  •  Astroturf is a time honored tradition (3+ / 0-)

    Among large corporations at this point. I've seen it on the consumer goods end of the spectrum a few times, and it's always full of lulz. I know Harley tried it, very clumsily, posting comments to blog posts more than a year old, with absolutely, blatantly obvious falsehoods.

    The fact that Fox does it is no surprise. I remember back when RedState was sane, there was some anti-net neutrality lobbyist trying to sway opinion on there, back before conservatives decided net neutrality was bad. Then there's the guy who for a few years commented anywhere on in regards to California. Turns out he owns a business whose sole service is to facilitate businesses leaving California.

    That it goes on in the political realm should be no surprise to anyone.

    First they came for the farm workers, and I said nothing.
