Strange New Respect for the Tea Party

Politicians flip flop all the time, and the media seems to be following suit. After initially dismissing the movement and then trying to smear the Tea Party with fake allegations, have you noticed how the media echo chamber is trying to validate the Occupy Wall Street by making comparisons to the Tea Party? Any parallel is particularly inappropriate in that the Tea Party wants less government handouts while OWS demands more.

The Daily Caller noticed another aspect to the coverage:
Mark Meckler, the co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, struck a similar note, saying that when the tea party protests first began, “we were ignored, mocked, and then attacked by the media” and “called ‘Astroturf,’ ‘fringe,’ ‘racists’ and ‘Nazis.’”

“Yet today, the leftist media seemingly cheers for a group of lawbreaking miscreants who have openly committed a variety of illegal acts,” Meckler said.
