Tuesday, we continue our Through the Lens series with a film about the influence of corporate cash on our elections. Director Kimberly Reed’s documentary DARK MONEY follows an intrepid journalist fighting to expose the real-life impacts of the Citizens United ruling on Montana’s politics. The film also explores the value of a free press to a healthy democracy. Reed joins us to talk about her film, what’s wrong with our campaign finance system, and what can be done to fix it.
