Skip to comments.How the Tea Party turned the media's 'liberal bias'

It's not just the debt debate that the Tea Party caucus succeeded in dragging rightwards; the media, too, marched to its drum
In President Barack Obama's most recent State of the Union address, he vowed to "win the future" by jumpstarting innovation through ambitious government investment in education, research, technology and infrastructure. In the wake of the recent debt ceiling debacle, this rarefied promise has dwindled miserably into its unfortunate acronymic husk: WTF.
While there is plenty of blame to spread around the Beltway for these manufactured debt-ceiling shenanigans, the role of the US media deserves our keen attention. The media and, in particular, their treatment of the Tea Party movement have been a key ingredient in this recipe for political dysfunction.

that’s a first:
the msm being blamed by a socialist paper for being complicit with tea party objectives.
what a load of drivel
the socialists are furious that there’s been any discussion at all of the massive debt and deficits
so they are trying to “re-frame” the whole discussion as though it’s all the fault of the media for allowing the Tea Party to be heard at all
Jon Cary got the same memo, it must have gone out from Soros headquarters
Why no (Barf Alert)?
The Tea Party forced to US media to call them nasty names 24/7, the dirty rats.
The MSM treats the Tea Party fairly.
Who are going to believe, this guy or your own lying eyes???
Just check out the responses to Harry Reid's Tweet on Jobs: @SenatorReid #jobsfirst
Getting laughed off Twitter!!! TWITTER!!!
This article must have been written before the “Tea Party is a Terrorist Organization” meme became the the Dim/MSM Talking Point of the Day. An alternation and more likely explanation for the idea that the Tea Party Movement is getting a fair shake from the the MSM is that it’s just a fabrication - just more Leftist propaganda.
After months of the US media mindlessly parroting fraudulent accusation by the Left that the Tea Party is everything from, racist to terrorists, you NOW want to claim the Media “made” the Tea Party?
How is it possible for you to be this completely ignorant of even the most basic facts? Your article is possibly the stupidest bit of political analysis ever written.
