The Supreme Court found in 2010 that corporations are entitled to First Amendment protection in the landmark case Citizens United v. FEC. The shorthand outcome of the case was that, now, “corporations are people” and “money is speech.” Since, organizations have been able to give unlimited amounts of funding to politically influence voters, igniting criticism that those with fewer resources are being drowned out. Kimberly Reed watched her home state of Montana be the only state to fight the ruling. Now, she’s releasing her last film, “Dark Money,” documenting the impact of Citizens United. She joins Soledad O’Brien for a discussion on the film and why disclosure is more important than spending limits.
