Elections 2018 — The Progressive Path Forward: Money in Politics

The political process is increasingly rigged by corporations and the billionaires who control them, as a result of the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision that opened the floodgates to unlimited and secretive donations to political campaigns. Are corporations really people? Is money the same as free speech? This hour discusses tactics, strategies and possible solutions on local, state, and national levels to the plague of “Dark Money” in politics.

Best-selling author and top-ranked progressive talk radio host, Thom Hartmann, hosts this episode. Produced by Globalvision and taped at the MNN El Barrio Firehouse Community Media Center in East Harlem, this episode is a co-production of Free Speech TV and Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
