    Moyers & Company [#137H] Elections for Sale One of the reasons Moyers & Company frequently returns to the theme of money and politics is because it's absolutely necessary to do so. Nothing corrupts our political system more than the ability of the rich and influential to spend limitless amounts of money - often in secret - with the intention of creating preferred political outcomes. And far from being a regulator of campaign finances, our political funding laws - aided by a corporate-friendly Supreme Court and self-interested politicians - only facilitate the process of empowering the few while subjugating the many.
    Few understand the ways money moves in and out of our political system than campaign finance reform advocate Trevor Potter. A former chairman of the Federal Election Commission and founding president of the Campaign Legal Center, Potter was Stephen Colbert's chief advisor when Colbert formed his own super PAC and 501 (c)(4) in a clever effort to expose the potential for chicanery behind each.
    This week, Bill and Potter discuss how American elections are bought and sold, who covers the cost, and how the rest of us pay the price. "I can assure you that if someone is spending millions of dollars to elect the candidate, the candidate knows where that money is coming from. There's nothing illegal about telling them, but the voters aren't going to know that," Potter tells Bill. "We're creating opportunities for corruption and candidates being beholden to specific private interests because of funding, yet there's no disclosure to the rest of us."
    Also on the show, a Bill Moyers Essay on the bags of money that campaigns drop on consultants and TV ads to affect and distort your point of view.

Gordon agrees, but cannot find his glasses. Gordon suggests to Telly that he tries to read the book himself, but Telly says it's too long. Instead he goes to get help, and brings back the three little kittens from the nursery rhyme, since they know all about losing stuff. They find their mittens in Gordon's briefcase, but Gordon's glasses are still nowhere to be found. Gordon again suggests to Telly that he should try to read by himself, but Telly takes one look at the book and says it's too hard. Instead he brings back Little Bo Peep to help, since she is also always losing things. One of her sheep shows up with glasses and gives them to Gordon, but they are sunglasses. Again, Gordon tells Telly to give the book a try, and again, Telly has a better idea and runs off to get Schnozola, the glass-sniffing dog. But that's doesn't work either. Telly finally admits that he doesn't want to read the book by himself because it means not reading it together with Gordon. Gordon tells him they can still do that - by Telly reading the book to him, taking one word at a time. Just as they begin, Chris finds Gordon's glasses, but Telly tells Gordon that he kind of likes reading to him, so they keep doing just that. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
