Here is the picture.
I am sure we have all heard of the various "Tea Parties" going on around the nation. Well, maybe not. It seems that even with hundreds (in a few cases thousands) turning out at individual events they are only getting local coverage. The "Instapundit," Law Professor Glenn Reynolds blogs about them every week. Here is one such blog post and here is another on the 4,000 in Orlando this weekend.
Don Surber blogs here about Connecticut.
While it will probably have no impact on Representative Barney Frank, current events are starting to impact the poll numbers of our neighbor, Senator Chris Dodd. That and his special home loans and his cottage in Ireland. Flip-flopping on who gave AIG a hallway pass on the bonuses didn't help either.
But, back to the Press. If they won't cover the Tea Parties, why would such people buy the newspapers? This is not a good situation for the Press in the US and thus for Democracy in the US.
