If You Liked Pravda's Reporting in the Seventies, You'll Love Legacy Media's Coverage of the Searchlight Tea Party Rally

Jim Hoft catches an uproarious example of misrepresentation by CNN:

Just in case you still trusted the state-run media... CNN [calls this] "At least dozens of people." This is dozens?

"Hundreds of people, at least dozens of people - we haven’t gotten a count of how many people turned out there. We heard Sarah Palin talk about everything about the campaign, to unseat Sen. Reid to what she calls ObamaCare, on the heels of that health care vote and even talking about her definition of her love of America."

Not to be outdone, the Associated Press beclowned itself with a "news" "report" that asked Andrew Breitbart to prove a negative.

Conservative columnist Andrew Breitbart disputed accounts that tea party activists in Washington shouted racial epithets at black members of Congress amid the health care debate, although he didn't provide any evidence.

Evidence that an event never occurred?

Breitbart also failed to provide evidence that a North Korean invasion force never stormed the beaches of Malibu.

This may come as a surprise to A.P., but dozens of video-cameras captured the events in question.

Not one of them captured any sort of epithet.

Put simply, the thousands of breathless reports by the legacy media (a Google search today results in 29,600 hits) never mentioned the complete lack of corroborating evidence.

All of the Democrat puzzle pieces are coming together: we have dozens of unaccountable "Czars" in Washington, a Politburo-style Congress that continually ignores the will of the people, a charismatic demagogue who dismisses and mocks those who dare to oppose his radical agenda, and a state-run media that would make the old Pravda beam with pride.

Legacy media has yet to report upon the documented death threats received by Sarah Palin, because said events do not align with the state's agenda.
