It's funny to me now, but when I think of Reuters, I remember the impression I had, until this morning, that Reuters was an international news agency of some repute and in which I could have confidence. Not now! I was going to bed last night just as tea parties were getting underway all over the US, from sea to shining sea. Thanks to the internet, I could see for myself those crowds building up.
This morning, this is what Reuters had to say!
"Opposition Republicans seized the chance to rail against what they see as wasteful spending by his new Democratic administration, and some of Obama's grass-roots critics staged "tea party" protests in several U.S. cities."
Well, there were a lot more than "some" at those tea parties. And it wasn't just Republicans as far as I can gather from personal reports all over the internet. And it wasn't just "several" cities! If you look at the map I published in a previous post, you can see the locations and numbers of organised parties.
