Abstract:

"From the tea parties to healthcare and climate change, America's conservative citizens revolted against President Obama's reform agenda. But just how real were the roots of this supposedly grassroots uprising? Was it, in fact, an example of 'astroturfing'? -- The practice of manufacturing citizens groups for the purpose of delivering corporate messages. Curious to find out, Austrialian filmmaker Taki Oldham went undercover to investigate. What he found was astroturfing on a scale greater than he could have imagined, threatening not only the health of American democracy, but that of its citizens and the planet as a whole."--Pkg. back cover.
