MoveOn.org and SEIU behind Chamber of Commerce hoax

So, MoveOn.org and SEIU are behind the climate change hoax perpetrated against the Chamber of Commerce? I wish I could say I was surprised.....

"The devil does not change overnight. Someone or some organization sent out ahoax press release "from the US Chamber of Commerce" stating that the chamber no longer opposed the Waxman-Markey bill. As most hoaxes go, it needed a victim to fall for it.The venerable news agency Reuters fell for the hoax and published a story that went instantly into the Google News feed. The press release linked to a fake chamber webpage which featured links to official Chamber sites. The spoof page features a short National Press Club speech, purportedly by Chamber President "Tom Donahue". "

"Update: Politico says some group called AVAAZ.org was behind it. Climate legislation supporters say AVAAZ Action Factory is responsible for the release. The group, known for its activist media stunts, has not returned calls for comment. But a post on the group’s Web site says has plans to “make this the worst Monday ever for the anti-climate PR machine at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "

Things are getting ugly out there folks. These people will stop at nothing to annihilate their enemies.
........Gird your loins.
