The New Palast Investigations

The New Palast Investigations

Ain't too proud to beg: The Palast investigative team is aiming to film and report four stories that will make the ruling regime deeply unhappy...

1. The untold story of the New Orleans flood.

2. Shoplifting your vote: November 2006 fix.

3. The next oil war.

4. [Confidential.]

Our problem is straightforward. We're out of funds. Dead out. All gone. In the red. Maybe we can sell our several journalism awards or return the beer bottles in the back office. Still not enough.

If you think this type of under-the-headlines investigation is important, donate at least $125 (tax deductible) to our not-for-profit foundation, the Palast Investigative Fund, and I'll send you, in appreciation, a signed copy of the audio version of Armed Madhouse, the New York Times bestseller.

We do old-fashioned investigative reporting: on the scene, under cover and research research research. While my reports have unique access to the world's most prestigious media outlets -- BBC Television, Harper's, The Guardian -- those good outlets and book royalties do not come close to covering our bills. Plus, we proudly present all our reports on Democracy Now! -- and wouldn't dream of asking Amy to pay.

Get the signed 5-CD audio version of my new book Armed Madhouse for $125

... or get a signed copy of the hardbound book of Armed Madhouse for $100

... or, become a Mini-Mogul:

Donate at least $250 to our foundation and get the Audio OR Book PLUS a gift pack -- and earn a credit at the end of our next broadcast as a co-producer!

You don't have to own a studio to see your name on the big screen. Be a miniature Murdoch who brings us the news instead of censoring it.

Hear a sample of Ed Asner, Jim Hightower, and Janeane Garofalo reading the audio book.

They are joined by Randi Rhodes, Amy Goodman, Mark Crispin Miller, Greg Proops, Jerry Quickley, Brod Bagert, Medea Benjamin of Code Pink, Randy Credico, Kevin Danaher, Larry David, Brad Friedman, Shiva Rose -- and Jello Biafra as the voice of Osama bin Laden.

Whether it's the audio book, the hardbound book or gift pack, you'll get 'ARMED MADHOUSE: Who's Afraid of Osama Wolf?, China Floats Bush Sinks, the Scheme to Steal '08, No Child's Behind Left and other Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Class War.'

"The story is like a spy thriller." (Robert Kennedy Jr., Air America.)

"A cross between Seymour Hersch and Jack Kerouac." (Buzzflash)

"Broke." (Our accountant.)

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support.

Greg Palast
New York
