Andrea Mitchell Again Paints Tea Party Express' Amy Kremer As Independent Of The GOP

Andrea Mitchell again allowed the Tea Party Express' Amy Kremer to come on her show and paint herself as some sort of representative of a grass roots movement when as I noted after the last time Mitchell had her on the air, that's a bit of a stretch to put it kindly.

MSNBC and CNN who both try to paint themselves as being either "liberal" or "balanced" in their coverage unlike Fox who just doesn't even care what their viewers think, have both continually tried to paint these astroturfers as somehow being "grass roots" and not tied to the hip with the big monied interests that support the GOP, or that anyone should care about a word they have to say, with the exception of Rachel Maddow who's actually done a very good job of calling them out.

Without giving the viewers some background on who's writing checks to support these groups, people like Mrs. Greenspan should quit lying to their audience and letting them believe that it's just everyday citizens organizing that are supporting this astroturf movement that Kremer claims to represent.

We've got real protests going on around the country in America and around the world that our media ignores on a daily basis because of how fed up most people are with our political leadership. Unless you watch a program like Democracy Now, you don't know about most of them.

In the mean time, someone who was married to the man who did countless amounts of damage to our economy is allowed to come on the air and interview a woman who is from a fake grass movement and ask her what she thinks about our current field of GOP primary contenders, as though voters should care one iota what this woman thinks about anything or that she somehow actually has the interests of most of those voters she pretends to represent at heart.
