Last night I watched coverage of the TEA parties by Fox News and then hopped over to MSNBC to see what Keith Olbermann would say about it.
Fox’s coverage seemed to be “fair and balanced”, while Olbermann was absolutely caustic in his coverage. I have never watched Countdown show. Over the past months I have heard Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin talk about Olbermann’s political bias and how it comes out in his show.
After hearing Rush Limbaugh attemtping to describe “teabagging” per the Urban Dictionary, I (unfortunately) looked up the definition on the ‘net last night. On a whim, I went to MSNBC’s site this morning and listened again to Olbermann’s coverage.
Having read the definition, I was absolutely disgusted with Olbermann’s voluminous couched references to the act in his coverage of the TEA parties. He was equally vulgar in his choice of comments by the TEA party participants that he twisted to make them appear to say things they were definitely NOT saying.
For this reason, TEA party supporters should do all they can to refuse to wear the label of “teabaggers” and assembling as “teabaggers”.
I don’t know why I should be amazed at this. However, it’s an answer to a prayer I’ve had for some time: Lord expose biases and connections.
