KYRS is hosting Amy Goodman on Oct. 27, 7 p.m., at Spokane Falls Community College!
Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist, syndicated columnist, author and the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, an independent, global weekday news hour broadcast in English and Spanish on more than 1,000 public television, radio and Internet stations around the world. Amy Goodman is the author of four New York Times bestsellers.
Democracy Now! is on the road for a 2-month, 100-city tour, starting at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, appearing at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, and running up to Election Day. Democracy Now! is holding public events to help raise critical funds for the public broadcasters that carry them. The tour route covers many of the electoral swing states, going beyond the mainstream media’s obsessive focus on the latest poll numbers and candidate gaffes, to see on the ground how people are organizing, the impacts of restrictive voter ID laws that are making it harder to vote, and how the massive influx of campaign cash following the Citizens United decision is changing how our democracy works.
