Does Fox News Fuel the Tea Party? (Carl Cameron Chatting with Daily Kos contributor)
The Daily Beast ^ | 07/22/2010 | Steve Friess

Posted on 07/23/2010 7:27:34 AM PDT by Rational Thought

Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron, in conversation at the Netroots Nation convention, said his network blew up the Shirley Sherrod story, that Senate candidate Sharron Angle “always seems confused,” and agreed that his network boosts the Tea Party.

Cameron, speaking to blogger Dante Atkins shortly after Atkins had been interviewed for a Fox segment about the Netroots event, nodded as Atkins repeated comments he made on camera that the Tea Party movement was largely organized by Fox News hosts like Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.

“Tell me about it,” Cameron smirked.

Either this is an erroneous report or "Campaign Carl" should be fired.

Taking this report as accurate, how can Cameron call Angle "confused" while not commenting on a very "confused" Reid (Famous Reid statements; "There are no undocumented workers working in construction in Nevada", "Barack Obama was a light skinned African-American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one")?

Additionally, what is the definition of "boosting the Tea Party"? Reporting major news that other networks have placed a blackout on?

Seems to me (again, if this report is accurate) that Cameron is just another Liberal elitist who is not "fair and balanced", who would fit in better at MSNBC.

Lets say the Tea Party is no longer covered by cable channels and the ABC, CBS’s, NBC etc., are they going away? hmmm. WHat is the point here? Theyve done just fine without a whole lot help from media.

Now I know why every report by Cameron is a lightweight snide filled POS.

Time for the TPM to deny him access. No wonder he made a BIG DEAL out of the demigod wanna be attack on the TPE

So she’s not a polished leftist, the horror!

Been waiting for this kind of “news” to show up!
We can expect more from the media to discredit anything Conservative (racist) and the Tea Party Group.

Watch for it!

I don’t trust Carl Cameron. He “submarined” Sarah Palin during the campaign according to her book. I didn’t personally see it but I trust her comments.

Does CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, et al fuel DU, Daily KOS, Black Caucus, Panthers, NAACP, CAIR, Ferrahkan, media matters, et al?

After that little factious return volley that I couldn't resist, I will now tell it the way it is, the article has it exactly backwards:

The TEA party movement is actually fueled by the left, including all their media outlets and organizations.

The lamesteam media is like all of the other leftist goons and have not yet figured out that TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already.

It's the economy, the deficit, the new taxes, obamacare, and the emerging volley of racism being promoted by obama, holder, the panthers, NAACP, etc.; THAT is what is fueling the TEA party movement.

Of course they would like their "projection" technique to work...attacking the TEA party and accusing racism, and doing the same with FOX news over the Sherrod comedy.

But the bottom line is, SO F***ing WHAT if the TEA party movement is "fueled" by FOX News. What are they supposed to watch? Couric? Gibson? Pulllleeezzzzeeeee.

The idiot left still cannot see that every attack on the TEA party movement only makes the movement stronger. Does anyone think that those idiot panthers threatening to "kill white babies" didn't piss off a bunch of white folks and drive them toward the TPM? Does anyone think that Shirley Sherrod's rant didn't push a lot of folks closer to "their own kind"?

Meanwhile the antics of obama are pushing the left, and the independents, away from the dems.

So as their side is crumbling, and our side is growing in numbers, they pick NOW to go on the attack? How stupid... but then, that is the way libs think...they actually think they are strong enough to take down the TPM.

Now they think starting a "race war" is the way to go to scare the TPM away...LOL...that isn't going to work either. There are a lot of indicators out there that white America is finished running from race. They are standing up and fighting back.

They feel the pressure of November and the panic has ensued. They are lashing out with what has always worked before...race. They feel especially empowered with the "first black president" sitting in the White Party House, and with the black Attorney General refusing to prosecute blacks for anything, and giving the panthers a pass for domestic terrorism.

FOX news is not the creator of the TPM; they (Glen Beck) has spoken at a rally or two, and is going to host the big one in August, but the TPM was reported as news on FOX, not created by FOX.

As far as "fueling" (whatever that means), if announcing when the next rally will be, or covering the story fairly and not just looking for "racists" is fueling the TPM, then so be it.

Now...Carl, Daily KOS, DU, etc...IF FOX IS fueling the TPM, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? It's not illegal...it's not unethical...it's not really any of your business.

It's still a free country, and as long as people love freedom and love America, it will always be a free country.

Freedom

"Tell me about it", smirked Cameron.

Even tough Cameron may have uttered the words above, the descriptive tone attributed to the words is that of Atkins and is his opinion or else his way of deliberately skewing the meaning of what Cameron said.

The meaning of the phrase "tell me about it", usually said to elicit more information, is totally changed when the word "smirked" is inserted in the sentence.

Since Atkins has a horse in the political horse race I tend to take what he says not too seriously.

I always saw his reporting as fairly straight, his answers to questions posed by the newsroom pretty straight-forward. It seemed to me that he at least was trying to make the appearance of being unbiased.

These guys all get ruined in Journ-o-lism school where they’re either assimilated into left-leaning thought or they’re ostracized. They’re taught that it’s the journ-o-list’s job to tell the “truth”, and the “truth” is always slanted LEFT.

Ironically, they’re actively promoting their own demise. A dictatorship doesn’t need a horde of reporters all out competing to break the next big news story, does it.

No.

The more I learn from Beck, the more Fox News reveals itself to be part of the problem.

“I’m looking out for you” Really, what about the marxist progressive takeover of America Bill? Missed that one, didn’t you.

Guess I’ll have to take care of myself, which makes me a Freeper who is happy to join ranks with the TEA Party for restoration of our Constitutional Free Republic.

.......... I believe that CNN ABC CBS CNBC MSNBC NBC and other state run media types are the real fuel for the TeaParty ,,, the corrupt media has driven viewers to Fox in seek of the facts and truth in reporting .

No it wasn't, Carl you lying left-winged dirt bag.
Either this is an erroneous report or "Campaign Carl" should be fired.

Whether the comments are true or not, I personally don't care for them or him. I've never trusted him from day one.

Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck are merely trying to profit from the movement.
