About Us

Y’all Politics is the longest running and most respected political news and commentary media outlet in the state of Mississippi.  Founded in 2004 by Alan Lange, Publisher, it has served as the generator and aggregator of news and opinion content with one focus in mind . . . . Mississippi politics.

Our original work has been featured in dozens of publications statewide and nationally, and the site is continually mentioned among the top echelon of political interest media outlets in national publications.

Sarah Ulmer, Capitol Reporter, covers all things under the Capitol Dome and with elected officials.  Sarah is a graduate of Mississippi State University.  She has added a perspective that’s lacking to political news coverage in Mississippi, and she is a go-to in the media community where public officials on both sides of the aisle can go to get equal time and fair coverage.

Anne Summerhays, Capitol Correspondent, reports on news involving the Mississippi Legislature, education and business. Anne is a native of Louisiana. She graduated from Millsaps College, earning a degree in Political Science along with minors in American Studies and Sociology.

Fact Checking Policy

With over 16 years of daily publishing, our goal is 100% accuracy for headlines and we vet every news article on the site. We do our best to decipher what is rumor vs. fact to give our readers the best sense of what is and what is likely to be based on our vast and specific experience in political news coverage.  Even if other competing report an unsubstantiated piece of news as official confirmation, we require 100% confirmation to claim it’s actually confirmation.

Our writers and editors are experienced in Mississippi politics and we take great care to ensure every new article has the latest and most accurate info, and all relevant details. When we are the original source, we follow basic journalism principles.

Corrections Policy

While make every effort to be both responsive and accurate, occasionally over the course of over 60,000 posts in 16 years, we get something wrong.  When we do, we note it and fix it as best we can and as transparently as possible.  That’s how we would want to be treated, and it’s how we treat people.

Ethics Policy

We do not publish or condone publishing personal attacks.  If our reporters or editors have a conflict on a story, we say so and let the readers factor that into the coverage.  We believe it is our responsibility to contribute to the online publishing ecosystem and best journalism practices.
