Can’t believe we missed this one

The Associated Press used Tennesseans Against Teen Drinking, our opponents, as an example of an “astroturf” PR campaign in an article last October. The PR industry — among other groups — has condemned this practice for years.

Read the AP article.

Just so we’re clear, Red White and Food is sponsored by the Tennessee Grocers & Convenience Store Association. Our goal is to give retail food stores the option of selling wine in places where voters have approved package sales. And, we prefer natural grass to astroturf.

    This IS Astroturf. That is, you get money from the gas stations and grocery stores to run your Red White and Food campaign. You certainly aren’t getting any donations from wine drinkers.

    This blog, and your whole campaign, are so full of half-truths, unfinished studies, concealement, ommitted information, and even DELETED POSTS.

    Astroturf at it’s finest!
