The Democracy Now! TV program is on a 100-city tour to promote host Amy Goodman's new book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, co-authored by Democracy Now! alum Denis Moynihan.
Today's stop is Los Alamos where the program broadcast live at 6 a.m. across the world via a satellite truck parked in front of historic Fuller Lodge.
Goodman spoke later in the day to a sold out audience at Fuller Lodge about her tense and many times dangerous career as an Investigative Journalist around the world. The talk was a fundraiser for Los Alamos Public Access Channel 8 (PAC 8.)
Goodman told the Los Alamos Daily Post that, "Jean [Gindreau, Executive Director of PAC 8] has been a great host. I've really enjoyed my visit to Los Alamos and it's not over yet," pointing to the long line of fan's ready to buy her new book. The line stretched out the door at Fuller Lodge.
Goodman is an American progressive broadcast journalist, syndicated columnist, investigative reporter and author.
For many years, she has hosted the independent global news program Democracy Now!, broadcast daily on radio, television and the Internet.
