MONEY TALKS—THE INFLUENCE OF MONEY IN AMERICAN POLITICS
Bill Moyers' Journal
First, authors William Greider (Who Will Tell the People?) and Kevin Phillips (The Politics of Rich and Poor) analyze how money has polluted the process. Moyers illustrates their points with in-depth segments on President Clinton’s promises for reform. Next, Ellen Miller of the Center for Responsive Politics presents statistics on corporate contributions and explains that some companies hedge their bets by contributing to both political parties. Then a roundtable of organizers and activists discusses their efforts to clean up politics, what needs to be done, and whether reform can ever be enacted.
