The two award-winning authors discuss their new book, “Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America” (Nation Books, 2013). Blending vivid reporting from the 2012 campaign trail and deep perspective from decades covering American and international media and politics, political journalist John Nichols and media critic Robert W. McChesney explain how US elections are becoming controlled, predictable enterprises that are managed by a new class of consultants who wield millions of dollars and define our politics as never before.

“I hope Dollarocracy reaches a large audience, not just among journalists but among the citizens who will produce the next journalism, so we can all move toward a more open, competent and trustworthy press.”- Bill Kovach, former Washington Bureau Chief of the New York Times, and former editor of the Atlanta Journal Constitution
“Dollarocracy gets at what’s ailing America better than any other diagnosis I’ve encountered. Plus it prescribes a cure. What else could a reader–or a citizen–ask? To me, it’s the book of the year.”- Michael J. Copps, FCC Commisioner, 2001-2011
