Greg Palast: Slick Oil

Investigative Journalist, Greg Palast, (they don't make reporters like him anymore)reports on the aftermath of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Twenty years later, the people living in the area who had their livelihoods destroyed by the oil spill do not just justice when the court reduces compensation to 10% of the original amount. This is an example of the corporatocracy run amuck, fouling up the environment, and destroying livelihoods, with impunity.

Our Supreme Court favors the corporations even though it broke equipment readiness agreements. The media reports lies about the ship driver being drunk so that it can be blamed on human error rather than company negligence.

Greg Palast has covered many other stories, which I shall provide in future blog entries.
