Watch and learn boys and girls, CNN reporter Susan Roesgen demonstrates how a real reporter covers this corporate Astroturf non-event. Congratulations to Roesgen for having the guts to call out these tea bag protesters as the GOP-organized group of right-wing Obama haters that they are. And she reminds viewers that the tea parties were "highly promoted by the right-wing conservative Network Fox."
Hard to expose this fraud any better than this. Terrific job:
The first guy interviewed says Obama is a "fascist" but he cannot explain why. Hmm, maybe because Jonah Goldberg, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and the rest of the clowns at Faux News told him to say this?
The second guy interviewed says he is protesting because he believes in what Lincoln stood for. Pick up a history book, guy. Lincoln presided over the largest expansion of federal power up to that point in our history, and Lincoln imposed the first "income tax" to pay for the Civil War (later repealed).
Clueless in Chicago.
