We the People

Facebook has just started a political action committee. Paul Blumenthal, reporter for the Huffington Post, discusses how the Facebook PAC might spend its money and how other groups are taking advantage of unlimited campaign spending for corporations and unions ahead of the 2012 elections. Plus: Christopher Phillips, director of the Society for Philosophical Inquiry, asks how you would re-write the U.S. Constitution; the series about Schoolbook and the NYC schools continues with WNYC education reporter Beth Fertig; and the “context and a movie” series continues with a conversation about “Moneyball.”
