Moyers & Company
"United States of Alec"
In an encore broadcast this weekend (check local listings), Moyers & Company presents "United States of ALEC," a report 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. D
