Clear The Bench Colorado media coverage at Tax Day Tea Party rallies across the state – updated and continued
Clear The Bench Colorado was well represented at several of the Tax Day Tea Party rallies across the state – Director Matt Arnold spoke at both the Denver and Fort Collins events, and spokes-people (no spokes-dogs, this time) were also at the Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and Grand Junction events.
Although the mass-media (lamestream? LEMMing?) coverage of Colorado’s Tax Day Tea Party rallies was underwhelming at best, and superficial or misleading at worst (just what is it with the mass media obsession with downplaying attendance levels?) several of the state’s more serious and professional journalists provided accurate and insightful reporting on the event(s).
The Colorado Statesman – a nonpartisan weekly covering events of significance in Colorado Politics – profiled the Denver Tax Day Tea Party rally as one of their featured stories (“Tax day rally in Denver steeped in Tea Party discontent nationwide“) in this week’s edition. The Statesman was also one of the few print media publications to accurately depict what was blindingly obvious to anyone in attendance:
Matt Arnold of Clear the Bench Colorado received some of the largest applause. His organization targets Colorado Supreme Court justices who, according to Arnold, uphold attacks against the Taxpayers Bill off Rights. Arnold inspired a “clear the bench” chant as he left the podium.
The Denver Post – the state’s newspaper of record – distinguished itself by appallingly poor coverage of the event, missing or misrepresenting even some of the most basic facts. (Um, 300 attendees? Riiiight)
Fortunately, alternative media leaders Peoples Press Collective were on-scene to provide complete, unfiltered (including video live-streaming) coverage of the event. See for yourself what really happened – remember, if you’re getting your news from the mass media, you’re not getting the news.
