TFP Column: Why The Media IgnoresTea Parties

Once again, the Toledo Free Press has placed their editorial standards at risk by publishing my piece this week on the Tea Party phenomenon going on today. 

After last week's Don Burnard piece however, I felt that a different take on them might be in order. I likewise urge everyone to read some of the letters to the editor in response to that column. 

Mssrs. Pounds and Miller do their normal stellar work and Jim Harpen has an interesting response to the 18% voter turnout in the recent primary election. Aw, what the heck. Take the time to go through the whole darn edition. I know you will find it as worthwhile this week as I did.
