Load WordPress Sites in as fast as 37ms!

Scott talks to Greg Palast about Venezuela, Deepwater Horizon, and the importance of whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning. Palast explains that most Venezuelans still basically support President Maduro, and that the prospect of Guaidó—a wealthy white guy—ruling reminds them of the apartheid of their past. He also laments that prominent journalists at the New York Times and elsewhere, who have won awards thanks to Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning, happily go along with their arrests as though the government will never come for them.

Discussed on the show:

Investigative reporter Greg Palast covered Venezuela for BBC Television and The Guardian during Hugo Chavez’s presidency. He is the author of several New York Times bestsellers including The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, now a movie available on Amazon Prime. A documentary of Palast’s work for BBC-TV, The Assassination of Hugo Chavez, is available as a free download at Palast’s site, GregPalast.com.
