I shouldn’t have been surprised when I picked up the (Boston Globe-Democrat, as Graham calls it) this morning–the day after thousands of BOSTON-area citizens gathered at BOSTON Harbor for a BOSTON Tea Party to protest (in part) the taxpayer abuse by our BOSTON-based state government…and found a single local story in the BOSTON paper. Buried on page A16 there was a small AP story with the dateline “Frankfort, KY.”
As Graham says, the AP missive repeats the Left’s talking points about the genesis of the tea parties (promoted by Dick Armey the lobbyist!). He concludes:
Here’s the Boston Globe-Democrat’s model for journalistic success:
Ignore a national story inspired by local Boston history for as long as possible;
Refuse to cover the story when it becomes local;
Misreport the story with a wire report from Kentucky;
Then wonder why you’re losing $1 million a week.
