Campaign Finance and Trump. Haiti Update and more…

monToday on Flashpoints, we begin with a discussion of campaign finance. Where Billionaire candidate Donald Trump has become an unlikely champion of reform We then continue our coverage of haiti as we get closer and closer to the expected  announcement of the results of the recent election there. Then we turn to breaking news in the Ukraine, where the US- backed Ukraine military is exchanging artillery fire with pro-Russian separatists. We then turn to national security, where we hear two perspectives on how the NSA is invading American privacy and how AT&T has become an active partner with their spy program. Finally we are proud to announce that Flashpoints executive producer Dennis Bernstein just received the Whistle Blower Summit: The 2015 Pillar Award for broadcast. We speak with Dennis about his career in journalism and the future of Flashpoints.
