Early Coverage of Tax Day Tea Parties

Today was a great day to be an American as people everywhere in this country stood up to big government, reckless spending, and high taxes…and said enough is enough.

New York Times: Tax Day Is Met With Tea Parties

The “Grey Lady” gives a liberal slant to today’s Tea Parties focusing more on the speeches by politicians, then the atmosphere of the events. No comments from people who attended the tea parties in the article. Also…they highlighted that only 200 people showed up in a very rainy Philadelphia, rather than the massive turnouts in New York City, Atlanta, and Sacramento. The Mainstream Media just doesn’t understand this movement….or just is scared to report on it truthfully.

Washington Times: Tax Demonstrators Teed Off

The article handles the tea parties accurately by explaining how the parties were a collaboration of grassroots anger and non-profit groups like “Freedom Works” looking to provide assistance. Also it mentions that the DC Tea Party had 1,000 people show up in the pouring rain.

Fox Forum: Tea Parties-Mission Accomplished

Peter Roff makes a great point in this piece by saying that the tea parties are not represented by right wing lobbyists or radical extremists, such as white supremacists, but rather ordinary, middle class Americans who are angry at having to pay significantly more in taxes each year. So true.

Great job by Michelle who aggregates comments and pictures from tea parties across the country. There was even a reenactment of the original 1773 Boston Tea Party in Sioux Falls, SD.
