    Same with Obama and Goldman Sachs but we actually have the checks there.

    Major media, NYT, New Yorker, the Guardian etc.

    But none of the "rights" media, so what're ya gonna do.

    But all the rights media clqims in regards to the OWS movement are accepted as gospel, even though its WAY too soon to make claims of sponsorship.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it IS "astroturf".

    As some tried (and failed) to successfully astroturf the Tea Party.

    Who I have repeatedly lauded for taking the money and publicity and running.

    Furthering their OWN agenda instead of the one some of their sponsors intended.
    You've not even posted the "wrong" media.

    Koch Industries clearly funds American's for Prosperity, but they weasel by saying they didn't earmark the money for the Tea Party.

    Koch Industries: We Don't Fund Tea Parties (Except For The Tea Parties We Fund) | TPMMuckraker

    AFP's North Carolina branch has a Web site called www.nctaxdayteaparty.com that encourages supporters to "contact Americans for Prosperity-NC with questions about throwing a Tea Party in your town! We are here to help you have a great success!"

    In an interview this morning, Cohlmia confirmed Koch's role backing AFP. Asking how that squares with the statement that Koch not provide funding "specifically to support the tea parties," Cohlmia said "the statement stands."

    Different arguements. Did Fox happily provide coverage? Sure. Will MSNBC do the same for the Wall Street thing? Of course they will. So what?

    Okay, Ron Paul had an organization called the Tea Party back then. However, the Tea Party movement really got its start after a rant by Rick Santelli on CNBC business network on February 19, 2009.

    This is "Astroturf Synergy" in action.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    If it is 'astroturf' then people won't be camped out and protesting very long and new people won't be joining so you conservatives can just chill until it's over. If it is grassroots, then it will continue and grow - and you conservatives should be afraid because 2012 is not going to be a good year for your kind.
