September 20, 2013 – Hours 1 & 2
We broadcast of an evocative discussion that Marc moderated Tuesday night at the 2640 Space in Baltimore, on the commercialization of U.S. elections. The discussion was centered on the book Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America, and you hear from the book’s authors:
- John Nichols, Washington Correspondent for The Nation and Associate Editor of The Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin;
- and Robert McChesney, author of Digital Disconnect: How Capitalism is Turning the Internet Against Democracy and professor of Communications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
