Press Coverage of the ALEC Meeting?

Does the Utah press have full, open access to the entire American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) Annual meeting?

What press has access to the meeting and to what parts of the meeting?

ALEC is always bragging about their public-private partnership.

Well, the “private” is represented:
corporations are there
right wing extremist nonprofits are there
the legislative puppets of the corporations are there

Where is the “public”?
Does the media have full access to the annual meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)?

Do we have full public disclosure of the nastiness that the American Legislative Exchange Council is planning for the United States of America  

 –  – or only carefully scripted press snips outside the hotel 
 –  – made to look like cooperation with the press?

Will the Utah press - press ALEC for full disclosure of what is going on inside the posh  Grand American Hotel?

Or will the Utah press idiotically and robotic-ally report anything and everything that ALEC members tell them
-  without researching what they are told for truth and accuracy.

Will the Utah press be real investigative reporters - or a mouthpiece for ALEC propaganda?

I'm guessing the latter - cause that is what happens at every meeting.

  1. Breitbart "News" has gained access but not Occupy News Radio--naturally (I'm here on the ground and have verified these two facts).
