MICHAEL SILENCE NOTES A MEDIA REFERENCE TO A “HANDFUL” OF TEA PARTY PROTESTS AND SAYS “LET’S COUNT ‘EM:”
Cincinnati, Nebraska, Tampa, Lexington, Ridgefield, Conn., Raleigh, Orlando, D.C., Staten Island, Pasadena, Boston, Rochester, N.Y., Jacksonville, Minnesota, Cleveland, Columbus, Mo., Little Rock, Ark., Philadelphia, Kansas City, Harrisburg, Green Bay, Salt Lake City, Fullertown, Lafayette, Boise, Monterey, Maui, Yonkers, Utah, Tucson, Phoenix, Hoboken and Chicago, to name a few.
Also, I guess it’s just been a handful of blogs writing about it.
Maybe the writer meant this handful of coverage.
By the way. If you want to follow extensive coverage of the party, one guy sitting in Knoxville, probably from his couch, is doing just that.
Memo to MSM: Google.
UPDATE: And Denver — don’t forget Denver! And St. Louis! And New York!

ANOTHER UPDATE: Cincinnati reader Jeff Riley was at the protest and emails: “I was thrilled at the turnout here in Cincy, however I wasn’t thrilled with the lack of coverage by the local media. Trust me on this, during the Bush Adminstration when they had 4 people show up at the local Federal Building and protest against the war they were all over it. When 3500 (estimated) people show up to protest the bailout they just shrugged. People were pissed and are realizing that the media is doing much more that shilling for Obama, that they are willing participants in the propaganda effort. Every time they do so they lose a bit more credibility and people are turning them out and getting there news elsewhere.”
