Last week, we recognized Amy Goodman, host and executive producer of “Democracy Now!”, the only news outlet to broadcast live continuously from the prison grounds on the night of the execution of Troy Davis. Her broadcast made more information available to the world in real time than any other news source that night, and her poise and clear-headedness throughout the ordeal brought needed comfort to a distraught audience. Honorable mentions last week included Egyptian blogger Mohamed Abdelfattah and Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.
