In over 35 years as an American journalist, Juan Gonzalez has done more than leave his mark -- he has played a pivotal and crucial role in changing the face of American journalism.
As co-host of the award-winning Democracy Now!, he and his team proved that not only is it possible to create a national news program that is independent of corporate and power structures, but that millions of Americans will like it and watch it.
He joined New America Now Host Shirin Sadeghi to discuss his new book with co-author Joe Torres of the Washington-based Free Press, called News for All the People: The Epic Story of Race and the American Media.
