I am not a third through Amy Goodman’s explosive The Exception to the Rulers and I tell you that you must read it. It is amazing. She is fearless in her quest to expose big government, big business, big oil where it happens – regardless of political party. From a third-degree inquisition on Bill Clinton (transcript) to backing Newt Gingrich into a corner during his own press conference – she is the ultimate badass.
The only ground rule for good reporting is that you don’t trade your principles for access. We were treating the president not as royalty, but as a public servant accountable to the people.
Hell yeah. She’s going on tour so you might be able to see her speak… I have to quit reading the book because I get so angry I can’t focus on the next chapter.
