    Anti-union ad offends - Letters, OregonLive.com, OR
    I am completely disgusted by the smear campaign by OregonUnionFacts.com, otherwise known as The Center for Union Facts, which is determined to demonize public employees and their unions.

    Oregonians should know that this is not a local group (just look at the phone number at the bottom of the ad). It is headed by right-wing lobbyist Rick Berman, who, according to the Center for Media and Democracy, 'has built a lucrative career establishing industry-funded front groups' that bash whatever group might make life difficult for those industries (www.prwatch.org/node/4458).
