Tea Parties, Media AWOL

A recent Investors Business Daily editorial names the reason the major media are giving scant coverage to the Tea Party protests taking place around the country.
But the real reason the major media aren't interested in these protests is that they don't agree with them. In the final analysis, these affairs are really taking issue with the political party they helped elect without hiding bias in the last election.

That's why a small scrum of Acorn-financed wackos on a bus tour to intimidate AIG execs last weekend made the news while the tea parties didn't.

But unlike the staged, sparsely attended Acorn event, the tea parties are national, growing and indicative of a shift of public sentiment. If proof is needed, one need look no further than the attention the protests are getting from the Obama administration.
Yet more evidence, though we are long past needing it, that the major 'news' outlets are more anti-freedom than the politicians they have a responsibility to watchdog.
