Social Media Frees ‘Democracy Now!’ from Arrest – Amy Goodman

Complete video at: fora.tv “Democracy is a messy thing,” says Amy Goodman. The Democracy Now! host revisits her controversial arrest while covering a protest at the 2008 RNC. She praises social media sites like YouTube and Twitter as guardians of free speech. —– In the Gallery: Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan talk about Breaking The Sound Barrier. Amy Goodman, award-winning host of the daily internationally broadcast radio and television program “Democracy Now”, breaks through the corporate media’s lies, sound bites, and silence in this wide-ranging new collection of articles. In place of the usual suspects—the “experts” who, in Goodman’s words, “know so little about so much, explain the world to us, and get it so wrong”—this accessible, lively collection allows the voices the corporate media exclude and ignore to be heard loud and clear. From community organizers in New Orleans, to the courageous American soldiers who’ve said “No” to Washington’s wars, to the victims of torture and police violence, we are given the extraordinary opportunity to hear ordinary people standing up and speaking out. – Book Passage Amy Goodman is the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!. She is co-author of the national best-seller The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media that Love Them written with her brother David Goodman.

    @GDI109 Oh. Yeah, me too. That’s why I posted here in the first place. Amy Goodman makes such a jackass of herself, it’s just too hard to resist.

  2. GDI109 says:

    @DCPackFan truthfully, i just like harassing jackasses over the internet.

  3. DCPackFan says:

    @angelwithbighorns Ms. Goodman, is that you? Your impeccable grammar is giving you away, but I see you haven’t improved you argument any.

  4. DCPackFan says:

    @GDI109 She might know how to spell dissent, but I wonder if she knows to use upper case at the beginning of a sentence. If she did, would that make her less of a crazy liar, or are you conceding the point?

  5. angelwithbighorns says:

    @DCPackFan Fuck you shithole right wing fucktard.

  6. GDI109 says:

    @DCPackFan maybe, but at least she knows how to spell “dissent”. lulz n00b

  7. DCPackFan says:

    Press credentials are not a license to break the law. They were in an area that was restricted for security reasons. This wing-nut makes it sound like they were arrested just for protesting, or what she calls “descent”. Not only is she crazy, she’s a liar.

  8. Engelen51 says:

    @MrBEB123 Racist.

  9. MrBEB123 says:

    The left likes to use the word Democracy but what they really want is a third World invasion of America knowing full well that non-Whites are overwhelmingly liberal and thus anti-White. They scream Democracy but at the same time try to suppress any kind of Conservative point of view in the Jew controlled news media. Democracy Now! is a sham left wing organization that stands for anything but Democracy, tyranny would be more like it.

    welcome in russia! oops it’s usa.

  12. rachelgolem says:

    How many progressives are in jail, anyway?

  13. Goohuman says:

    It sounds horrible. I don’t believe this woman is telling the whole story, but there is no excuse for removing press passes and batteries from cameras. I would like to know what the circumstances were at that moment of arrest.
    You have my support now, but if I find out from another source that you left out the part where you were breaking some law, then how can I trust you with your claims of abuse?

    Hey #UN#,

    This was a pretty cool vid.

  15. 1kash123 says:

    Severe Civil rights crimes are committed in Canada by authorities against citizens who try to use their constitutional civil right of not talking to them. This anti-democracy, authority attacks happen with lazer/tazer type guns which work through concrete walls of your home from outside or even the floor above. They rape women with these high power guns, also abuse their access to high ranking officials giving them one side of false story against citizen who questions their abuse of power.

    It’s over. Even the pretense of a free society has been abandoned. Welcome to the totalitarian age.

  21. curtmaly says:

    Great video! I justhad to leave a comment! Yep…GREAT!

  22. Skydancer365 says:


    Well, I’ve come to the conclusion that about 95% of Republicans completely suck but only about 80% of Democrats completely suck. So I believe we can use activism to take over the Democratic party.


    @Skydancer365 Democrats are just as bad we really need a revolution in the states.
