The media plays an important role in our politics and the quantity and nature of media coverage a campaign receives can dramatically impact their ability to successfully fundraise. But that is merely one of the many ways that the media, money, and politics, all intersect. Michael Hardaway was a fundraiser on some of Barack Obama’s earliest campaigns, and is now the founder of a media startup called Hardaway Wire, which provides “intelligence briefings" to their membership on the major political issues of the day. Michael joins the Money in Politics podcast to discuss how significant financial decisions in business can be influenced by politics, and how the media can shape these high stakes decisions through their accurate- or not so accurate- reporting of the policymaking process.
