What is astroturf in politics?

Link.


Campaigns & Elections magazine defines astroturf as a "grassroots program that involves the instant manufacturing of public support for a point of view in which either uninformed activists are recruited or means of deception are used to recruit them." Journalist William Greider has coined his own term to describe corporate grassroots organizing. He calls it "democracy for hire."

Looks like oil company executives have seen the success of the "Tea Partiers" (called "baggers" by others) and are following suit.


No profanes - sacred
