Progressives Offer $24,000 To Astroturfers Opposing Glenn Beck

Posted: Jan 27, 2010 8:31 PM
Ads like this one are popping up around Craigslist--the progressives are actively recruiting to "counter the hysteria and lies of Glenn Beck and other talking heads." 

A group aptly named Grassroots Campaigns is calling on progressives to "get organized and get activated" by offering them a $24,000 salary in exchange for "work for progress."

According to the job posting, Grassroots Campaigns is "immediately hiring in Boston as well as the following locations: CA, CO, DC, IL, MA, MN, NY, OH, OR, PA, TX, WA."

The job posting also notes past and current clients of Grassroots Campaigns, including Amnesty International, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, the Democratic National Committee, and the Center for American Progress.  Clearly a bunch of winners.

...And yet the people showing up at town hall meetings and tea party rallies were considered the "astroturf" movement?
