Salon on Green Flow and media offering to Big Oil


Well, any media is good media, right?

This blog was covered in a Salon exclusive yesterday, which focused on the questionable marketing tactics of Social Media Today (SMT), which syndicates my blog through the site Sustainable Cities Collective.

Seems SMT presented a deck recently to oil giant Chevron about having “access” to such bloggers as myself and NRDC’s Daron Lovaas (click on above slide from SMT deck on “Future Mobility: Building a Community), the international non-profit’s federal transportation policy director.

This reference and image of my blog was done without my permission or knowledge, thank you, as Salon kindly tacked onto the end of the article today. Chevron said it knows nothing about this. No word form Lovaas at NRDC yet, says Salon. 

Back to Murdoch, then.
