Each week, we partner with Breaking Points to review some of The Daily Poster’s most impactful reporting. In this week’s discussion, Andrew Perez talks with Krystal and Saagar about how pharmaceutical companies’ massive lobbying and advertising campaign successfully prompted Democrats to water down their promised drug pricing plan, and in the process saved the drug industry roughly half a trillion dollars.

We send out the clip of these discussions once a week. You can also find Breaking Points’ YouTube channel here.

This collaboration adds to our partnerships with Jacobin, Newsweek, The Guardian, The Hill, The American Prospect, The Intercept, and Earther. All of these partnerships help defray the costs of doing our labor-intensive investigations, allow our work to have wider distribution and a bigger impact, and add to the movement to build an independent, non-corporate media.
