NRSP: Not Really Serious People

A quick Google News search reveals that the triumphant introduction Thursday of a new astroturf group, the National Resources Stewardship Project, produced exactly zero news stories. I couldn't even find a hit on Canada Free Press.

Someone should explain to NRSP PR honcho Tom Harris that if you're looking for media attention, you shouldn't choose a front man (Tim Ball) who has no credibility and who has made himself a national pariah by suing the biggest news conglomerate in the country (Canwest Global through the Calgary Herald) for an imaginary libel.
