Jeremy Scahill Wins George Polk Book Award for "Blackwater"

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.' His reporting and Congressional testimony helped propel legislation that would ban U.S. government security contracts with Blackwater and other private military companies."

Democracy Now! in Le Monde Diplomatique

It has almost no paid resources, yet daily defies the corporate and government agendas, and has sometimes forced mainstream media into picking up its stories, if not its attitudes.

Regis Philbin watches Democracy Now!

Default

Regis talks about his dinner with Amy Goodman on his show Live with Regis and Kelly.

REGIS: And on my right was Amy Goodman — I was unfamiliar with the name. “What do you do, Amy?”… She says, “We cover global events.” … Well, now, excuse me, but what am I going to have in common with someone who covers global news? … : The beautiful baby contest? 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.
