Amy and Denis began collaborating on a weekly column for King Features in 2006. This timely new sequel to Goodman’s New York Times bestseller, Breaking the Sound Barrier, gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent.
The Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate media reporting to dig deep into the politics of “climate apartheid,” the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent from Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza. Throughout Amy and Denis show the work of ordinary people to change their media—and change the world.

"Amy Goodman is not afraid to speak truth to power. She does it every day." — Susan Sarandon
