Some objective MSM reporting of Tea Party rally
Judge for yourselves, but, considering the MSM creds of CBS, I would say this is one of the most journalistic integrity reporting of this I have seen so far. Almost right wing propaganda free!

1. "The rally is sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative front group."
Best line in the report.

3. so, if their numbers (6500) are correct, then what to make of this:
Edited on Sun Apr-17-11 04:45 PM by Gabi Hayes
''Hundreds of pro-union labor supporters are surrounding smaller groups of conservative Tea Party members attending a rally featuring former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.''

so that would mean, at most, about 1700 people, right?

900 to 800

according to DUers who were there, it was about 10 to one, so shouldn't they have said something on the order of 5800 to 600?

you know they had to keep it to "hundreds" of labor supporters, instead of thousands

6. It's more than Just BOOING, the Madison crowd is one huge roar
of a continuous Boo. Man, It does my heart good to see her getting it back in her face.

:kick:

4. Not great, either.
"A little bit less shitty" would be my review.

7. I got an ad for goldman sachs before the clip
interesting placement.

and the audio on Palin makes the counter protesters seem non-existent, or at least quiet and attentive. Her clip is not good, she is yelling and her crowd seems as silent and non-responsive as the others.
