Alabama Political Reporter
On December 7, 2011, the Alabama Political Reporter became a reality. It has been three very exciting and event filled years for the editors and staff at the Alabama Political Reporter.
Since then, for five days a week, 52 weeks a year, we have covered legislative sessions, corruption scandals, trials, investigations, a Presidential election, a gubernatorial election, redistricting, tea parties, the major issues, legislative races, every competitive, statewide or modestly competitive congressional race in the State, as well as just about everything else under the Sun related to politics, in more depth and accuracy than any other news source in the State of Alabama.
Regular readers of the Alabama Political Reporter are the best informed citizens in the State on matters affecting them and their State government, and we do everything we possibly can to keep them that way. We love sports, weather, stocks, bass fishing and gossip, just like everyone else, but we are not a jack-of-all-trades news service. We are focused like a laser on the world of Alabama politics so our readers can find out what is happening without having to go digging through the unwieldy web sites of some of our competitors.
We have been widely criticized in some circles for exposing corruption that involves the rich and powerful in this State. Oh well, we we’re never going to be members of their country clubs anyway. If people’s feelings were hurt because we exposed some unpleasant truths, or even if a certain someone received 23 criminal indictments, we’re sorry, but, that person should have handled his business in a more ethical manner.
What matters most to us is our readers, and the relentless pursuit of the truth.
We will always pursue the truth wherever it leads us. Of course, we have our own political views, and there are people we like and people we dislike, but our reporting remains unbiased.
We are not a mouthpiece for any political party, corporation, candidate or special interest. All views are welcomed here. We ask the hard questions that other journalists and media companies are afraid to ask.
We’d like to thank our readers for always being there to support us and we thank our advertisers for their continued support.
We are proud to say the we have the most intelligent, well-read, best informed, politically astute readers in the State of Alabama, and we are very thankful for all of you.
