Why isn't the MSM playing tapes of the Tea Party from 2009 and 2010???

The Repugs applauded the violent and disruptive behavior then. Why aren't they being reminded by the MSM of the raucous town halls in which every Democrat was harassed,threatened and systematically interrupted according to a playbook designed by American's for Prosperity and other Koch funded astro-turf faux outrage groups? Back then it was "concerned citizens justifiable anger." Now that we are protesting outright corruption we are "the mob." And the MSM plays along.

The media better start confronting this asshole and stop treating politics like a sporting event designed for ratings. Khashoggi's brutal death was a warning shot to all media and a trial balloon for Trump. If the MSM does not start getting tougher with him and every asshole Republican they risk being the next Khashoggi.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

1. p2p

The media works for corporations. They report what is in the self interests of their employer, thus themselves. Want better reporting, support PBS and NPR. imo

4. The US corporate media is owned by the 1%.

And THAT is the main reason for the lack of actual coverage.
