I suspect that the American people are catching on to the writings of Greg Palast—particularly his work on the coup of 2000 involving the racist purge by Jeb and Katherine of tens of thousands of eligible voters who were labeled convicted felons but whose only crime was to be black and Democratic. When I checked my Sitemeter stats in the last few weeks, I noticed that many people came to this site from Google searches with the words “Greg Palast” and words like “lies” “liar” “debunked” “insane” “discredited” and other pejoratives. The people who came to this site to find dirt on Palast or his book left disappointed because Palast is the real deal (anyone who wants to read about discredited authors should click here). Palast, working for the BBC, did what the American media didn’t have the guts or the tenacity to do: he ignored the spin and committed journalism—such his as confronting Florida elections official Clay Roberts with the information he had on the purge—Roberts left the interview abruptly. The paperback edition of Palast’s book The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: The Truth About Corporate Cons, Globalization and High-Finance Fraudsters is doing well on Amazon.com. Buy it.
