Money and the Media Election Complex
Monday, September 16, 2013
Political journalist John Nichols describes how massive campaign spending has come to define our politics and challenges American democracy. His book Dollarocracy: How the Money and the Media Election Complex is Destroying America, which he co-authored with Robert W. McChesney, explains how our elections are becoming controlled and managed by consultants who wield millions of dollars and influence our politics as never before. He argues that after the Citizens United ruling, American citizens are in danger of becoming less informed and more open to manipulation.
