David Goodman is an award-winning independent journalist and co-author of seven books with his sister, Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now! Their New York Times bestsellers, Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times; Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders, and the People Who Fight Back and The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media That Love Them have seen worldwide success and been translated into more than a dozen languages.
He is also author of the critically acclaimed Fault Lines: Journeys into the New South Africa, a staple text in many college classes that Archbishop Desmond Tutu hailed as "a searingly honest book by someone who really knows his subject."
Goodman is a contributing writer for Mother Jones. He has reported from Sudan, Liberia, and elsewhere throughout Africa on war, AIDS and the plight of women and children. He traveled secretly inside apartheid South Africa during the 1980s and 90s, and later covered Nelson Mandela and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and wrote an eyewitness chronicle of South Africa's transformative journey from apartheid to democracy.
In the US, he has investigated and reported extensively on the role of the military in schools. He broke the first national story about a little-known provision of the No Child Left Behind Act that has secretly transformed America's high schools into a pipeline to military recruiting centers, and wrote the first major magazine cover story on war resisters within the military.
Goodman's articles have appeared in The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Outside, Christian Science Monitor, Boston Globe, The Nation, and numerous other publications. He has been a frequent guest on national radio and television shows, including PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Democracy Now!, NPR's “Fresh Air,” “Morning Edition,” “Talk of the Nation,” CSPAN's BookTV and Washington Edition, Pacifica Radio and CNN. His reporting is included in the American Empire Project book, In the Name of Democracy and No Easy Victories: African Liberation and American Activists over a Half Century, 1950-2000.
