In this eye-opening talk, veteran investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson shows how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages.
Sharyl Attkisson is an investigative journalist based in Washington D.C.

For twenty years (through March 2014), Attkisson was a correspondent for CBS News. In 2013, she received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism for her reporting on “The Business of Congress,” which included an undercover investigation into fundraising by Republican freshmen. She also received Emmy nominations in 2013 for Benghazi: Dying for Security and Green Energy Going Red. Additionally, Attkisson received a 2013 Daytime Emmy Award as part of the CBS Sunday Morning team’s entry for Outstanding Morning Program for her report: “Washington Lobbying: K-Street Behind Closed Doors.” In September 2012, Attkisson also received an Emmy for Oustanding Investigative Journalism for the “Gunwalker: Fast and Furious” story. She received the RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting for the same story.

Bernie Sanders Powerful Speech On Criminal Justice In 1991 "Let's Not Keep Putting Poor People Into Jail & Disproportionately Punishing Blacks!"
In 1991, Rep. Bernie Sanders believed passionately that the United States criminal justice system was on the wrong track, and even back then incarceration rates (the number of people in prison per 1000 population) showed the authoritarian direction crime had taken in America. He also spoke highly on race issues and fought hard for it.

Consumer spending during America's Thanksgiving weekend dropped compared with last year, but the decline can be attributed to an improving economy and changing shopping habits, a survey found Sunday.
According to the National Retail Federation's Thanksgiving weekend spending survey, 55.1 percent of holiday shoppers were expected to visit stores or go online over Thanksgiving weekend, down from 58.7 percent last year.
"A strengthening economy that changes consumers' reliance on deep discounts, a highly competitive environment, early promotions, and the ability to shop 24/7 online all contributed to the shift witnessed this weekend," NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay said in a statement.
According to the survey, the average weekend shopper was expected to spend $380.95, down 6.4 percent from $407.02 last year.
Total spending was expected to reach $50.9 billion, down from last year’s estimated $57.4 billion.
American consumers flood stores looking for steep discounts, particularly on electronics, toys, and clothes, during the Thanksgiving weekend, which kicks off Christmas holiday spending.
Black Friday still drew the biggest crowds, but the weekend has been expanded into a number of speciality commercial "holidays": "Gray Thursday," "Small Business Saturday," and "Cyber Monday."
Of those who went shopping Saturday, three-quarters said they did so specifically to support "Small Business Saturday," which is a growing movement to encourage residents to support local sellers.
Many online retailers also offered discounts in the days before Black Friday, possibly accounting for a reduced overall spend on the day itself.
"Early online promotions before the big weekend may have taken some of consumer's spending power with them," the NRF statement read.
The survey was conducted Friday and Saturday by Prosper Insights & Analytics for NRF. It polled 4,631 consumers and had a margin of error of 1.5 percentage points.
