Unrig 2019 Panel – What's Wrong with a Little Transparency? – Nashville (poor audio quality)

What’s Wrong with a Little Transparency?
While the political reform community continues to push for greater government transparency and stronger campaign finance disclosure laws, some say these reforms would go too far. The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) views donor privacy as critical to free speech, and the Congressional Research Institute sees pitfalls in the rise of legislative transparency. Panelists from those two organizations square off with two leading advocates for reform.

James D’Angelo – Senior Fellow at the Congressional Research Institute
Shelby Emmett – Director, Center to Protect Free Speech, American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)
Dan Krassner – RepresentUs
Ellen Weintraub – Federal Elections Commissioner (confirmed)

Moderator: Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law Professor

Room: 208, Music City Center
Date/Time: Friday March 29th 2019 – 2:15pm – 3:15pm

Firstly, thanks for recording and sharing, was somewhat interesting to (kind of) hear some different views.
Personally, I'd prefer the camera to have been left viewing all the panellists rather than zooming in, seeing the different body-language responses as others spoke is informative, allowing them to respond for the audience, without interrupting the speaker.
Shame about the audio, but it was better than nothing.
