The Spotlight was a weekly newspaper in the United States, published in Washington, D.C. from September 1975 to July 2001 by the now-defunct Liberty Lobby. Articles in The Spotlight newspaper appear to have come closer to the truth than any other American publication since THE FEDERALIST PAPERS and prior to the PHOENIX JOURNALS and the PHOENIX JOURNAL EXPRESS, LIBERATOR, CONTACT and SPECTRUM newspapers.

The Spotlight ceased publication in 2001 after Liberty Lobby was forced into bankruptcy as a result of a lawsuit brought by former associates of the Institute for Historical Review.  Willis Carto and other people involved in The Spotlight then started a new newspaper, the American Free Press, which is very similar in overall tone.

An August 2, 2002 court order in the Superior Court of California transferred the assets of Liberty Lobby, including The Spotlight, to the judgment creditor, the Legion for the Survival of Freedom, Inc. who maintains an online archive of Spotlight articles from 1997 to 2001.  Curiously, the article: 'AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT--PEARL HARBOR; 1941-1991 DECEMBER 7, 1941 UNFORGETTABLE' by Mike Blair, transcribed above, is not among that archive, presumably censored and confiscated by the Judicial Court system in an ongoing attempt to cover up the truth.  However, the incomplete Spotlight archive is available on-line at: ttp:// .

In honor and memory of a great nationalist, Willis Carto, July 17, 1926 - October 26, 2015.

In 1955, Carto founded an organization called Liberty Lobby, which remained in operation under his control until 2001, when the organization was forced into bankruptcy as a result of a lawsuit.  Liberty Lobby was perhaps best known for publishing the newspaper The Spotlight between 1975 and 2001.

Willis Carto was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  He fought in World War II, serving in the Philippines and earning the Purple Heart.  After leaving the military he lived with his parents in Mansfield, Ohio.  He took some classes at the University of Cincinnati Law School.  He later worked for Procter & Gamble and moved west to San Francisco, California where he worked for the Household Finance Company.

Willis Carto and several Spotlight staff members and writers have since founded a new newspaper called the American Free Press.  He also founded the Institute for Historical Review.  Carto's current American Free Press continues in the spirit of the Liberty Lobby's The Spotlight.  He described himself as Jeffersonian and populist.  He died at age 89.

Thank you, Willis Carto, for your pursuit of and devotion to truth, for fighting for freedom of speech in America and for working to enlighten the American people.
