Whose interests are being served? An FCC on the verge of a decision that favors big business over the public interest. A Supreme Court leaning more and more on the side of corporations. Plus, Bill Press talks with Ben & Jerry’s Ben Cohen about tax cuts for America’s wealthiest families.
This week, former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps on how losing net neutrality will be a loss for democracy. Nan Aron, founder and President of the Alliance for Justice on what she calls the “Corporate Court” under Chief Justice John Roberts. And Bill Press with Ben & Jerry’s Ben Cohen on who will benefit the most from the GOP tax plan.

Michael J. Copps
Michael J. Copps served as an FCC commissioner from 2001 to 2011 where he was a tireless advocate for the “public interest” in our nation’s media … and for fighting to stem the tide of excessive consolidation in the telecommunications industries. He continues that work as head of the Media and Democracy Reform Initiative at Common Cause where he has been sounding the alarm about a pending FCC decision that could be the end of “net neutrality”.
Nan Aron is the founder and President of the Alliance for Justice. She is a leading progressive voice on matters related to our nation’s judiciary.
Bill Press talks with Ben & Jerry’s Ben Cohen about the GOP tax plan and what it means for Americans across the income spectrum, plus the launch of a new “Poor People’s Campaign”.
