Greg Palast is a New York Times bestselling author and an investigative journalist for the BBC and the British newspaper The Guardian. Like Michael Moore, he is also a documentary filmmaker. His reports can be seen on BBC Television Newsnight. He is the author of New York Times' bestsellers, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits and Armed Bandits as well as The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast digs deep to unearth the ugly facts that few reporters working anywhere in the world today have the courage or ability to cover. From East Timor to Waco, he has exposed some of the most egregious cases of political corruption, corporate fraud, and financial manipulation in the US and abroad. His uncanny investigative skills as well as his no-holds-barred style have made him an anathema among magnates on four continents and a living legend among his colleagues and his devoted readership.
Will Durst, who will open the show, is acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier satirists in America. The New York Times called him, "quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today."
"For the last 25 weeks, Palast has teamed up with the KPFA Flashpoints crew to create the Elections Crimes Bulletin--which unmasks the continuing and unrelenting Jim-Crow attempts to prevent Black, Brown, and poor people from exercising their constitutional right to vote." - Dennis Bernstein, KPFA Flashpoints Executive Producer
