Great blog post from 2old2care on “BecauseIcan” blog about ALEC and the way in which the cabal keeps sending out their members masquerading as “journalists” for the RW in an effort to downplay ALEC’s activities. This has been happening for decades – only now we’re up on it as are many more Americans. When we see the articles and just perform a cursory research skim of the authors, journalists and speakers – we always come away with the knowledge that most of those supporting ALEC, praising their work and legislative efforts…are in fact members of ALEC or one of their affiliates. None of the stories are being written by unbiased reporters or journalists – they all come from the same playbook (written by ALEC or Koch) and are slipped into the media in support of ALEC.
I urge all to see for themselves…pick any RW article in support of ALEC and/or the Kochs, then put the author’s name in a search with the American Legislative Exchange Council, or Heritage, CATO, Mackinac…and watch the thousands of returns pop up on your screen.
As a fan of 2old2care’s writing, I also urge you to read it by clicking here
