Two Three more blurbs about the Cincinnati Tea Party.
From the News Busters site:
I guess Americans protesting the president’s policies just isn’t newsworthy when there’s a Democrat in the White House.
As for why it’s important to get the news media out to see everyone at these rallies?
SO WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON? An intrepid reader sheds considerable light on the subject. She wrote Lauter and got a . . . somewhat different response. One that denigrated the rally as a “promotional event for radio personalities.” The letter, which begins with the same bland boilerplate as the letter quoted above, ends this way:
But while the issues involved are important, rallies by themselves are seldom newsworthy. In an area the size of southern California , there’s a rally, demonstration or march practically every week somewhere, particularly when a political campaign is under way. We’ll make sure that all sides in the debate get covered fairly, but I think there are better ways to do that than by covering promotional events for radio personalities.
This rally is not being held so some “decider” behind a desk can bury this in the society section. But rather a place for people where they can be heard and seen for the political tone deaf.
Then take that voice to the ballot box.
