This is an interesting book, and a book worth reading. It's written in an informal and engaging style, and it's a quick read. It's mostly about the media coverage of particular events, and the connections between politicians, corporations, and unpopular regimes. The book begins with Amy Goodman describing the Santa Cruz massacre in East Timor, which she witnessed with fellow journalist Allan Nairn. What I liked the most about it is that you learn Amy Goodman's passionate views about the purpose of the media as a democratizing force. In my opinion, she definitely deserved the Right Livelihood Award.
