Of course, ALEC stands for “American Legislative Exchange Council”, and has been in a bit of hot water since years worth of it’s documents were exposed in 2011.
After several months of research, PBS’s “Moyers & Company” program briefly breaks away from it’s standard format of inviting interesting people who are not usually seen on American media to sit down and discuss issues with Moyers. Instead, the show offers a 30 minute documentary about the secretive organization which has been introducing corporate friendly legislation since 1973 without any public oversight.
Thirty minutes is nowhere near enough time to cover this story, but Moyers has produced many other documentaries which every American should see. They usually have you sitting there with your mouth open, wondering why nobody else is talking about this.
This organization is of local interest for every state in the union, but is of special interest here, due to ALEC’s very recent conference which was held in Salt Lake’s Grand America Hotel.
The show will air on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. on KUED and again at 2:30 p.m. on KBYU. You can also watch the program here anytime.
Take a look!
Update: Here are videos from two of the people included in the Moyers piece plus another one from the first speaker when they were in Salt Lake:
