Hate to Give Them Credit but.... (0.00 / 0)
When you watch the local news reports about the rally, most of them were so exremely short the teabag crowd ended up getting almost equal time (or even more than that in one case). Very few of our elected officials were quoted - meanwhile the biker guy wearing the US flag headband was shown numerous times in the same report - screaming about defending "the best health care system in the world!"

News operations are broke these days. They take the easy way out. The "money shot" of two people screaming at one another is really all they need. There really isn't much reporting going on...For example, I didn't see one report mention that we substantially outnumbered them or any shots of some of their more ridiculous signs (the one with the swastika comes to mind). Doing so would have given people a sense of what really happened.

I did like the report on KUT - where a woman is going off on how Obama supporters haven't read the reform bill, but when questioned the woman had to admit that she herself hadn't read it. "Well, no I haven't read it...but I do wath the news late at night!"
