Florida 2000 vote theft film to appear on PBS!
From the Greg Palast newsletter
In the face of the controversial decision by the PBS network to refuse to transmit the investigative report, the nation’s top PBS stations will independently broadcast Counting On Democracy.
Directed by Emmy-award winner Danny Schechter, the 57-minute documentary follows BBC television reporter Greg Palast as he discovers how Katherine Harris removed up to 57,000 legal voters from registries – most black – five months before the 2000 election.
A second film on the scandal of the vote theft in Florida, Unprecedented, opens this month.
From their website:
Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election is the riveting story about the battle for the Presidency in Florida and the undermining of democracy in America. Filmmakers Richard Ray Pérez and Joan Sekler examine modern America’s most controversial political contest: the Election of George W. Bush.
What emerges is a disturbing picture of an election marred by suspicious irregularities, electoral injustices, and sinister voter purges in a state governed by the winning candidate’s brother. George W. Bush stole the presidency of the United States – and got away with it.
