Some Tea Partiers Note Slight Disparity In Media's Attitude Towards Themselves, Occupy Wall Street

Via Networked blogs:

But only a slight difference.

While reporters at first didn’t always cover tea party rallies, Russo said, a California newspaper has recently been putting stories about the Occupy Wall Street on its front page.

“The Sacramento Bee actually had a front-page story before the rally, telling people where it was and what time it was,” Russo said.

...

Mark Meckler, the co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, struck a similar note, saying that when the tea party protests first began, “we were ignored, mocked, and then attacked by the media” and “called ‘Astroturf,’ ‘fringe,’ ‘racists’ and ‘Nazis.’”

“Yet today, the leftist media seemingly cheers for a group of lawbreaking miscreants who have openly committed a variety of illegal acts,” Meckler said.

The media is always going to be kind to its precious lefties, but that doesn't mean they themselves are lefty. Oh dear no.

Thanks to lu.
