  •  The issue is that (2.00)
    neither Palast nor Harris have proven themselves to be honest. Both simply make things up. Why would we entrust them to find the truth?

    Palast's articles contain dozens of factual errors, and the ones he gets right are usually ripped off from daily news reporters (who he turns around and villifies in his pieces).

    Same deal with Harris. She claims to have this huge pile of "evidence" that the elections were rigged. NONE of what she has released to date has stood up to scrutiny. She claims she has more but ... where is it?

    This faith in things unseen rivals the worst of the Christian Coalition ...

    •  Chill Out (2.25)
      Cut this CRAP off. Your anger is better serving our cause by focusing it at the real bad people we are fighting.
      Niether Palast or Harris, is being "dishonest" they are grasping at straws and hoping for gold. But that is not the point. In a political fight things move very fast and complete checking does not always keep up with the news cycles. If you miss a cycle your story disappears. So while you are doing all of your fact checking everything has been settled and no matter what evidence you come up with the headlines have moved on to some star's broken finger.
    •  Tons of factual errors? (3.50)
      Did you read Palast's, "The Best Democracy Money Could Buy"?  The book is downright tedious because he supports nearly every sentence with proof.  That book turned me on my head and got me activated.  I bought $300 worth of it (and I'm not rich) and distributed as my patriotic duty.

      I realize a lot of people don't like his cavalier writing style, I think he's trying to make dry material funny, but I really don't get where people say anything is not factual.  Please show me one fact that you allege is wrong.  I honestly want to see it since I bought so many copies of it.  Also, I can't see where he's kissing anyone in one instance and stabbing them in another.

      About Bev Harris. Are you kidding?  She has already revealed so much that I can't fit it in this tiny box.  Do a little homework, and you'll find out why she's a true hero.  Perhaps watch the video posted on the website, a website, by the way, that does look goofy.  I think that more than anything else hurts her credibillity. She ain't no graphic designer.

      •  About the video (none)
        I mean watch the video as the first step, then read her book that's she's posted on her site, or read how she just discovered many states failed to have their election properly software certfied.

        •  I'm on that video (none)
          At least that's what I hear.  I haven't had time to view it.

          Snapfinger Woods Elementary, July 20th, DeKalb County, Georgia, pollwatchers for Cynthia McKinney.  Yep, that would be me.

          Since I haven't seen the film, I will only say that if it infers that Bev Harris had anything to do with the episode, it would be a complete lie.

          •  It doesn't say that (none)
            She's a reporter--not an omnipresent activist at the forefront of every skirmish imperiling democracy.
