Media ignoring tea parties

You know the old philosophical question:  If a tree falls in an empty forest, does it make a sound?  The media is trying an experiment to answer that question:  If huge protests take place across America, but the media refuses to cover them, do they count?

Another interesting question will be, how will the media cover these protests when they finally get too big to ignore?  In that vein, please be sure to attend your local tax day tea party on April 15 and let your voice be heard.

    Interesting to compare the media coverage of the tea parties with the 20 media vans that turned out to cover the busload of ACORN employees touring AIG executive homes.

    If you can’t make it to a local ‘tax day tea party’…send in your tea bag.

    Everyone! View Thomas’ link! Now that is how I want to see our conservatives in Congress speak! That’s how it is done!

    In my dreams I could only be half as effective a speaker as that fellow.

    Brilliant!

    Perhaps . . . tea bags should also be sent to local TV stations and newspapers. Why stop there: send them to CNN and MSNBC and ABC and CBS — and even NPR!

    Maybe we need to hold the protests in front of the New York Times building, or the local equivalent. If we shut down their operation for a few hours, they might just notice it. (Of course, I could be wrong, given their circulation figures lately.)

    Thanks for the link Thomas – spot on!

    The comments were just priceless on this link as well.
    Hannan just made a guest appearance on the Glenn Beck Show.

    I think it’s a perfect combo – 1 LIBERTY STAMP 1- TEA BAG

    Get your addresses lined up, it will be impossible for the media to ignore a million tea bags.
