Accuracy in Media

Here’s how you know the anti-tax “tea party” movement, which hits its activist stride tomorrow, has struck a nerve: Both liberal activists and their allies in the mainstream media are working overtime to discredit the movement.


Fox News picked up on a story that has been simmering in the blogosphere for several days now — the news that the Association for Community Organizers Now may try to infiltrate and undermine the anti-tax protests across the country.

WorldNetDaily, meanwhile, recaps the stream of negative press coverage of the protests that has materialized as the grassroots support for the tea parties has become evident. Media liberals were content to ignore the story until it couldn’t be ignored any longer; now that they realize it has staying power, their mission is to mock the protests and raise questions about their authenticity.
