Lois Beckett reports: "ALEC and its members favor 'federalism and conservative public policy solutions,' and ALEC representatives tell reporters that its mission is fundamentally 'educational.' ALEC spokeswoman Raegan Weber told the Los Angeles Times, 'Legislators should hear from those the government intends to regulate.' Founded in the mid-1970s, ALEC has no real counterpart on the left."

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Please, please, make this sort of information available to the American voter - from now on. Don't stop. There has to be a way to let the sunshine in; this might be it. I'm not against watching Faux Noise, but I am for giving the people the whole truth. Give people a way to make up their own minds instead of being hoodwinked as they have been.
