Just in case you still aren't convinced there is a media bias favoring the left....
Mark Dziubek of Southington Conn. steps off a bus in Fairfield Conn. on Saturday March 21, 2009 as members of the media wait outside at a AIG executive's home. A busload of activists outnumbered 2-to-1 by reporters and photographers are paying visits to the homes of American International Group Inc. executives in Connecticut to protest tens of millions of dollars in bonuses awarded by the company.
Today we learn that the group which organized and paid for the bus tour is nothing but a front for ACORN, the infamous voter fraud group whose most famous "community organizer" is none other than President Obama.
There are 294 Google News hits for this charade in Connecticut. Tens of thousands of Americans have risen these past few weeks in Tea Party Protests in large and small cities and towns all over this nation and they rate a paltry 492 Google News hits. Proof positive that a rent-a-mob with a bus can garner nearly the same mainstream media attention as that of spontaneous nationwide movement.
I searched the same news photo resource which carried several of ACORN protest photos looking for photos from any of the tea parties. Not a one was listed. In the news business, if you don't have a picture it's like it never happened.
Tired of being ignored? Make some noise!
Blogs and You Tube postings are spreading the message that the Tea Parties are a huge phenomenon. But unless or until that story gets reported on the front pages of your local newspaper and headlined on television the average American will likely never know that a groundswell of opposition is out there waiting for them to join.
So, plan to go to a Tea Party in your area, but more than that write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper and ask why they have downplayed this huge story or ignored it altogether? It's easy to email your local paper. Just check their online web site for information.
If you don't speak up, don't complain when the story is ignored!
