The "Muckracker" Speaks

Exclusive interview with investigative journalist/author Greg Palast

| April 2004 Issue

Called "the greatest investigative reporter of our time" Greg Palast has single-handedly exposed some of the juiciest recent public scandals: Bush undercutting the FBI's investigation of Saudi Arabia's financing of terrorist organizations; the Republicans stealing the election in Florida; Enron swindling its way into an energy monopoly.

Palast took up journalism because, as he says, "no one in the [American] media could get the story right." The American, now living in London, reports for the BBC and the Guardian. Earlier this week Penguin released the Expanded Election Edition of Palast's New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy as he kicks off an eight-city tour to promote the book.
