I saw a documentary called ‘American Blackout’ that totally intrigued me and got me interested in Googling the moviemaker – Greg Palast. I am now addicted to his website and reading/seeing everything he writes and makes.
Here’s a bit on him from Wiki :
“Greg Palast’ is a New York Times-bestselling author and a journalist for the British Broadcasting Corporation as well as the British newspaper TheObserver . His work frequently focuses on corporate malfeasance but has also been known to work with labor unions and consumer advocacy groups. Notably, he has claimed to have uncovered evidence that Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, and Florida Elections Unit Chief Clay Roberts, along with the ChoicePoint corporation, rigged the ballots during the US Presidential Election of 2000 and again in 2004 when, he argued, the problems and machinations from 2000 continued, and that challenger John Kerry actually would have won if not for disproportional “spoilage” of Democratic votes. He is considered to have begun reporting for the BBC/Observer due to media bias/reporting restrictions in the US.”
