The Other Astroturf

Astroturf used to be for fake lawns, but lately it’s been used to describe the disinformation battle being waged on the general public. The corporatocracy has been waging a war on truth since long before we were born and since the advent of social media they’ve ramped up their games. In this eye opening TED talk CBS investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson reports on the important issue of astroturfing that colors the information we’re taking in on a daily basis and affects everyone.

This TED talk should be seen by all everyone, but if you know someone who still thinks a majority of the mainstream media is factual then you really need to share it with them.
