David Simon, journalist and creator of the TV series The Wire and Treme, returns to talk with Bill Moyers about the triumph of capital over democracy.
“If I could concentrate and focus on one thing … and start to walk the nightmare back, it would be campaign finance reform” Simon says.
Simon warns that if we don’t fix our broken election system — by getting big money out of elections and ending gerrymandering — we will have reached “the end game for democracy.”
