Greg Palast is a New York Times bestselling author and an investigative journalist for the BBC and the British newspaper The Guardian. Like Michael Moore, he is also a documentary filmmaker. His reports can be seen on BBC Television Newsnight. He is the author of New York Times bestsellers, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits and Armed Bandits as well as The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
His work is funny, heartbreaking, and loaded with facts like hand grenades,
British writer and filmmaker John Pilger
"Palast is astonishing, he gets the real evidence no one else has the guts to dig up."
Vincent Bugliosi, author of None Dare Call it Treason and Helter Skelter
Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast digs deep to unearth the ugly facts that few reporters working anywhere in the world today have the courage or ability to cover. From East Timor to Waco, he has exposed some of the most egregious cases of political corruption, corporate fraud, and financial manipulation in the US and abroad. His uncanny investigative skills as well as his no-holds-barred style have made him an anathema among magnates on four continents and a living legend among his colleagues and his devoted readership.
Will Durst, who will open the show, is acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier satirists in America. The New York Times called him, "quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today." Currently he writes a nationally syndicated humor column and is a frequent contributor on CNN, MSNBC & Fox News. Award-winning investigative reporter Greg Palast is the number one enemy of Jim Crow in the 21st century. Palast made history when he broke the stealing of the 2000 presidential election by Bush 2, by illegally disenfranchising tens of thousands of Black voters in Florida. And Palast is back again in 2016 fighting the good fight, with a new major documentary, a new book, and major articles for Rolling Stone. For the last 25 weeks, Palast has teamed up with the KPFA Flashpoints crew to create an historic 30-part investigative series called the Elections Crimes Bulletin--which hasrepeatedly gone viral-- in which Palast does what he does best: unmasks the continuing and unrelenting Jim-Crow attempts to prevent Black, Brown, and poor people from exercising their constitutional right to vote.
