Dear Lobbyists: When Crafting Astroturf Letters, Remember To Do
A Search & Replace On XYZ Corp.

,----[ Quote ]
| In researching this further, Karl also can't 
| find any other evidence that the Arkansas 
| Retired Seniors exist. Separately, he found 
| another mistake by the lobbyists when it sent a 
| different anti-net neutrality letter from 
| Grumman Shipbuilding (ship builders against 
| neutrality?). This one wasn't as egregious, but 
| the lobbyists forgot to remove the header info 
| that says "Governor/PUC Letters to FCC on Net 
| Neutrality" with the neat little classification 
| system the lobbyists use: "Letter 2: Specific 
| to Investment and Employment." Wonder what the

| Political performance artists, The Yes Men,

AT&T Asks Employees To Hide AT&T Affiliation While Protesting Net Neutrality Laws

| all AT&T employees urging them to protest any new
| net neutrality laws and hide their AT&T
| affiliation as they do so. AT&T has confirmed the
| email, which has numerous factual errors (and
| remember, I actually agree that net neutrality
| laws don't make sense). But, more importantly, the
| mainstream media is now calling AT&T out for this
| outrageous effort to have employees pretend
| they're not employees in protesting these rules.
