Media Allowed to Cover National Tea Party Convention: Fox, WorldNetDaily, Breitbart

The organizers of the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville have announced which media outlets will get full access to the event. “Everyone from a small town newspaper in Iowa to Fox News has asked for press credentials,” say organizers in a press release. “We have had requests from Canada, England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Norway, Croatia and Japan.” But the lucky winners:

Fox News
Breitbart.com
Townhall.com
The Wall Street Journal
World Net Daily

WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah is also speaking at the convention; other reporters may get access to a “press room” if the venue “would be willing to provide” one.

In the statement, organizers finally answer some of the attacks they’ve received from angry Tea Party activists and former sponsors.

Between last February and the present, Tea Party Nation has seen members come and go.  We have tried to deal fairly with our present and former relationships, however, not without some criticism.  This criticism has been unfortunate and we believe, unwarranted.  However, it is the policy of Tea Party Nation not to focus on past challenges, but to stay focused on the task of advancing the conservative cause and defeating liberalism.

With that in mind, we will not be making any comments regarding former members.

I'm sure the coverage will be very fair. And balanced, also.

If there's one thing absolutely neccessary for a fun & successful tea party, it is the assurance of a safe, secure and hermetically sealed bubble for the participants

First the baggers whine about lack of coverage of their events. Now they purposely restrict media access. WTF?

If these nutcase movements had a solid game plan, they might make some sense, but alas, no. Just racists and extremists frothing at the mouth with fear and hate, their stock-in-trade.

And you people want to take America where? The 18th century? There must be a corner of America somewhere, where you all can play “reinvent the nation” with one another, and leave the rest of us with important things to do, like running the country.
