"Something You Should Know About Me..."

Via genuine AoS Commenters Deety and Tasker, a great catch.

Chad Henderson actually disclosed that he was a partisan paid to post "advocacy" things on social media.

Click on the tweet and blow the picture up.

So who's the bad guy here? Chad Henderson was not coy about his passionate support of Barack Obama, or his volunteer (???) position with OFA.

And here, he says "Something you should know about me..." and then discloses he's paid to post advocacy stuff.

I'm often labeled "the guy who always talks about politics" and it normally has negative effects lol so I'm here to clear things up: If you were to hang out with me one night and you'll see (sic) I'm not that obsessed with politics at all. Yes, I do post political stuff on here and other social networking sites. But it's for a good reason. For one, I think it's good if people get some insight into the world they live in. Secondly, I work for an organization that pays me quarterly to posts (sic) the political stuff as "advocacy" (so it's kind of my job).

All emphases added. And the (sic)'s, of course.

WTF, MEDIA? Your big ObamaCare Poster Boy, who screamed to the world on social media he had "enrolled" in ObamaCare, actually admits he's paid to post "political stuff" on social media as "advocacy" and it's his fault you got punked?

Maybe next time you should do a little more looking into things than None At All.

Oh wait-- skepticism is the official media position for conservative claims. Progressives are deemed presumptively truthful.

And conservatives, we all know, are always pushing their agenda for political reasons. Or because they're paid by the Koch Brothers.

But progressives, on the other hand, are never paid by Unnamed Shadowy Secret Advocacy Organizations.

They just speak from the heart.

Right?

More: OFA reported his big win, and then Chad Henderson screencapped that social media report and propagated it himself.


That screencap:

Is the media going to ask any Extraordinarily Obvious Questions here or are they afraid of what the answers might be?

via @912gauge, @nykensington. I imagine both are being paid for their advocacy tweets by an unnamed Shadowy Organization.
