None Dare Call It Astroturf (Well, Except Most Of Us)
First Glenn Reynolds writes glowingly in the Murdoch-owned NY Post about the Fox News teabag parties, then today he writes again about the revolutionary impact of the lobbyist organized tea parties in the pages of… the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal.
When all those media companies in the late 1990s were talking about synergy, this is the kind of collaborative work amongst corporate siblings they were talking about. Now, sure, they were thinking more of cross-platform merchandising of cute and cuddly cartoon figures, but hey, whatever.
ALSO: I forgot to mention that they are robocalling support for the teabagging parties now.
ALSO: I think I’m going to check out the teabag party in DC… Got to remember to charge up my video camera.
