Richard Trainor investigative jouranlist to promote new book at Harlow’s
Investigative journalist Richard Trainor will be promoting his new book, “Paradise Lost?: High-Speed Trains Get Waylaid, Shady Politicians get Billions and Taxpayers Get the Shaft!” at Harlow’s Wednesday.
The book opens with a sordid account of Trainor’s lifestyle and the pitfalls of being an investigative journalist.
That lifestyle included homelessness, a politician threatening to throw him off the Bay Bridge if he didn’t back off of a story, and being tossed in jail as he relentlessly pursued shady politicians and their scams.
