The media narrative is that there was an organic, grassroots uprising by concerned citizens.

Don’t believe it. As detailed below, there was a well-organized national and local campaign to get activists to Reed’s town halls for...

Yet, any ambassador cannot help but bring his or her own style and wording to the job.
