9. "Grass Roots Tea Party of Nevada"

Art Gisi likes to joke that he and Cathie Lynn Profant, a co-leader of the Grass Roots Tea Party of Nevada, are "so conservative we make most tea partyers look like left-wing liberals."

Even though it's part of their self-labeled title, any piece that doesn't challenge or at least pursue that attribute is just another exercise of "pretend" journalism. The "Tea Party" was co-opted shortly after its inception by the likes of the Koch brothers and they're nothing more than mouthpieces for the plutocrats. Sure, they may shift their "marketing" to further disguise themselves as Trojan horses, but make no mistake about it. They're merely a way to further corrupt the government.
