77. Palast's weekly e-mailing
Greg Palast, im my opinion, is one of the few real journalists in this country. He does a lot of work for the BBC, a reputable news organization if ever there was one. This is the text of his weekly e-mailing.......


Live nationwide on Pacifica radio and at
Jesse Jackson and Greg Palast

On Saturday, from 6pm-9pm EST, Rev. Jackson joins investigative
reporter Greg Palast to ask what happened to nearly a quarter million votes,
overwhelmingly from African-American precincts, not counted in Ohio.

For BBC Television, Palast uncovered the fake felon list that swiped
the election in 2000; this year, his report on BBC television broke the
story of the secret Republican "caging" lists that bent the November

The smell of Black ballots burning is hard to ignore. We need your
help to continue this investigation into the votes not counted in Ohio,
New Mexico and Florida. Behind the by-line "Greg Palast" in Harper's,
The Nation and the Guardian is an investigative team that is now running
perilously low on funding. While Greg Palast has donated 100% of his
royalties from his bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, to the
effort, we're still in the red.

We're asking you to keep this investigation going by making a $50
tax-deductible donation to the Palast Investigative Fund ... in return we'll
send you as a thank you, the blistering documentary, "Bush Family
Fortunes" on DVD, signed by reporter Palast. The film is taken from
Palast's award-winning investigate broadcasts for BBC Television - the story
of the Bush-Bin Laden connection, the shoplift of the vote in Florida,
the secret plans for "Operation Iraqi Liberation" and other reports that
you can't see on your Fox-ified TV. Donate at Donate before December 10 and
receive your signed DVD before Christmas via first class mail.

This is the film Jesse Jackson says, "You must see." That Senator John
Edwards calls "Important and disturbing." Katherine Harris says
Palast's reporting is, "Twisted and maniacal." Maybe that's why Noam Chomsky
says Palast, "Upsets all the right people."

Other gift choices in return for your tax-deductible donation, all
shipped within a week of donation via first class mail:

The Book: "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: New Special Election
Edition," (Penguin 2004) signed by the author, for a minimum $50 donation.

The Cards: "Joker's Wild: Dubya's Trick Deck" - Tarot-sized
four-color cards ... the illustrated satirical version of The Best Democracy
Money Can Buy, for a minimum donation of $25, signed by the author.

The Audio Book: The five CD set from Penguin books of "The Best
Democracy Money Can Buy" read by the author with Ed Asner, Alec Baldwin,
Jello Biafra, Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo, Amy Goodman, Jim Hightower,
Cynthia McKinney, Alexandra Paul and Shiva Rose -- for a minimum donation
of $100.00

The Whole Enchilada: For a minimum donation of $200, we'll send you a
signed copy of the Special Election Edition of the book plus a signed
copy of the cards, plus a signed copy of the 5-CD audio book, plus a
signed copy copy of the DVD, "Bush Family Fortunes."

We don't take corporate money. We don't have big funders. Our readers
keep us alive. Please donate now at
