Peter Pace, the head of the Joint Chiefs announces that things in Iraq "are going very, very well." The unprovoked U.S. attack has caused widespread death, destruction and civil strife. Sectarian violence is escalating. Virtually all non-Bush Administration sources say Iraq is fragmenting under the stress of invasion and occupation. Yet the President continues his "stay the course" rhetoric. How many more Americans and Iraqis will die for a war that should never have been fought?

Beyond the green zone : dispatches from an unembedded journalist in occupied Iraq by Dahr Jamail( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

&Ldquo;International journalism at its best.”—Stephen Kinzer “Every conflict spawns a handful of journalists who are willing to not only brave the war zone but to seek out the stories ignored by the press pack. The Iraq War has brought us Dahr Jamail. . . . I suspect Jamail’s account will prove an enduring document of what really happened during the chaotic years of occupation, and how it transformed ordinary Iraqis. . . . It tells everything.”— Mother Jones “From the earliest days of the war, Dahr Jamail has been a human conduit for the voices of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. In the face of tremendous personal risk, his commitment to the crucial, principled task of bearing witness has never wavered, and this extraordinary book is the result.”—Naomi Klein Named by AlterNet as one of the top three progressive books of 2007 alongside Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine and Jeremy Scahill’s Blackwater , Dahr Jamail’s Beyond the Green Zone goes past the polished desks of the corporate media and Washington politicians to tell first hand of the reality of life in Iraq. Dahr Jamail is an independent journalist who has covered the Middle East for more than four years. Jamail writes for the Inter Press Service and many other outlets and is a regular guest on Democracy Now! . He lives in California. Amy Goodman is a best-selling author and the host of Democracy Now!
