Greg Palast in partnership with former Air America and Pacifica producer Cary Harrison created this video called “Reality Checkr” for Pirate TV. It tells the story of Jevin LeMar, a young rapper now starting to gain industry recognition who came up in Dayton, Ohio, one of the poorest jurisdictions in the country. Two of LeMar’s cousins were recently killed in a mass shooting.

After the interview with LaMar, the video goes to Greg Palast who fills in the wider story relating to Jevin’s life in Dayton, vote suppression in Ohio, and brings us up to date with the latest in Greg’s ongoing investigation of vote rigging in the US.

Greg Palast is a Puffin Foundation fellow in investigative reporting who was a reporter for BBC Newsnight for 20 years. He now writes for the Rolling Stone and the Guardian USA.
