WaPo Tea Party Support Rising

I told you just a couple of days ago that the Gallup headline of a decline in Tea Party popularity was misleading.

The misleading headline, ignoring the details of the poll, was picked up far and wide, Congrats @Gallup for inspiring these 5 misleading anti-Tea Party headlines.

The Washington Post yesterday, however, revealed...

The Week - Gallup Tea Party 9-26-2013

I covered earlier the negative spin Gallup put on its recent Tea Party polling.  What showed a stable support/opposition over the last two years — including a drop in opposition – was spun as a negative only by comparison to three years ago.

Gallup could have titled its report “No real change...

Gallup Tea Party Support Chart 9-26-2013

That’s not the headline you will see, of course.

Instead, Gallup headlines its story about its most recent polling to emphasize the negative about Tea Party support, Tea Party Support Dwindles to Near-Record Low.

But it you look at Gallups chart, it shows a 2% drop in support for...

House votes to defund Obamacare

That is not, of course, how the media frames the narrative.

The narrative relentlessly is that Republicans want to shut down government.

We’ll see how this plays out (I think I know).

Via CBS News:

House Republicans advanced a bill on Friday that would continue funding the government at current spending levels for nearly three...

It happens in just about every mass shooting or terrorist event.  The initial media reports are inaccurate, yet those hurried inaccuracies feed a political narrative that is hard to break even after the facts are “corrected.”

In the Newtown shooting, the wrong person was identified as the shooter, and the weapons used...

I am so sick of people like Daily Beast author Patricia Murphy smearing Republicans like Ted Cruz.

She did it in a very slick way, managing to focus her article about Cruz at The Daily Beast on the word “creepy” so that even if the substance was not harmful to Cruz, the...

There is full blown Democratic furor over Tuffy the Rodeo Clown. The incident is being portrayed as racially motivated, and the repurcussions have been severe.

Tuffy (Facebook support page here) has been fired and banned for life from the Missouri State Fair, the announcer has resigned, the rodeo association is requiring sensitivity...
