41 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigative journalist Palast digs deep to unearth the ugly facts that few reporters working anywhere in the world today have the courage or ability to cover. From East Timor to Waco, he has exposed some of the most egregious cases of political corruption, corporate fraud, and financial manipulation in the US and abroad. This collection brings together some of Palast's most powerful writing of the past decade. Included here are his Washington Post exposé on Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris's stealing of the presidential election in Florida, and recent stories on George W. Bush's payoffs to corporate cronies, the payola behind Hillary Clinton, and the faux energy crisis. Also included in this volume are new and previously unpublished material, television transcripts, photographs, and letters.--From publisher description

Billionaires & ballot bandits : how to steal an election in 9 easy steps by Greg Palast( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A close presidential election in November could well come down to contested states or even districts--an election decided by vote theft? It could happen this year. Based on Greg Palast and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s investigative reporting for Rolling Stone and BBC television, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: Election Games 2012 might be the most important book published this year--one that could save the election._ Billionaires & Ballot Bandits names the filthy-rich sugar-daddies who are super-funding the Super-PACs of both parties--billionaires with nicknames like "The Ice Man," "The Vulture" and, of course, The Brothers Koch. Told with Palast's no-holds-barred, reporter-on-the-beat style, the facts as he lays them out are staggering. What emerges in Billionaires & Ballot Bandits is the never-before-told-story of the epic battle being fought behind the scenes between the old money banking sector that still supports Obama, and the new hedge fund billionaires like Paul Singer who not only support Romney but also are among his key economic advisors. Although it has not been reported, Obama has shown some backbone in standing up to the financial excesses of the men behind Romney. Billionaires & Ballot Bandits exposes the previously unreported details on how operatives plan to use the hundreds of millions in Super-PAC money pouring into this election. We know the money is pouring in, but Palast shows us the convoluted ways the money will be used to suppress your vote. The story of the billionaires and why they want to buy an election is matched with the nine ways they can steal the election. His story of the sophisticated new trickery will pick up on Palast's giant New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy"--

Orwell rolls in his grave( Visual )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality. . .and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening." So wrote George Orwell in his novel "1984" a striking similarity to the current state of civic cluelessness. "1984" is no longer a date in the future. This documentary points out that today in America, media outlets are owned by five or six corporations, and the likes of Rupert Murdoch, GE, Sony, and the Disney Corporation are beholden to nothing but the bottom line. The seeming multiplicity of choices belies the actual concentration and vertical integration of the media in the hands of a few super-rich individuals. This film avers that a media monopoly is fatal to a democratic society, and raises several questions about this state of affairs: How is news reporting affected? How much influence do media lobbyists have over federal communication policies? Most frighteningly, do the corporate media reflect public opinion or create it?
