WaPo’s Matea Gold on the role of money in politics

Listen 00:48:44

Guest: Matea Gold

Marty talks with The Washington Post national political reporter MATEA GOLD about the role money plays in politics. They’ll discuss the effect the historic “Citizens United” Supreme Court decision is having on the way we experience political campaigns and the activities of heavyweight donors, from George Soros on the left to Charles Koch on the right. And Gold will describe her recent reporting into how both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are helping the national parties get back in the big money business, as well as the role that super PACs are playing in the 2016 elections.
