ASTROTURFING THE MILITARY: The Mudville Gazette notes another bogus antiwar story:

As of this writing, over 200 newspapers have carried the story; The Boston Globe, al-Jazeera, The Washington Post, ABC News, Reuters, The (UK) Guardian… but none of the stories acknowledge the orchestration of the event by Fenton Communications.

If Wal-Mart were behind this, they’d be calling it disgraceful and manipulative.
