Lib Media Goes on Attack: Posts Fake Crowd Video – Calls Tea Party Protesters “Radical”
UPDATE: Several commenters say the CBS video is real but the protester is carrying an outdated sign.
Tax Day is Monday and that means the state-run media was on the attack this weekend.
CBS posted fake video of tea party counter-protesters yesterday in Wisconsin.
CBS posted video of a crowd shot from an earlier pro-union rally to make it look like the capitol grounds were thick with anti-tea party protesters in Madison yesterday.
Free Republic reported:
I caught the CBS News evening report tonight for the first time in about 2 decades. They led off with a report of Sarah Palin’s speech in Wisconsin, and they of course provided liberal spin.
They claim there were far more liberals (i.e. union thugs) than Tea Partiers (claiming the thugs surrounded the smaller Tea Party crowd).
But something caught my eye during the report, specifically when they did a pan of the “liberal crowd”…but they pulled a Dan Rather by using video footage from some liberal rally prior to the April 5th Wisconsin Supreme Court election.
How do I know this? Well, if you go have a look at the video in the link above, pay close attention at the 18 second mark. There is a campaign sign being held by a liberal saying to “Vote Klappenburg on April 5th”.
And the AFP has a special way of describing fiscal conservatives, via Power Line.
VIDEO: April 15 was tax day in the United States, and Tea Party radicals used it to stage demonstrations across the country, including near the site of the original Boston Tea Party revolt of the colonial era.
With reporting like this you’d almost think the media was biased against the tea party, huh?
