GREG PALAST’s undercover reports appear regularly on BBC Television’s Newsnight, Harper’s Magazine, and Pacifica’s Democracy Now!, carried on more than 350 stations. Winner of a record six Project Censored Awards for his investigations, Palast, formerly a columnist for Britain’s prestigious Guardian, produced and starred in the hit BBC documentary Bush Family Fortunes (music by Moby). Though known for his Sam Spade–style television reports complete with trench coat and fedora, Palast has another side—as “America’s leading expert on government regulation” (Guardian) and author of the academic bestseller Democracy and Regulation, who has lectured at Oxford and Cambridge University and the London School of Economics.
He was named 2004 Fellow of the Philosophical Society of Trinity College, whose previous honorees include Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde; was recipient of the ACLU’s Freedom of Expression Award; and was inducted into the Non-Whore Journalists Hall of Fame.
