Corporations, Corruption, Cronyism, etc. (links, videos)

Here is just a bunch of links and videos I’ve come across recently. 

Most of this relates to scandalous behavior and the corrupt backroom deals behind the political news that typically gets superficially reported in the mainstream media. But some of it is just about the funding behind different groups and movements. I’ve also thrown in, from Source Watch, some related topics that are relevant to the issues of funding and lobbyist groups (specifically related to Koch Industries and Mitch McConnell). 

It’s not a systematic list or anything. It’s more like a tangled web of some stuff that caught my attention. Enjoy!
