Greg Palast NY Times bestselling author and award-winning investigative journalisthas spent the last thirty years getting the goods on the corporate con men, political hucksters, and "free-trade"
gurus who would auction off your children's future to the lowest bidder. Greg Palast Live from the Armed Madhouse, a follow-up to Weapon of Mass Instruction (Virus 312), is Palast's most provocative and caustically funny yet. Armed with over fifty classified documents, confidential memos, and secret plans liberated from the Pentagon, FBI, World Bank, and ExxonMobil, Palast cuts through the TV news baby-talk.
It was Palast, for BBC TV, who first uncovered how Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris stole Election 2000. Harris calls him "twisted," and here's the new twist revealed in this CD: Palast tells you that Kerry won in 2004 and 2008 is already fixed. Palast's reports have been exiled from America to British Broadcasting Corporation's top current affairs show, Newsnight, and England's Guardian newspapers. Author of the New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, Palast turned his skills to journalism after two decades as a top investigator of corporate fraud and racketeering. Awards bestowed on his work include: George Orwell Courage in Journalism, Patron of the Trinity College Philosophical Society, Guerrilla News Network's Guerrilla of the Year, and many more. This speech was recorded in 2006 at the Fletcher Lounge, University of Tampa.
