Commentator
    (April 13, 1957- )
    Born in Bay Shore, New York
    Progressive journalist, columnist, investigative reporter, and author
    Host of the television/radio talk show 'Democracy Now!'
    She has a monotone voice.
    Bill Clinton called her 'combative and hostile' when she and and WBAI's Gonzalo Aburto challenged him for 28 minutes with questions about domestic and foreign issues during a 2000 election day episode of 'Democracy Now!'
    She was arrested while reporting on protests held outside the 2008 Republican National Convention in Saint Paul, Minnesota, accused of obstructing a legal process and interfering with a police officer.
    In 2010, she was detained for approximately 90 minutes at the Douglas border crossing into Canada while en route to a scheduled meeting at the Vancouver Public Library.
    She was eventually permitted to enter Canada after the customs authorities took four photographs of her and stapled a 'control document' into her passport demanding that she leave Canada within 48 hours.
    She said that she is not a sports fan in light of the charges that her entry into Canada was regarding questioning of Vancouver's ability to host The Olympic Games.
    Many right wing pundits and commentators accuse her of a liberal bias.
    She graduated from Radcliffe College in 1984 with a degree in anthropology.
    Her radio program has been hailed as 'the most significant progressive news institution that has come around in some time.'
    She credits the program's success to the mainstream media organizations who leave a 'huge niche' for 'Democracy Now!'
    While covering the East Timor independence movement in 1991, she and a fellow journalist were badly beaten by Indonesian soldiers after witnessing a mass killing of Timorese demonstrators in what is infamously now known as the Santa Cruz Massacre.
    Her documentary 'Drilling and Killing: Chevron and Nigeria's Oil Dictatorship' won the George Polk Award in 1998.
    She has received dozens of accolades and awards for her work.
    She is the Nikki Finke of investigative journalism.
