On the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement, Cenk takes a look back at how the combination of stagnating income and rising corporate profits helped spark a new understanding of economic inequality. “They’re killing the American dream,” Cenk says. “The whole point isn’t equality of results, it’s about equality of opportunity. That’s what the core of the Occupy movement was about.” You can also watch Cenk’s extended interview with David DeGraw, credited with coining “the 99 percent.”
TONIGHT at 7E/4P: Brett Erlich and Ben Mankiewicz join Cenk to talk about the congressional committee hearing about the IRS and Anthony Weiner's return to politics. Plus, Sen. Ginny Lyons aims to get corporate money out of politics. JOIN THE LIVE CHAT.
