Fenton Commo, Again

You all fondly remember Fenton Communications for its anti-BPA crusade which was composed of the usual deceptions and asinine charges.  (Some people bought into it.  They're called "reporters.")

Well, Fenton's back.

Another grantee of Tides is the Adbusters magazine, which is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after Arab Spring protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. The Adbusters website serves as a central hub for Occupy's planning. 

MoveOn.org, which has joined Occupy, is funded by Tides 

Fenton Communications, an extremist-led outfit that crafts the public relations strategy of Tides grantees, has come under newfound scrutiny after WND published a series of exposés tying it to Occupy Wall Street. One of its senior employees represented the anti-Wall Street march past millionaires' homes in New York last month.

The linked article states that there will be direct-action (blockades, disruptions) from the "OWS" crowd; Fenton will provide spin.

One other note:  John F*n Kerry's current wife, Heinz, is also a major donor to Tides Foundation, as is Soros.
