Support Bush, Win a Mousepad


| February 5, 2003

Grassroots political organizing has gone the way of faux sod, writes Jules Agee in a concerned letter to tech writer Declan McCullagh?s Web site Politechbot.com. ?It looks like the Bush administration is astroturfing, trying to artificially create the appearance of a grassroots movement supporting their policies,? Agee writes. ?A Google search on the phrase ?demonstrating genuine leadership? returns a number of nearly identical letters sent to the editors of various newspapers and publications this month, each one with the name of a different individual attached.? Upon investigating Agee?s concern, PRWatch.org uncovered a three-year-old ?fad? in which a Republican party Web site offers totebags, mousepads, and coolers in exchange for letters to the editor.
