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.

Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan began writing a weekly column, “Breaking the Sound Barrier,” for King Features Syndicate in 2006. This timely new sequel to Goodman’s New York Times bestseller of the same name gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent.

Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the country, and is carried on more than one thousand radio and TV stations globally.

Investigative reporter, author, columnist, and DN! host Amy Goodman has received numerous awards, including the Right Livelihood Award (widely known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize”), the Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship, the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting, the George Polk Award, and the Armstrong Award, along with honors from the Park Center for Independent Media, the Paley Center for Media, and American Women in Radio and Television.

Denis Moynihan is the co-founder of Democracy Now! Since 2002, he has participated in the organization’s worldwide distribution, infrastructure development, and the coordination of complex live broadcasts from many continents. He lives in Denver where he is developing a new noncommercial community radio station.
