How Liberal is my Media

So, we've had almost no coverage of the many often massive antiwar protests over the last six years and yet now some nonsense about tea parties is getting tons of airtime with FOX practically sponsoring the events.

And still, I can't see much more than a few hundred people at any of the b-roll footage. I've been to bigger protests to keep the Friends spin off Joey on the air. Maybe, the real lesson could be that every good protest should be a double entendre.

Here's my quote of the day from one such tea party: "Government -- to be honest with you, and this will probably be misquoted, but on 9/11, I think they hit the wrong building. They should have gone into the Capitol building, hit out, knocked out both sides of the aisle, we'd start from scratch, we'd be better off today."

And suddenly FoxNews feels the need to defend the right of protest. You have got to be enjoying the neo-con squirm.
