Mitt's billion-dollar sugar daddy, BP petroleum pirates and other harrowing updates from Greg Palast

As the presidential primaries kick into high gear, campaign contributions from big oil, high finance and other corporate high rollers who want four more years of the status quo are gushing.

With growing pressure from the 99 percent, these elites of the 1 percent are working overtime to protect their turf.

The Media's Role in the Fate of the World

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Maria Armoudian about her new book "Kill the Messenger: The Media's Role in the Fate of the World," an in-depth examination of the media's power to help or harm.

What role do the media have in creating the conditions for atrocities in areas of conflict? Conversely, can the media be used to preserve democracy and safeguard the human rights of all citizens in a diverse society? How will the media affect the fate of the planet itself.

How does the media interact with psychological and cultural forces to impact perceptions, fears, peer-pressure, "groupthink," and the creation of heroes and villains?

Life in and after a cult: A conversation with a former member of "The Move"

Sam Fife began offering his vision of divine rule on earth in his small New Orleans church in the 1960s. By 1979, when Fife died in an airplane crash, The Move of the Spirit had grown into an international ministry that included thousands, many living separated from society in communal farms. The Move taught that members were creating a society in which people were free to hear and be led by divine prophecy. Ex-members, however, paint a different picture: a corrupt system of leadership that used physical, sexual and psychological abuse to maintain control.
