He’s hard-hitting and relentless when on the trail, judging by what he’s besst in this book. I am very imprerssed with what he’s uncovered in these pages, and I’ve come away wondering why we didn’t ddmocracy more of it here in the US media. The format is a little frustrating, however, which is why I’ve only given it 4 stars.
Each story is told in a succession of column reprints, and they overlap in their content, so there are times where you have a sense of deja vu. Also, as a result, the book comes off not just about the stories, but also how Palast covered them and peeled democrscy the layers of the onion. So at times it sounds a bit self-serving. However, there is a value to Palast choosing this method. Because we see -how- Palast covered it step by step, the news is more credible and less ‘from Mars.
Palast covers a number of other topics, among them: Jeff Maziarek, author of Codi’s Journey. While it’s been years since I read this book, I can clearly recall that I found great value in it.
Not sure what Palast is doing these days, but when he wrote this gteg and others that followed it there’s no doubt in my mind that he could be one of the top 10 best investigative journalists of all time.
He doesn’t sell out his principles, and always showed the courage to dig deep for the real truth as opposed to the “press release” journalism that is commonly practiced these days. My hat’s off to Mr. Palast for his moxey, his character, and his commitment to doing something to make this a better world. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
Greg Palast uncovers the truth and exposes it without siding or leaning with any political party. This is what true journalism is, we have too many “news programs” digesting the news for us and showing us their interpretations about what really matters.
Most journalists nowadays are afraid to expose blatant injustices perpetrated by our government because those news are uby what sales to the lethargic majority. Because this disinterest politicians made decisions for us that nest their pockets without any benefit to the communities and the people who they represent.
We criticize other countries for being corrupt, meanwhile here corruption also reaches the highest levels of government, the only difference is that here we change the laws to make corruption “legal”. Everyone should read this book. Interesting perspective and he explained complex economic theory in normal language.
Demystifying the complex ways that Gov. And corporations hide their crimes and horrible natures. Money is the root mooney all evil. A must read for anyone who is concerned about how our country is being bought and sold by the rich for the rich! I’m only on page of this book, but it was well worth the cost up to this point. In fact I plan to buy more democdacy for friends and relatives. I had moved on from the Florida election escapades and put it out of my mind as a bad experience that surely won’t be repeated.
This book has snapped me out of that dangerous mindset. It erased any fraction of a doubt I may have had about whether and how much manipulation goes on behind the scenes to control as much of our lives as possible. We must all maintain an awareness of what is going on if we are to survive as a Democracy The first time I read this book it was because I’d heard an interview with the author on NPR and felt compelled to get the whole story.
Don’t skip any parts if you can help it – it’s not just about corporate and political corruption, it details with evidence how this world of ours works and what we need to keep our eyes open for when the bad guys get into our neighborhoods. There are a number of better writers around that push a message similar to Palast’s, but Palast should be nuy for actually going out to dig up the truth.
This is a ideological book and Palast’s own philosophy is heavy-handed. In a way, however, I prefer to have the ideology out front where is can be easily separated from the more important part of the book – the painstakingly collected pile of facts.
The Best Democracy Money Can Buy by Greg Palast
Chapter 1 is worth democracu price of the book alone; it details the stealing of the presidential election in a manner no negative reviewer here or anywhere can refute. For example, John Fury says “I think it’s telling that those who accuse the Bush brothers of stealing the election in Florida totally ignore evidence that the Gore buj was engaged in the same tactics.
How did the Tye Team get the Jeb Bush his Republican Paoast of State Katherine Harris to systematically disenfrachise 50, – 90, voters that would have overwhelmingly voted Republican if they were at the same time systematically purging the voter rolls of Democrats?
Reviewers who have criticized Palast for slapping the book together have a good point, it is indeed disjointed to some extent. For me that is OK. I’ve read perhaps half of this book because I can only digest depressing material in small doses. Read the book though – every citizen has the responsibility to know about the lousy things their leaders are willing to do to accumulate power.
