Greg Palast, an investigative reporter for the BBC and the Observer (sister paper of the Guardian), is well-known among BuzzFlash readers for his expose on how Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris disenfranchised black voters in Florida.
Based in London (because tenacious investigative reporters are not valued in the U.S. media, he says) Greg is thorough, cynical and fearless. In March, BuzzFlash.com will be featuring Greg’s new investigative reporting book, “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.” Greg Palast takes no prisoners. Here’s Greg as quoted in news release by the Institute for Public Accuracy:
“The California blackouts are a simple case of greed run amok. The big winners in this monstrosity are Enron — the largest career contributor to George W. Bush — and other energy companies who have strangled the market. ‘Deregulation’ is a lie — it is simply moving regulation from democratic government agencies to an unelected circle of market manipulators.”
