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.
