Rachel Maddow and the blog Good As You catch the anti-gay marriage campaign FAKING support in New Hampshire

Check this video out, it's outrageous:

And get this, at the Good As You blog, they show how after two days the anti-gay marriage organization took down the fake anti-gay rights photo Rachel showed above and replaced it with... wait for it... a photo from the New York City march against gay marriage. Um, still not actually showing support in New Hampshire for taking away gay people's right to marry.

It's so important for us to be savvy consumers of media and advertising, and this story really highlights how critical it is to have reporters and bloggers and the media as watchdogs to catch these kinds of tricks and expose them.

I love how Rachel says "Caught You!" at the end.

Yeah. We sure did.


ps- thanks to Kathryn for the heads-up about this!

Rachel Maddow is one of my favorite liberals and I love it when she catches people faking this like this.

And congratulations on becoming an official SCBWI blogger.
