Koch Brothers Exposed provides an in-depth look at the influence of money on ideas, legislators, policyand legislation. Koch Brothers Exposed is a provocative example detailing how money corrupts ourdemocracy and can cast influence over a vast network of organizations that undermine the interestsof most Americans.
This film from Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: the High Cost of Low Price; Outfoxed;Rethink Afghanistan) and Brave New Foundation explores and reveals the impact of money influencehow Americans can reclaim democracy.
This film is timely as Americans become more aware of the influence of money especially since theCitizens United decision.
According to Rhoda Schermer, Chairperson of NJPPN, "Democracy is fragile. It requires everyone’sinvolvement, transparency, factual information, discussion and a search for the best policies thatserve the public. Probably the greatest threat to democracy is the influence of money. While the KochBrothers are the focus of this film, they are but one example of money influencing elections and policy.Americans need to become well informed because our democratic process is at stake.”
