Tea Party Convention Closed to Media


The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports the First National Tea Party Convention next month "will be closed to the press, other than for a limited number of "selected" journalists. No word on who or how many."

"The restrictions apparently apply to the much-anticipated speeches by Sarah Palin and Minnesota's own Michele Bachmann."

1. The word "Quarantined" comes to mind.
This is a disease, after all.

2. Zzzzzz
If they won't let the press in, then let's hope we hear nothing about it.

3. It will be pitched 24/7 on Fuck and hate radio. It will be unavoidable once the "locked out"
media start to comment on the "news" coming from the embedded propagandists.

4. We could always make up stuff.
Most likely it would be nearly 100% correct.

8. sympathetic corporate Pravda press only
All the better to keep us dirty liberals from selecting a 'worst of' selection for Rachael Maddow.

Seriously, could the media just do what they did so well for the anti war movement back in early 2003 and pretend that the teabaggers don't exist?
