Tea Parties – Everywhere but in the news

April 12, 2009

I expressed my frustration a couple weeks ago that the multitude of tea parties being organized by regular citizens and held in cities across the country don’t seem to be getting the mainstream coverage that one would expect a populist movement to receive.  Alas, the movement’s roots are firmly planted in conservatism so the MSM act as if it doesn’t exist.  But how would the majority of print and broadcast media simultaneously and independently decide not to cover such a significant event?  Coincidence?  No, coordination.

    DC Fox News let a tea party recognition cameo slip through and play live today at 11AM. A potentially hour-long segment was summarized in a few seconds saying that “these tea parties are held in protest of taxation, bailouts, and a record high national deficit.”

    Yeah, but it’s FOX news. Happen to read anything in the Washington Post? Bet not – unless they write that the protesters are “right-wing” extremists or are being fed by talk radio.
