Fake Tea Partier
Dale Robertson, the racist nut who many in the media have paraded as emblematic of Tea Party attendees, claims to be a "leader" of the movement. In fact, he is a loner who has been rebuffed by every Tea Party group with which he has associated.Read the rest.
Of course that did not dissuade the liberal media from unquestionably presenting him as the "leader" he dubiously claimed to be. The Washington Post and liberal blog Talking Points Memo both portrayed him as such, despite the fact that numerous Tea Party groups have publicly denounced him (none, as far as I can tell, have backed him).
It turns out his "leadership" is not the only thing Robertson embellished....
As long as we have mainstream media outlets that won't publish the truth, including appropriate retractions, the Tea Party Movement will have an uphill slog. That said, an uphill slog cannot be accomplished.
