Shilling, large scale

April 10, 2009 am30 1:18 am

I wrote about the UFT giving council members cue cards. Ok, it didn’t look good. But it’s really not that big a deal. Had they e-mailed suggested questions, no one would have blinked.

So I didn’t bother pointing fingers at who else plays the “scripting” game. But I should have.

Bloomberg and his Chancellor do much heavier “scripted messages” than the UFT could ever come up with. They have entire press offices, paid with public money, to make the message smooth. They can and do set up and fund fake front organizations (Learn NY), and buy public figures.
