Exception to the Rulers
Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media That Love Them
In The Exception to the Rulers, award-winning journalists Amy and David Goodman expose the lies, corruption, and crimes of the power elite, an elite bolstered by large media conglomerates. Their goal is “to go where the silence is, to give voice to the silenced majority.”

“Amy Goodman has taken investigative journalism to new heights.”
“A gadfly's life in these turbulent times is neither restful nor boring, and Goodman's perspective on events like genocidal massacres in East Timor and mainstream coverage of the Jessica Lynch rescue is both important and alarming.”
