Newsweek: Tea Party Coverage Isn't Harsh Enough

At Newsbusters, Katie Bell writes:

Newsweek blogger Ben Adler thinks the national media are giving the Tea Parties gentle treatment.

"Unfortunately," Adler wrote in a June 21 post, "what appear to be false notions of objectivity - or perhaps a lack of interest in policy - is preventing that coverage from illuminating what the movement actually represents and what it would do if empowered."

My God -- if the full vision of the most radical Tea Partiers was ever empowered, those radical far right libertarians would cut taxes and shrink government and leave people alone! No wonder Newsweek believes in duty now to fight that future.

(Both here and abroad, sadly.)
