News from “The Nation”

 

Investigative reporter Greg Palast, best known for uncovering the alleged fraud in Florida in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections, followed the footprints of corporations such as BP and Exxon all over the world and uncovered the intricate connections between power, energy and resources. His new book, Vultures’ Picnic, takes on corporate power in the energy industry.

In this video, he talks to The Nation‘s John Nichols about his book and how investigative reporting is suppressed by corporate media and conservative legislation.
