Convention Coverage brought to you by Big Oil???

In case anyone missed it, ExxonMobil will be sponsoring the CNN, CBS and the National Journal's coverage of both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.

And just in the nick of time, the Exxon Mobile Citizen Action Team (CAT) issued its summer newsletter.

The ExxonMobil program that provides information on public policy issues and encourages employees and retirees in the United States and those citizens living abroad to get involved in issues that affect our business, families and communities. With nearly 100,000 U.S. employees and retirees providing representation in every congressional district, the ExxonMobil family is an important political force and a vehicle for positive change. By harnessing our collective strength, we can make a difference through the elections process, lobbying and grassroots communications.

Isn’t it nice seeing a corporation take an active role in democracy?

We already have an administration sponsored by Exxon. I guess we shouldn't be surprised they want to get in on the ground floor with the next administration.

It's scary, but not as scary as their environmental spin campaign:

Exxon is green???

Fat chance!
