Praise for Dollarocracy:
“The billionaires are buying our media and our elections. They’re spinning our democracy into a dollarocracy. John Nichols and Bob McChesney expose the culprits who steered America into the quagmire of big money and provide us with the tools to free ourselves and our republic from the corporate kleptocrats.”
(Lisa Graves, Executive Director, Center for Media and Democracy)
