Thom is speaking in NYC:

Thom Hartmann on "When Corporations became People"

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a recent 5-4 decision, ruled that corporations have the same rights as citizens.

Thom Hartmann, the country’s #1 progressive radio host and author of over 20 books, traces the history of corporate personhood in this presentation “Unequal Protection”. Hartmann considers that ruling to be wrong.

The first amendment guarantees FREE SPEECH for people, not corporations. But the ruling for Citizen’s United by the Supreme Court has opened the flood-gates for corporate money in political campaigns.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
