MSM is MIA on Main St. Movement

For the last two years the establishment media has treated the Tea Party like the biggest thing since sliced white bread. Every time three or more people, bespangled with teabags, carrying misspelled signs bemoaning imaginary assaults on "their freedoms" assembled, the media was there -- 24/7 -- with cameras rolling on a continous loop. But the biggest, most sustained gathering of Americans fighting against real infringements on long held rights has been mainly ignored.

And it's not just in Wisconsin. Citizens have amassed in public protests in Ohio, Indiana, DC, and Florida, to name a few and the media issues their trademark collective yawn. They prefer to discuss serial fabulist James O'Keefe's latest deceptively edited hit piece -- at great length. And even when they do cover the protests, they slant to story to make the protesters the villians.

This is what happens when you have six rich white guys in control of the information delivery system. Nothing is going to change until we break up the media monopolies.

Thanks for the encouragement. Now the question is, what can we do about it?
