In a lengthy profile by Linton Weeks in the Style section of today’s Washington Post, Fenton Communications founder David Fenton shows how some ‘60s-era political activists have been able to go corporate without selling out.

Some interesting periods in Fenton’s career, as highlighted by the article, include handling publicity for Rolling Stone in the mid-‘70s and representing Abbie Hoffman in 1980 when Hoffman turned himself in to authorities following time spent as a fugitive after his conviction for dealing cocaine.

Today, Fenton’s clients include a number of anti-Iraq war groups and an increasing amount of environmental work, including a forthcoming campaign from the Stonyfield Farms yogurt company called ClimateCounts, which the article says will tout the use of cellphones for buying products from environmentally responsible companies.
