Perhaps Burson Marsteller's interest in green activists dates back to the murder of the publicity company's executive Thomas Mosser by Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. Kaczynski wrote to the NYT (falsely) accusing 'Burston Marsteller' (sic) of whitewashing Exxon over the Exxon Valdez. On searching the Unabomber's tarpaper shack, prosecutors found a copy of Earth First! (21 June 1993) that accuses 'Burston Marsteller' (sic) of just that. Kaczynski sent a package bomb to Mosser's house, which killed him outright.
