pic.twitter.com/p7jglVZoNXThe AFL-CIO bused in protesters from Boston, Ohio and other out-of state to the Capitol in Charleston today to make it appear as if 7,000 West Virginians were up in arms over the Republican Legislature's attempt to straighten out 80-plus years of union bosses running the Legislature.

Dave Gutman of the Charleston Gazette knew that this was an Astro-Turf rally. He tweeted it.
Gutman failed to report this in the Gazette's online story on the rally. They did quote Rich Trumka -- who never lived in West Virginia -- decrying "out of state corporations."
This is hilarious. Never thought I would live to see the day when the AFL-CIO couldn't get enough West Virginians to protest in Charleston.
Because something is happening
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Gazette?
