My fellow gunnies are ecstatic over Sheryl Attkinson’s list of top astroturfers because the Demanding Mommies topped the list.
Here’s the problem. Scrolling down Attkinson decides to include several science blogs because they are – horror of horrors – pro-vaccine.
I’m sorry, but while I don’t agree with them politically, the skeptical blogs Attkinson mentions are hardly astroturfers. If anything, most of them are just as grassroots as the gunny blogs.
So, I’m sorry Ms. Attkinson, your list is garbage. Your reporting on “Fast and Furious” has been excellent, but your stance on vaccines is coloring your judgement. Worse, you’ve succumbed to the lies and propaganda of the anti-vaxxers who have caused as much death and destruction as the politicians behind “Fast and Furious.”
