Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

It's just common names - but not common names for Republicans. James Brown, Jose Garcia, David Kim - these are common names, and what they have in common is they vote Democratic. If you're gonna remove people on the basis of a match of first name and last name - and that's it! - you're going to eliminate voters of color.

Investigative journalist Greg Palast reports on Crosscheck, the GOP's massive and extremely successful voter suppression apparatus - able to disenfranchise minorities for the simple crime of having first and last names, and previews the next stages of Kris Kobach's sophisticated revamp of Jim Crow era repression.

Greg's latest report is Sanders and Jackson join hands to take on Trump’s Vote Thief-in-Chief at his website, and his documentary on voter suppression, which was right all along, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, is available on his website.
