BILL MOYERS JOURNAL | Buying the Bench? | PBS

Duration: 03:10
Program: Bill Moyers Journal #1343
Broadcast Date: Feb. 19, 2010

As two-thirds of American voters oppose the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. FEC, BILL MOYERS JOURNAL takes a hard look at how campaign cash in judicial races may sway America's courts. The JOURNAL revisits the 1999 FRONTLINE special, "Justice for Sale," which looked at the growing concern — even among Supreme Court justices themselves — that campaign contributions may be corrupting the judicial process. Then, Bill Moyers sits down with legal analyst and journalist Jeffrey Toobin to talk about the relationship between big money and judicial elections today.
