    Our political system is broken.  Citizens United needs to be tossed out.  We need public financing of elections and better public access to issues and debates.  Gerrymandering of congressional districts should be outlawed.  If the assessment of whether an organization fits into one or the other bucket is so complex there is something wrong.  

    As usual Bernie says it better than I can:

    The news media in Washington, D.C., was focused on a scandal at the IRS, the Justice Department’s seizure of Associated Press phone records and the Obama administration’s editing of talking points about the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya. Meanwhile, Sen. Bernie Sanders said, “the media may not be all that concerned about little things like the collapse of the American middle class.” He argued that the press should pay attention to what he called  “a new normal” in America where real unemployment was almost 14 percent in April, median income has fallen since the economic collapse in 2008 and poverty is near an all-time high.
