The White House doesn’t like him much (“we hate that sonovabitch”) but the San Francisco Bay Area loves him – for his exposés on the Bush administration’s ties to the Bin Laden family of Saudi Arabia, his investigations of Enron, Arnold, and the California energy crisis, and his best-selling book about the 2000 presidential elections, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. Palast will speak at King Middle School, 1781 Rose Street, in Berkeley at a benefit for Media Alliance, a 28-year-old San Francisco-based media advocacy organization. His talk is entitled “Elections and the Media: From Florida to California and on to 2004.” The benefit starts at 7 PM. Tickets cost $10 and can be ordered from Media Alliance by phone at (415) 546-6334 ext. 300, online at http://www.media-alliance.org, or at the door. Advance purchase of tickets is recommended.
