“The CBS logo isn’t an eyeball, it’s actually just a pimple on the rectum of Viacom Corporation.”

Hear Greg Palast live with This is Hell radio host Chuck Mertz. In this 90 minute head-to-head, Greg goes in-depth about some of his run-ins with American Mainstream Media, stories about “getting the story,” and the true value of unbiased investigative journalism.

“Talk about hell: I trained with Fox TV News for 2 days… They asked me, ‘So what do I think? and I said, ‘I think I’m leaving the country.’ So I went to England to work for BBC.”

Hear it here: full frontal Palast, raw.

Heart of Coal by Greg Palast (2005)

from Armed Madhouse

We’ve seen this dreadful movie before. In 2005, another coal mine in West Virginia imploded. We wrote about it then ….

War is hell, especially class war. Just ask the Sago mine workers. Billionaire Wilbur Ross purchased Sago of West Virginia in November 2005 through International Coal Group.

In the first six weeks under Ross’ company’s ownership, the Sago mine suffered two roof collapses. Ross said that, “We were comfortable, based on the assurances from our management that they felt that it was a safe situation.” Safe financially, maybe, but a third roof collapse in January 2006 caused twelve miners to suffocate.

Wilbur Ross – the man Fortune Magazine dubbed “a revered vulture investor” – has a heart. In light of the tragedy, Ross has asked Americans to donate to victims’ families. I don’t know, however, if you should send your money to his home in Palm Beach, or the one in the Hamptons or the one on Fifth Avenue.
