Your Call: Citizens United and Citizen Koch

On today’s Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week we’ll have a conversation with Tia Lessin and Carl Deal, directors of Citizen Koch, a documentary about money, power, and democracy. The film looks at how Citizens United drastically changed how the country’s elections are fought and paid for. The filmmakers financed the film through Kickstarter after the Independent Television Service withdrew funding. How are Koch Brothers influencing the media and politics in the US? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
