Summary:This program examines the effect money has on free speech and political debate. In our society large corporations are increasingly able to drown out opposition by buying large amounts of air time, while their opponents are silenced by their lack of money. The program also investigates the consequences for our democracy as media outlets are increasingly coming under control of only a few corporations.
The program is produced by Public Affairs Television, Inc. with Okapi Productions, LLC."--Container.
