Looks like former tobacco spin doctor Doug Goodyear’s DCI Group is getting with the times and letting loose it’s controversial TCSDaily project. As many know, the ExxonMobil sweetheart TCSDaily has been a bastion of the climate change denial movement for quite some time now. You also may remember that DCI Group was embroiled in a bit of controversy lately over a YouTube Al Gore spoof video they produced and posted under the guise of 29-year old amatuer filmmaker.
According to the Nov. 1, ’06 edition of O’Dwyers Weekly PR insider newsletter (of which DeSmog is a big fan), the “DCI Group, a brass knuckled Republican PR firm in Washington, has sold its TCSDaily online journal to editor Nick Schulz. According to the TCS, “previous sponsorship agreements have expired” and that “updates about the transition in owenership will soon be available.” TCS recieved corporate funding from ExxonMobil and General Motors in the past. It would be very interesting to know which TCS sponsors “expired” their funding.
