Money Matters (Episode #262H)

KQED 9: Fri, Nov 16, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

The election was more than a week ago, but the debate continues about the extraordinary amount of money spent during the campaign season, an estimated $6 billion. Of course, the huge increase in campaign spending follows the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling, the 5-4 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy which said restrictions on independent spending by corporations and unions to support candidates violated their constitutional guarantees of free speech. In his dissent Justice John Paul Stevens warned then that the ruling threatens to undermine the integrity of elected institutions across the nation. So has it? Will it? And are there other electoral reforms we should consider? That's our focus this week with panelists including Monica Youn, David Keating, Richard Brookhiser and Scott Murphy. Ray Suarez anchors.

Episode #260H

KQED 9: Fri, Nov 2, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

For months now, Americans have been bombarded with more political advertising than ever as the candidates try to convince voters that they understand and know what's best for the people who live and work in "Main Street" America.
This week, John Larson reports from Dubuque, Iowa - a town in a swing state worth six electoral votes in the road to the White House. Why Dubuque? It's not your average "Main Street" town. Dubuque's been called "Little Rome" because it boasts such a strong Catholic population, that the town is considered a barometer for the Catholic vote nationwide.

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
