Money In Politics According To CNN (VIDEO)


Corruption, money in politics, extortion, "Pay-to-Play," are not phrases that are new to anyone who has navigated to this site.  In fact, the essence of the phrases is embedded in the business of politics world-wide. While Fox News and conservative media will only rarely foray int the shady business of money in politics, we are fortunate others do so and do so very thoroughly.  

One of our most cherished website is the Center for Responsive Politics  "Open Secrets" website.   Reading our pieces on money in politics and extensive pieces from Open Secrets takes time. 

Our credo is 'time equals value, if expended to feed the brain." Alas, we are information geeks and do not expect same from most reads.  

We have found out that CNN (diminished in our minds but clinging to vestiges of journalistic integrity) has announced the network will probe deep into money in politics throughout the year.  Yes, CNN has moved decidedly right in its business model, but can never move as far right as the number one cable news network: FOXPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network).  Why CNN will probe and track money in politics for the year, we have no idea.  We suspect the year as a mid-term election year is someplace in the genesis of the (periodic) series. 

The following is the first segment, aired last night on Anderson Cooper 360.  The segment is 9:17 minutes long, but it is a real get your popcorn and watch segment. 

And, yes we know money in politics spans political camps and is in fact as bi-partisan as money will allow. There seems to be plenty money to spread around

Let's see how the next few segments flow.  We suspect it will get even uglier.
