Travel to the remote epicenter of the campaign finance debate for a tale of money, politics and intrigue. In a special investigation in collaboration with Marketplace, FRONTLINE presents Big Sky, Big Money on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11 and 1011). How has the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision changed campaigns in America? Ask Montana, which has tried to challenge the ruling in court, is investigating alleged campaign abuses and is playing host to a bitter race that could decide control of the U.S. Senate. FRONTLINE correspondent and Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal reports. Also this hour: PBS NEWSHOUR correspondent Hari Sreenivasan, reporting for FRONTLINE, goes deep inside the Romney and Obama campaigns to uncover how data collected from millions of Americans is being used by both camps to target their messages, get out the vote and shape the election.
