General Motors is entering its fourth week in bankruptcy. The government has sunk $50 billion into the company, and is expected to own most of it by the end of the summer. President Obama has made it clear that he doesn't want to run GM, but that hasn't stopped some in Washington from trying to influence how the company does business.

Guest host Alison Stewart talks to NPR's Frank Langfitt about how some Washington politicians are trying to have their say.
