Publisher's Summary

Legendary journalist Helen Thomas discusses political news coverage and the reasons the press must be more vigilant at this visit to New York's 92nd Street Y.

During her 60 years covering the White House, Thomas has seen dramatic changes in the way the news is gathered and reported. The dean of the White House press corps, she is the author of two books plus the forthcoming Watchdogs of Democracy?: The Waning Washington Press Corps and How It Has Failed the Public.

Moderator Amy Goodman is the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 300 stations in North America. 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. The book was chosen by independent bookstores as the #1 political title of the 2004 election season. The book was also chosen as one of the top 50 nonfiction books of 2004 by the editors of Publishers Weekly.

All About Amy

Media bias, encouraged by Amy Goodman, ruined an otherwise exceptional interview of Helen Thomas. Amy spent most of the interview spewing hatred of Bush, Cheney, Eisenhower, Kissinger, and any other Republican instead of allowing Helen to be the focus of the story. Extremely bad taste and selfish on Goodman's part. Very disappointed in this Audible presentation.
