The Demonization Of The Tea Party Movement
Once upon a time, news anchors at least attempted to conduct themselves in a professional manner. But on election night 2010, quite a few of the anchors on the various news networks threw all standards of professionalism right out the window and did everything they could to demonize the Tea Party movement. As you will see below, Tea Party candidates were not just called “wacky”, “kooky” and “extremists” on Tuesday night.
On MSNBC alone, Michelle Bachmann was repeatedly asked if she was “hypnotized” as the news anchors openly laughed at her while she was being interviewed, and there was a roundtable discussion which went on for an extended period of time about how Rand Paul, by himself, was going to cause a massive worldwide economic depression. If MSNBC even had an ounce of integrity left they would fire the whole team of anchors that covered election night, but we all know that is not going to happen. The truth is that the establishment is scared to death of the Tea Party movement now, and the executives at these various networks will almost certainly be directing their news people to demonize prominent Tea Party politicians more than ever.
During the 2010 campaign, the news media generally treated Democrats and establishment Republicans with a great deal of respect, but it was open season on Tea Party candidates. If you were running for office under the Tea Party banner, suddenly it became acceptable for the media to refer to you as a “bitch”, a “witch” or even a “Nazi”. The establishment is not even trying to hide the hatred that it has for those who love liberty, freedom and a more limited government any longer. Posted below is video of the MSNBC interview with Michelle Bachmann on election night. It was absolutely shameful how the MSNBC anchors treated her.
