Wendell Potter and Nick Penniman - Nation on the Take: How Big Money Corrupts Our Democracy and What We Can Do About It

Saturday, March 5, 2016 at 1:00 pm

The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision only crystallized the inordinate role fundraising has come to play in the political process. In their thorough investigation of how money has changed the character of politics, Potter, award-winning author of Deadly Spin, senior analyst at the Center for Public Integrity, and senior fellow on health care at the Center for Media and Democracy and Penniman, former Washington Monthly publisher, past director of the Huffington Post investigative fund, and current executive director of Issue One, detail how the shift of focus from issues to donors’ interests has stymied action on climate change, health care, and much more; further, they offer suggestions for how citizens can make themselves be heard.
