Letter to Romenesko
From DAVID LARTER: Not sure how the Washington Post, New York Times, Oregonian and a bunch of other newspapers would feel about having their A1s doctored for a political video sponsored by some agenda group in DC called Free Market America.
Anyway, the funny thing about this video is it talks about bullying in DC and “regulations only lobbyists can understand” but a quick Google search reveals that “Free Market America” is really Americans for Limited Government, a think-tank of sorts out of Fairfax that spent nearly $100K to retain D.C. lobbying firm Aduston Consulting. Ironic.
This only comes up because the group’s video is posted on Drudge Report as if it were a link to a news story. It kind of makes me mad that they faked the A1s of so many newspapers. It’s misleading.
