Â â€¦not because youâ€™re for or against Bernie Sanders the candidate, but because you are against the trivial idiocy of boob-tube media that wonâ€™t give you real information about the candidates who would rule our nation.
As a journalist, I donâ€™t support candidates â€” but I do support the journalism of Ted Rall, a fellow of the Palast Investigative Fund, whose reports in graphic form are entertaining antidotes to news as chit-chat.
I need you to get the book now!Â Â Your brain will feel better for it.
Read my review.
Ted Rallâ€™s 200-page â€œcomic bookâ€ is reporting at its best â€” fascinating, factual, no bias, no BS.Â (And, no sin, itâ€™s fun.)
Most important, your tax-deductible donation for the signed Bernie book will support our investigation of the latest in vote theft shenanigans.
Todayâ€™s New York Timesâ€™ story on Sanders?Â A profile of the staffer who plays pretend-Hillary in preparing Sen. Sanders for the debates.Â How cute.Â How trivial.Â And thatâ€™s the â€˜Paper of Record,â€™ Lord help us.
But if you want those rare things called INFORMATION, INSIGHT, HARD-CORE HISTORY AND FULL-FRONTAL FACTS, youâ€™ll have to turn to the journalist with a 50-caliber pen:Â Ted Rall and his Bernie.
Tell you what:Â make a tax-deductible donation of $150 to our investigations fund and I’ll send you the Palast & Rall Book Trio, signed copies of Bernie, Snowden and my own collaboration with Ted Rall, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits, the smash bestseller.
So why am I, a journalist, asking, pleading, begging and demanding you donate to the Palast Investigative Fund today?Â Would I sound too crazy if I told you that Americaâ€™s democracy is on the line? ‘Tis.
This is no joke.Â I have just returned from deep investigation of some of the cruelest, most racistâ€”but horribly effectiveâ€”means of purging voters of color from the voter rolls in the two key swing states, Ohio and North Carolina. Â
With the Supreme Courtâ€™s gunning down the Voting Rights Act, right-wing Secretaries of States are hunting down minority voters.
Jim Crow has returned.Â But instead of white sheets, heâ€™s using spreadsheets.
You know that my reports have to sneak in to America through the back door:Â through BBC TV, through Democracy Now, through Rolling Stone and the â€˜net.Â Â Help me break the truth embargo.
I need to complete the series of TV news reports and print reports that will bust open the vote-theft story in the USA.
The capstone of our investigation is a film that is finally getting buzz within US media.Â We need to finish the filming, editing â€” and non-stop investigatingâ€” that our project, and our nationâ€™s democracy. requires.
Frankly, WHETHER BERNIE OR HILLARY OR HARRY POTTER ARE NOMINATED DONâ€™T MEANÂ A DAMN THING if the ballots are burglarized.
Will you help me expose the latest in ballot banditry?
If youâ€™re REALLY ready to stand with me, please PRODUCE THIS FILM.
