Journalism: Greg Palast - Talking about elections

Greg Palast is one of those investigative reporters that really seems to get into the scary stuff. He is an American but he works for the BBC because none of the American media will run his stories, even when they have sharing agreements with the BBC and they could do it for free. Greg is the first person that I heard use the term "Electronic Berlin Wall" to describe the American Media's control over the information that gets to the people. I couldn't agree more. He recently placed his latest book Armed Madhouse into a creative commons copyright status which basically means public domain.

This is part 1 and 2 of a series on YouTube where he is at a speaking engagement with Robert Kennedy Jr. Greg does a lot of independent internet video outside the BBC. He also writes a lot of text articles. It's worth scanning around to see what Greg has to say about things.
