Watch Sharyl Attkisson's TEDx Talk on Astroturf, Propaganda, and Media Manipulation at the University of Nevada in 2015.
In this eye-opening talk, veteran investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson shows how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages.
Ron Hitzler says
This is without a doubt the most comprehensive and alarming TEDx talks I have ever seen. And one of the scariest realities. We wonder why we have 'the great divide' in the United States. Sharyl Attkisson has once again demonstrated her extreme insights, hard work and talent.
