Did CSI smear the Tea Party??? (depicts protestors as cop-killers)

The plot's weird..but briefly, a bunch of bombs go off at a police funeral, killing and injuring several officers. A piece of a cell phone, which was used as the bomb trigger, is found, and the phone is traced back to a "patriots" group...the police interrupt the meeting, which is staged, with flags, banners and signs, to, IMHO, resemble a Tea Party demonstration.

Indeed, the speaker, when the cops enter, is talking about "taking back our country" and utters the phrase "speak truth to power" ( now where have we heard that before..hmmm?)

Anyone else see it?

As soon as the scene with the “right wing” meeting came on I turned the channel. I knew what was coming and sure enough they were depicted as a bunch of violent rednecks. Feh!

Just Propaganda - ho hum -

Too bad they didn’t base it on reality - a few bombs go off - and are traced to a close frind of he President.

Media is at war with us. People need to accpt that.

I thought so. But that speaking truth to power line is straight out of the democrat radical’s play book, too. They used it first, all during the election in 08. Long before Beck started using it.

Anyway, I was a bit put out with their misguided depiction of the group. But, hey, Justin Bieber was a member, so I think everyone could tell this was a fantasy-land scenario. LMAO.

What do you expect?

Law and Order portrays NRA members as gun fanatics and killers...

I started to watch it and saw that Fringe was on. Glad I watched Fringe instead.

I’m so sick of this kind of crap.

Friend’s don’t let Friend’s WATCH TV. Every time you watch a TV show you are boosting their ratings and indirectly Supporting Communists and Terrorists Worldwide.

Right with you!! I N E V E R watch ANYTHING made for TV

The expectation I have (consistently accurate), is that the MSM in whatever way possible, at ANY time WILL subvert the media and covertly, or otherwise, corrupt the message

Sell your toothpaste somewhere else!!

I don’t doubt it... one episode portrayed Bush as a war criminal.

If you listen closely to the statements or plots on almost ALL of the shows on CBS you will hear anti-conservative words.....CBS is totally progressive. It is a shame for me because most of the shows I have enjoyed are on CBS. I stopped watching The Good Wife because of the show that belittled openly Sarah Palin. I get sick of entertainment being turned political....I want to escape from the worries of life by being ENTERTAINED, but, NO....liberals have to push their agendas in your face at every opportunity....look at Corben testifying on immigration issues in Congress....what a joke...but, then, that fits because he is talking to a bunch of comedians anyway.

Just like ABC News (Dianne Sawyer) using a White House produced video in her “news” story about Obamacare

Try Jericho, as recommended by Chuck Baldwin...

Probably can find it online...and it occasionally can be found on some of the cable channels...

(I voted (potus) for Chuck Balwin vice Ron Paul in’08...)

Remember... when watching ANYTHING on TV: (including so-called news shows)

IT'S FICTION!!!!!

And you can always change the channel, or turn it off if you don't like what you see.

Yes, and it’s not surprising and they’re not the only ones. Law and Order is another. They’re taking political pot shots every chance they get. Sneaky leftist tactics.

One can see the snakes slowly but surely slithering around us.

NCIS and CSI are the only two shows that I enjoy watching on a semi-regular basis now that The Unit is off the air (and was going downhill anyway).

I saw CSI last night. Had similar thoughts as you.

I’m pretty sure last night’s episode will go down as when CSI “jumped the shark” if it is any indication of the future direction of the show.

Leave it to CBS to put politics ahead of their viewer base. Do they really think leftist kooks want to watch a show like CSI? IMHO, they’re basically telling their core audience to change the channel. Good luck with that strategy.

I also don’t like the direction they seem to be taking Nick’s character. He was somewhat of a counterpoint to the wishy-washiness of some of the others. Now it looks like the character will be doing a bunch of whining, navel gazing and hand-wringing in future episodes. Blech.

And that Justin “Stuned” Bieber can’t act his way out of a paper bag. Totally not a believable character.

IMHO, if this is their future direction, they’d be better off ending the show while it’s reputation is intact enough to sell the reruns. The way it’s looking, they’re going to kill the show to the point that no one will remember why they used to watch it.

I hate to say it gang but it seemed more towards the skinheads rather than the Tea Parties. Besides it's not the tea parties setting off bombs or beating up people as in SEIU etc.

I like CSI, it's one of the few series I do.

By the way anyone catch Detroit 187? Michael Imperioli from Sopranos is in it. Was pretty good, I thought.
