By State Representative Chris Taylor
I’m at my third American Exchange Legislative Council (ALEC)...
The Progressive magazine and the Center for Media and Democracy are merging!
Walking in the footsteps of "Fighting Bob" La Follette, we will continue to break big news, expose the Robber Barons, and champion key progressive values, including civil liberties, civil rights, economic justice, peace, and greater environmental protections.
Together, our two nonprofits -- both based in Madison, Wisconsin -- will do more to defend democracy and civil society than we could ever do alone.
We will continue to run PRwatch.org, ALECexposed.org, SourceWatch.org, Public School Shakedown, and other investigative and outreach projects. Together, we will have a stronger voice, a greater reach, and a bigger impact.
And we will continue to publish The Progressive magazine, a national treasure, which recently celebrated its 105th birthday. CMD will move its research team into The Progressive to do more original reporting on the Banksters and the bullies, the phony front groups, the dark money lords, and the modern Robber Barons and ballot bandits that are destroying our democracy.
If you are in the Madison area, come join the fun Wednesday, April 9th as we exchange merger vows in a special ceremony, with Jim Hightower presiding!
Please help celebrate this exciting union with a subscription to The Progressive, now fortified by CMD!
