New York City, NY – Award-winning journalist and host of Democracy Now! Amy Goodman is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely recognized as the world’s premier award for personal courage and social transformation. The annual prize, also known as the Alternative Nobel, will be awarded in the Swedish Parliament on December 8, 2008.

The Right Livelihood Award was established in 1980 to honor and support those “offering practical and exemplary answers to the most urgent challenges facing us today”. Goodman has been selected for “developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media.”

Pioneering the largest public media collaboration in the country, Democracy Now! is a daily grassroots, global TV/radio/internet news hour airing on more than 750 public radio and television stations and at democracynow.org.

I'm sure the sick and starving women in Ethiopia will not prosper from Amy's achievement.

I'm with you on this. Also, for another perspective:

Amy Goodman (should be Badman or Badwoman), along with Howard Zinn, William Blum, and all those other Jewish poseurs who label themselves "progressives" should be exposed for all their perfidy and hidden allegiances. Not to mention other bright but deceptive media lights like William Rivers Pitt or Paul Craig Roberts, and let's not forget the Arch Shabbez Goy Alex Jones. lol

Maybe these fine, upstanding pillars of the community should attempt to explain why they are razor sharp about the wanton excesses of America and the United States, yet conspicuously fail to identify the Jewish links that cause so many of these serial disasters: Actions by Banks, Media, Medicine, Entertainment, which are all meticulously assembled like a devil's symphony to destroy the societies on which they are imposed.

I figure they should have to come clean about all these issues FIRST, before being handed an award. Nobel Prize for any of the aforementioned, is a bloody disgrace. A bullet in the head wake up call for the general public to be made aware of the dangers of such people being lifted to idol status.

It hurts all of mankind, and should be stopped.
