It is great for the American people that Moyers is choosing to do another show. The first expose' he did on ALEC has been a tremendous asset - educating people nationwide about the extremist pro-corporate Ameircan Legislative Exchange Council.
- the whole 50 minute program is available on the Moyers webpage
This week, Moyers & Company reports on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of — ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a “nonpartisan public-private partnership”. But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
Updated coverage includes new examples of corporate influence on state legislation and lawmakers, the growing public protest against ALEC’s big business-serving agenda, and internal tactics ALEC is instituting to further shroud its actions and intentions.
