Suddenly having on-demand access to the entire Democracy Now podcast library is like winning some kind of unquantifiable lottery -- and we all, miraculously, have the winning ticket. Amy Goodman is, in my opinion, the best independent journalist of our times, courageously blazing trails where the corporate media yes-men fear to tread.
Unlike either Fox or Air America (which I can't really get into), Goodman and Gonzalez and the rest of the DN staff give amazing reportage, covering all sides of an issue - one could say that it's decidedly left, but it's anything but partisan... One gets the sense that their allegiance is to the truth, and the public interest.
Amy Goodman deserves the Pullitzer Prize. Hurricane Katrina coverage? The East Timor massacre? Take your pick.
