2:30 pm: Greg Palast - The Best Democracy Money Can Buy
Greg Palast is an investigative reporter for the BBC and Rolling Stone. His critical investigations into voter disenfranchisement demonstrate a deeply flawed American democracy, one that must be fixed in order to correct the many obstacles our society faces.
"Eliminate a few million voters of color and you've got your tax break, you've got your pipeline, and you've got nothing between you and your next billion." This warning, issued by Greg Palast, is one that we could all stand to learn from. Tracing the money through pipelines to politicians, Palast's colorful narrative documentary "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires and Ballot Bandits" paints a stark picture about just how manipulated American democracy has become.
