Amy Goodman and her team deserve the highest praise for this long running programme - it is one of the few shining lights of the US media scene, and perhaps one of the only programmes that truly cares about stripping bare the veils of imposed secrecy that plague the news media today in the United States. It does not try to be sensationalist, or to dress up stories in a false glamour, it just tries to tell the news as it is, with honesty and integrity. My hat is off.
Not to be missed.
Probably my favourite source of US news. Honest, earnest and a breath of fresh air amongst increasingly homogenous large news networks.
