John Oliver: Astroturfing

John Oliver: ‘Astroturfing’ is not a new teen trend where kids have sex with artificial grass while sucking on Cascade pods.  In this jaw-dropping episode, John Oliver exposes the practice of ‘astroturfing’ in which fake groups and charities  hiding behind deliberately misleading names, affect real life issues.  If you see a charity soliciting funds under the name; ‘Citizens for Sea Lion Advancement,’ make certain it isn’t funded by killer whales.
