What's Mallard raving about today?
Teabaggers, Arizona, Journalism.
First, I do not grant for one moment that journalists have given the Teabaggers a hard time. If it wren't for the incessant media flogging of them and inflation of their numbers during last summer, I doubt the movement would have the legs it has.
Second, 30% of Americans say racial prejudice underlies the Tea Party, so we can't really single out journalists in this regard.
Finally, if you don't want to be perceived as a bunch of racist thugs with paranoid and conspiracy theory tendencies, then sever ties with the people you keep giving speak slots to at your events, because they are racists, paranoids, and conspiracy theorists.
