and they were talking about covering the tea parties on Wed. They brought up an interesting point. Do you think the main stream media (cnn,msnbc, abc, cbs...ect) will cover this? Cover it fairly (or will they claim all in attendence are R crazies)?
Many of you will say this isn't a news event. I disagree. This looks like it will be a fairly significant, country wide protest. Whether you agree with their stance or not you have to admit this looks to be a LARGE group of AMERICANS who don't like the FISCAL decisions being made. I don't think they will cover it extensivly and what they DO cover will be spkoen of with disdain and disrespect for he views held by those doing the protesting.

I am sorry I must not have been clear enough. I think it's news. I don't think that THEY will necessarily think it's news, or that if it is, it is worthy of their disdain. I do NOT think the main stream media follow your belief that news is news when it comes to political news.

Because your answer implied that the afore mentioned stations cover news fairly. They don't. and unless you have been living under a rock for the past 2 yrs you know this to be true. Now, to give credit where credit is due, they DO cover sensational current events and celebrities pretty equally, but in NO way can anyone consider the political coverage fair. Anything to do with republicans is n the best case scenario dismissed and in the worst case, out right ridiculed and mocked. I think this is significant news (if as large as it looks to be) and I wonder whether they will cover it. And I am not sure of the "attitude" you are subscribing to me, I simply asked if you had been living under a rock. No expletives or attitude just a simple observation.
