Hunting Vultures of All Stripes: Greg Palast Investigates

By Amy Brachmann
Investigative journalist Greg Palast recently released a documentary – On the Trail: From 8-Mile to the Amazon – collecting three of his BBC films, which detail financial exploitation of the world’s poor, the human cost of Amazon oil production, and the impact of voting fraud during the 2008 election on Native Americans in New Mexico.

The new DVD features Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Mike Papantonio, as well as music from Willie Nelson and Chris Shiflett. Here’s the trailer:



Palast has written multiple New York Times' bestsellers and made a name for himself covering corporate wrongdoing, labor unions, consumer advocacy groups and voter fraud. He runs a nonprofit investigative team devoted to progressive journalism and independent media.

He also serves on the advisory board of "Between the Lines," a radio public affairs show based in Bridgeport, Conn. The weekly “radio newsmagazine” focuses on progressive news and under-reported stories, with the goal of providing its audience with the information and means to take action on issues.

If you're feeling flush, make a (tax-deductible) donation of at least $40 here, and you'll get an autographed copy of the DVD. All funds will be split between the Palast Investigative Fund and "Between the Lines."

Of course, don't forget about us.
