Democracy Now! correspondent and best-selling author Jeremy Scahill has won the The George Polk Book Award for his book "Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army." The judges said: "Scahill’s work exposed killings, human rights violations and misconduct by the firm’s personnel and revealed the U.S. government’s growing reliance on this 'shadow army.'

That ain’t going to do it! … Santa Claus getting pawed? No!… [The] woman was very interesting, so I tuned her in. She’s on from 8:00 to 9:00 in the morning.

KELLY: That’s really good. So I’m going to tune her in, too.

REGIS : Yeah. Yes, Amy Goodman.
