Democracy Now! Co-Host Juan Gonzalez
April 20, 2012 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
Two-time Polk Award-winning New York Daily News columnist and Democracy Now! co-host Juan Gonzalez has emerged as one of the country’s best-known and most-respected Latino journalists during a turbulent career spanning more than 35 years.
Even before he entered journalism, Gonzalez distinguished himself as a leader of the Young Lords, a militant civil rights organization of the late 1960s, and of the National Congress for Puerto Rican Rights in the 1970s. The author of four books, his most recent is News for All the People: The Epic Story of Race and the American Media. His recent reporting on the fatal shooting of a retired Marine in White Plains cracked a tightly kept secret, revealing for the first time that the man who pulled the trigger is one of six cops accused in a federal police brutality case stemming from an incident in 2008.
