The Story of Citizens United v. FEC by The Story of Stuff

Geschreven op 21-1-2020 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Agenda, Duurzaam Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Nine years ago The Story of Stuff released The Story of Citizens United v. FEC, an animated short that explores how unchecked political spending by corporations threatens democracy.

Today, they are re-launching that video to mark the ten years since that disastrous U.S. Supreme Court ruling unleashed a tidal wave of corporate cash. 

The Story of Citizens United v. FEC explores the inordinate power that corporations exercise in our democracy. The movie explores the history of the American corporation and corporate political spending, the appropriate roles of citizens and for-pro?t corporations in a democracy and the toxic impact the Citizens United Supreme Court decision is having on our political process. It ends with a call to amend the U.S. Constitution to con?rm that people—not corporations—make the decisions in a democracy.

Season two launches on Sunday March 1st with The Story of Citizens United v. FEC, an exploration of the inordinate power that corporations exercise in our democracy.

    Citizens United v. FEC by Bill of Rights Institute (BRI) Homework Help Series

    Citizens United v. FEC was a Supreme Court case surrounding campaign finance and corporate involvement in politics. The Federal Election Commission was created in 1971 and greatly regulated the amount of campaign finance political candidates were able to receive.

    By 2002, the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act (McCain-Feingold Act) restricted organizations from financing issue-based advertisements on behalf of candidates. Citizens United released a million dollar ad against Hillary Clinton. Before the film aired,

    Citizens United challenged the McCain-Feingold Act, stating that money was a form of Free Speech, which is protected by the First Amendment. The Supreme Court ruled the McCain-Feingold Act as unconstitutional, but stated that corporations still cannot give money directly to political candidates.
