LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Washington’s Oz?

- The Washington Times - Thursday, June 2, 2011

"The Great and Powerful Oz" was really a man hiding behind a false persona. In much the same way, Richard Berman took to these pages ("Collective bargaining is no 'right' " Commentary, March 25) and pretended to be an expert on the minimum wage.

Mr. Berman heads Berman & Company Inc., a lobbying group that uses corporate money to set up nonprofits to disseminate misinformation. In addition to the Center for Consumer Freedom, he's involved in other groups. But Mr. Berman's organizations are merely front groups for big-moneyed special interests. Who is Mr. Berman fronting for here?
