Citizens United v. FEC: point and counterpoint
Although neither video meets the focus of this blog as "emerging multimedia" given their distribution last year, Annie Leonard's critique of the Supreme Court case that radically altered the financing of political campaigns, and perhaps the very nature of democracy, continues to resonate in this election year (top video). To provide a semblance of balance, her video is followed by a critique of the critique which supports the court decision. You be the judge: determine which argument, if either, makes the most sense.
