Manufacturing the discourse

In Uncategorized on November 19, 2011 at 10:59

This is an article from MSNBC about a memo outlining the need for corporate control of the OWS discourse. It illustrates not only plans to exert influence on the movement as a whole, but to also target individual leaders within the movement and politicians who express support for the movement with what will essentially be smear campaigns. The strategy starts with a $850,000 budget just for preliminary research and opinion polling in order to find the best routes for manufacturing discourse. Make sure to check out the video at the bottom of the page.

Here is a link to a PDF of the memo:http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/msnbc/sections/news/CLGF-msnbc.pdf
