Nov. 3 - Lightening the money
U.S. companies are facing heightened pressure to play the political money game – and heightened risk if they do. The Center for Political Accountability, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization started by former reporter Bruce Freed, has been working for years to urge the corporations — some of the biggest spenders in congressional and legislative races — to reduce that risk by disclosing their political spending even when they are not legally required to do so. And he’s had some success. Join Freed and his staff for a look at this year’s CPA-Zicklin Index and a new database, TrackYourCompany.org. These are tools that can help reporters track and understand otherwise opaque corporate political spending.
