"Of course, you can't separate New Orleans and voting, Iraq and voting, the war on terror and voting -- it's all the same crew playing the same games. And there's not only votes being lost, but blood being spilled. " - Greg Palast

Doylestown, PA: Greg Palast is outspoken, dedicated to investigative reporting and completely shut out by the American corporate media. Don't miss the Voice of the Voters this Wednesday, May 23 at 8PM ET to hear Palast discuss what he thinks are the leading problems with US elections and what the possible impact of those problems will be on the 2008 presidential elections. And where does the US prosecutor purge scandal fit into all of it?

"It's not the computer voting machines. Yes, they're evil. They are wrong, they are manipulative, they are hack-prone, and they stole the election through computers in Sarasota and elsewhere in the last election. ... So, yes, they are a problem. But if you think that's it, baby, they've got you. " - Greg Palast

As always, John Gideon, Executive Director of Voters Unite will give Voice of the Voters listeners a round-up of all the week's voting news.


Voice of the Voters is an hour devoted to voting rights, election reform and voter-verified paper ballots. Ultimately it is an exploration of Representative Democracy itself and the responsibilities of citizens and their elected representatives. It airs every Wednesday night at 8:00 PM ET on 1360 AM and on the Internet. (http://wnjc.duxpond.com/)

Guest Bio:

When Greg Palast, an investigator of corporate fraud and racketeering, turned his skills to journalism he was quickly recognized as "the most important investigative reporter of our time" (Tribune Magazine) in Britain, where his first reports appeared on BBC Television and in the Guardian newspapers.

Author of two New York Times bestsellers, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy and Armed Madhouse, Palast is best known in his native USA as the journalist who, for the UK's Observer, first broke the story of how Governor Jeb Bush had thousands of black Florida citizens purged from voter rolls before the 2000 election, thereby handing the White House to his brother George W. His reports on the theft of election 2004, the spiking of the FBI investigations of the bin Ladens before September 11, and the secret State Department documents planning the seizure of Iraq's oil fields have won him a record seven "Project Censored" awards for reporting news the American media refuses to cover. "The top investigative journalist in the United State is persona non grata in his own country's media." [Asia Times]

In 1998, for Britain's Observer, he went undercover, worked his way inside the prime minister's inner circle and busted open Tony Blair's biggest scandal, "Lobbygate," chosen by Palast's press colleagues in the UK as "Story of the Year."

Palast has returned to America to report for Harper's Magazine. His Sam Spade-style television exposés about election manipulations, the War on Terror and globalization are frequently seen on BBC's Newsnight and Amy Goodman's Democracy Now!

Palast, Guerrilla News Network's "Guerrilla of the Year," is Patron of the Trinity College Philosophical Society, an honor previously held by Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde. He has also been awarded the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Freedom of Expression Award and his writings have won the Financial Times' David Thomas Prize while inspiring the Eminem video Mosh. In the BBC documentary Bush Family Fortunes, Palast exposed George Bush Jr.'s dodging the Vietnam War draft and won the George Orwell Courage in Journalism Award.

Beginning in the 1970s in Chicago, having earned his degree in finance studying under Milton Friedman and free-trade luminaries, Palast went on to challenge their vision of a New Global Order, working for the United Steelworkers of America, the Enron workers' coalition in Latin America, and consumer and environmental groups worldwide. As an investigator for the Chugach Natives of Alaska, he uncovered the oil company frauds that led to the grounding of the Exxon Valdez. His racketeering probe of a nuclear plant operator led to one of the largest jury judgments in US history.

"Palast, a tough-talking, fedora-wearing corporate fraud investigator turned intrepid journalist, has a habit for finding actual documents and then using them in edgy exposes." --Los Angeles Times
