Greg Palast on BP (Part II) listen06/16/10 Kate Bradshaw
WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:
Since the blowout at Deepwater Horizon, it has been revealed that the companies involved in the wellâ€™s operation had been less than diligent when it comes to safety regulation.
Investigative journalist Greg Palast has known this for some time. Palast investigated the Exxon Valdez disaster for a community of native Alaskans and found that BP had a hand in it. He wrote about his experience for http://buzzflash.com. WMNFâ€™s Kate Bradshaw recently spoke with Palast, who said that BP prefers to spend money on political influence over safety, and doesnâ€™t take kindly to whistle-bowing.
