POLITICO Magazine Previews Why Charles Lewis Left ’60 Minutes’

This week, it’s POLITICO Magazine, which, among other things, examines Washington through a lens of money, politics, and power.

The cover promotes three articles: The Pitchforks are Coming… For Us Plutocrats, by Nick Hanauer; Karl Rove and the Modern Money Machine, by Kenneth P. Vogel; and The Myth of America’s Golden Age, by Joseph E. Stiglitz.

Also included – Checks and Imbalances – a special report that asks: ”Is our society rigged? That’s what a growing number of Americans believe, and reams of statistics indicate: Economic and political power is now concentrated in fewer hands than ever before, while the middle class wastes away. The 1 percent has never had it so good, but can it last?”

Check it out, online now, and in print tomorrow.
