More from the deceit industry

You may recall my post in which I vigorously plugged Teresa Neilsen Hayden's Common Fraud, which wrapped up with the memorable expression “Deceiving us has become an industrial process.” She talked about an advocacy website with a hidden agenda; I elaborated on why it was so scary.

TNH is back, alerting us to a Rational Grounds post which borrows her memorable phrase as its title to provide a festival of links to information about “astroturf” — fake grassroots advocacy.

All stuff worth reading — even my little post — but if you don't have time for ’em all, at least check out Common Fraud, which is a classic.
