“The target was 535 Members of Congress and the idea was to create the impression that a mass movement was afoot, that everywhere they looked people were talking about campaign finance reform,” Treglia explained on the video.
Not one of the journalists listening to Treglia challenged him on the fact he was, in effect, admitting a massive, systematic pack of lies.
Nor did any of them do what was minimally required of them as journalists, which was to write a story about Treglia’s admission.
And that’s why we shouldn’t credit too much genius to the lefties who create these astro-turfed wonders of public opinion manipulation.
After all, it helps when so many journalists covering American politics desperately want to believe these Potemkin villages are reality.
