Is Greg Palast an allowable source on DU?

I'm pretty new here and have seen some discussions on allowable and not allowable sources here on DU.

Asking for a friend.

1. Haven't seen him mentioned in a while, but he always was.

2. He is an outstanding journalist

 

and that can make some uncomfortable. But for the opposite reason Fox does. IMO.

5. I'm afraid of being banned. I don't know how consistently the rules and alerts work.

 

It seems to be rather arbitrary and subjective, imo.

4. He's a truth-teller,

and speaks that truth to power. That's why the US corporate media ignores him.

If you haven't read "Best Democracy Money Can Buy" and "Armed Madhouse", you should get them. They were real eye-openers.

6. Just my opinion - I don't think you will have a problem in most of DU with posting news/analysis

from Greg Palast.

But he might not qualify for Latest Breaking News whose rules call for,

"Post the latest news from reputable mainstream news websites and blogs."

But if you posted to LBN, the worst that would happen is that the LBN hosts would lock the thread, which doesn't count as a "post removed" (or the old terminology that is still around, a "hide" ). Or have any bad consequences that I have ever heard about.

7. I have posted articles by Greg Palast myself. He's long been a favorite of mine

It's right wing sources that are frowned upon here - unless, as Skinner once said, it's to debunk them.

9. Can't ignore arbitrary alerts.

 

Felt that I should ask first.

BTW, here's the Palast piece ...
