Few people realize the control corporations and special interests have over the United States. Their influence on our government allows them to shape our society and our daily lives in ways that further only their interests, not the interests of the citizens our government was designed to serve.
It is distressing that this influence wielded by corporations and special interests faces so little scrutiny. The only way to combat their hidden control is for journalists to shine a bright light on where your interests are being undermined – and help citizens understand how to fight back.
