"Dollarocracy" with John Nichols

Posted 3 months ago

John Nichols discussed issues raised by the new book co-authored with Bob McChesney, "Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America," at The Sanctuary for Independent Media on September 29th, 2013.

Their new book, published by Nation Books, describes how money spent on campaigns defines our country's politics and ultimately may trigger the end of democracy in America. The two were on a two-month tour, stopping in Troy, NY along with another 24 cities in America to speak about their newest text.

Blending vivid reports from the 2012 campaign trail and deep perspective from decades covering American and international media and politics, political journalist John Nichols and media critic Robert W. McChesney explain how the United States elections are becoming controlled, predictable enterprises that are managed by a new class of consultants who wield millions of dollars and define our politics as never before.
