The Teabaggers’ ‘Press Blackout’

I trust you know that there is a big teabagger convention coming up next month, featuring the Dingbat Diva. and that the teabaggers had announced there will be a press blackout for the event.  They lied.

teabagger Having previously announced that the National Tea Party Convention would be closed to the press, organizers announced yesterday that they would reverse course. However, the Nashville Post reports that only five media organizations will receive credentials for the entire convention, and they all conveniently happen to be right-wing outlets:

The five approved outlets are: Fox News,,, World Net Daily and The Wall Street Journal. All five are widely considered to be Right-leaning organizations.

The press release explains that the requests for credentials have been overwhelming and that to preserve the nature of the event they are limiting press availability… [emphasis original]

It’s not that they don’t want press coverage.  They don’t want HONEST press coverage.
