Howard Kurtz of CNN "Reliable Sources" is a Biased News Critic! So why Bother?
Mr. Kurtz stated that he believes that Fox might have gone a little over the line in their promotion of the Tea parties, but that there is a real legitimate movement out there, and that anytime American Citizens gather, it should be covered.

Internet bloggers have been digging into this Rick Santelli Rant/protest story from the start, because it felt to many progressives a bit forced, phony and rehearsed, to say the least (did you check out Ricky's appearances all over MSNBC the following day?

"BITTER" DOUBLE STANDARDS: WHAT'S the Matter with PENNSYLVANIA?
When Senator Obama was speaking in San Francisco about folks in small town Pennsylvania, he wasn't saying anything new nor anything unheard of. He was talking about some of the same issues raised in the best selling Book, "What's the Matter with Kansas", by Thomas Frank.
