Organizations can hire fake advocates who create the illusion of real support for their message. It’s a shady practice called astroturfing that can warp the public perception of anything…even astroturfing.

    What I’ve learned from this show is to trust nobody mentioned by John Oliver

    To me Astroturfing is rubbing my genitals against a plushie of Astro, the dog from the Jetsons.

    I highly recommend it…

    I think the real crime of that first ad about Soda taxes was that she left her trunk open but closed her front door. PICK ONE MOTHERFUCKER. PICK ONE.

    With Trump administration’s new policy which says organizations like the NRA are no longer needed to reveal who their donors are, propaganda tactics like astroturfing are only going to get a lot worse because now every foreign government, every company,every rich person on this planet can pour unlimited amount of money into American politics to make the US government their own bi*ch just like Russia did.

    John Oliver may look like a toucan, but he has the sage advice and wisdom of an ancient British turtle. Keep up the good work!

    Astroturfing is better than birds in the trap but not as good as rodeo

    Per usual, Trump was right about a problem while simultaneously being part of said problem.
