Our focus this week was going to be on Astroturf® organizations (created out of whole cloth with funding from prominent corporate elite structures in pharma, oil, energy and more) who are trying boldly to disrupt policy debates on a host of issues, but it was not easy to sift through the vast maze of lobbyists and websites. Corporomedia via Reuters actually got ONE story out there The summer of Astroturf which tells us, "The Public Relations Society of America equates it with the use of "front groups," which the above organizations accuse one another of being. (The trade organization eschews the more popular term "because Astroturf is a registered trademark.") The society, noted its Chairman and CEO Michael Cherenson, bans the practice - to no evident effect." Please comment and provide links to these so-called "Astroturf®" organizations for a future Brick TeeVee Special. Meanwhile the WH & Pentagon send the HumVee out with Joint Chiefs Admiral MIKE MULLEN and U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan and former Lieutenant (3-star) General KARL EIKENBERRY to Meet the David and State of the King to prop up the Afghanistan "surge", a war now in its 8th year with no strategy (other than protecting oil/gas pipelines aka PIPELINEISTAN). DOCTOR HOWARD DEAN goes to Face The Bob to take on Big Pharma Stooge CHUCK GRASSLEY and Blue Dog Apologist KENT CONRAD. Fake News Sunday tries to look "bi-partisan" with New Dem ARLEN SPECTRE. Throw bricks at JOE LIEBERMAN and DICK LUGAR on State of the King. Or throw bricks at dinosaur JOHN "Crazy Train" MCCAIN on This Snufagopolis. Your choice! Give a great big "welcome back" to GEORGE WILL on ABC's Roundtable where The KrugMan and ROBERT RIECH rib Will on his "extended" vacation (not unlike teabaggers' favorite targets those damned Public School Union Teachers getting all summer off!) Of course there's plenty of SUBSTANCE in the BTV Alerts and our regulars at AntiWar and Max Keiser. Seems the staff at Ring of Fire are on vacation so no new guest list this week so just tune in to the rebroadcast. The Brick TeeVee crew's garden is experiening a bumper crop of zucchini and huge loaves of tasty zucchini bread with our "The Progressive Century Blend" morning brew! Yummy! Our late growing season is finallly letting cukes and tomatoes get going (despite raids by local deer and other critters) and some of our hot pepper plants have yielded nice peppers, so the BTV Salsa is still on! Hope your garden is productive this year, too!
