Sharyl Attkisson on Astroturfing

Adland: 

Sit up, take notes and pay attention. Veteran investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson shows how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages. We're very familiar with astroturfing here, but it doesn't hurt to be reminded of how it works. This manipulates the media and shapes the ideas of the world.
