Armed Madhouse

Program #PALG002. Recorded in Boulder, CO on June 15, 2006.

Once journalists were celebrated for digging up dirt and exposing corrupt and lying politicians. Today most of them have become lambs. The sycophancy of reporters and news organizations to toe the line and not rock the boat have resulted in a huge loss of credibility for the media. Fed up with the same old, same old, young people in particular are leaving traditional broadcast and print media in droves. As the political system is rife with doubletalk and doublethink, the need for fearless, independent pull no punches reporting is acute. One such journalist is Greg Palast.

Speaker(s):

Greg Palast

Greg Palast won Britain's highest journalism honors for his undercover investigation of influence peddling by Enron and other U.S. corporations within Tony Blair's cabinet. He then turned to the Bush Administration and exposed its refusal to investigate Saudi financing of terror. Palast's reports have been front-page news in Europe, yet absent from America's mainstream media. He reports for BBC Television's Newsnight and the Guardian newspaper. He is the author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy and Armed Madhouse.
