Buying access in Washington

Glenn Greenwald interviews Harper’s Ken Silverstein:

A couple of weeks ago, Politico’s Mike Allen exposed The Washington Post’s plans to charge lobbyists and corporations large amounts of money to meet — at the home of… The Post’s publisher — with various… Post reporters and… senior Obama officials.…  Shortly thereafter, however,Harper’s Washington… Editor, Ken Silverstein, uncovered several events organized by… Politico that raise similar (albeit less blatant)… questions as the ones raised by… The… Post’s events. … Silverstein often reports on the sleazy, corrupting intersection of money, influence and media in Washington.
