Obama Threatened By "Tea Parties" Counters With Rallies, LA Times Shows Why Old Media Is Dying

L.A. Times refused to report 15k Fullterton anti-tax protest, but features A.N.S.W.E.R.’s anti-AIG/anti-war events before they happen

This is why Old Media is dying. The Los Angeles Times today recycles press releases from left-wing A.N.S.W.E.R. announcing a protest of AIG this afternoon and an anti-war rally next weekend. The paper has no problem serving as advance publicity team for radical Left groups.

Not a single body has shown up for these events yet. But it’s newsworthy to the LA Times.

On the other hand, if 15,000 people turn out to lambaste tax-and-spend politicians in both parties in Fullerton, CA, it’s not news.

It’s a “stunt.”

What media bias? Yeah, that media bias.

Ready for pushback? Eric Odom is organizing. You can also leave comments at the L.A.Times/A.N.S.W.E.R. publicity headquarters here.


Protesters to rally outside AIG in downtown L.A.
10:29 AM | March 16, 2009

Demonstrators plan to rally outside the AIG building today in downtown Los Angeles to protest the giant insurer's decision to pay $165 million in bonuses to key employees. American International Group Inc. recently received the first part of $180 billion in federal bailout funds.

"We're going to be down there with whoever we can get," said Ian Thompson of the Los Angeles chapter of the Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (A.N.S.W.E.R.) coalition. "We're going to be expressing anger and outrage about the new bonuses that were announced, that will be given to the very same folks who helped cause the financial meltdown."

The protest is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. near the intersection of 8th and Figueroa streets. The group also  will help lead an anti-war protest Saturday at noon to mark the sixth anniversary of the war in Iraq. A march is set to start near Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street and continue to Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue.

My Thoughts

Obama and his cohorts must be scared of these "tea parties" that just won't go away and keep on growing larger. He is trying to counter the massive displays of dissension of Obama's economic policies. He is going to have the advantage of the MSM reporting his every move and rally while ignoring the opposition's protests. The opposition must remain vigilant and make the MSM acknowledge our existence.
