WaPo gives Tea Party leader a platform from which to duck your questions (again)
Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER
Just how often is the Washington Post going to turn its web page over to Tea Party leaders to allow them to say whatever they want, without challenge from a moderator, reporter, or editor?
Last week, as you may recall, the Post gave the Tea Party Patriots' Ralph Benko a "Live Q&A session," which he used to not answer reader questions.
Today, apparently concerned that it has been ten whole days since it last handed a Tea Party leader un-moderated, unedited space on its web site, the Post hosts Tea Party Express Chairwoman Amy Kremer. And, unsurprisingly, Kremer is using that opportunity to repeatedly declare that the Tea Party believes in fiscal responsibility and that they want to extend the Bush tax cuts -- without once offering a specific example of any spending they'd cut in order to accomplish those two things.
