From the film commercially released this week based on the investigation for Democracy Now! – the story you won't get on CNN:
“They don't want no poor niggers back in – that's the bottom line.”
“By midnight the White House knew – but the state police didn't know.”
“Stop that camera, we've called security.”
“This is criminal negligence for which people go to jail.”
“It is a prison set-up. I've never been to the bottom
of the barrel until I came here.”
From the film, Big Easy to Big Empty: The Untold Story of the Drowning of New Orleans, an investigation by Greg Palast for Democracy Now! Re-released this week in DVD including exclusive interviews by Palast and Amy Goodman of heroes and villains – the deep horror, the dark humor and the no-bullshit truth you won't get on CNN.
