    ...the Sterling Heights Event was organized by Michigan Taxpayers Alliance, not the TEA Party.

    WATZ radio in Alpena has a headline on their web site describing the Alpena Tea Party:

    "Tea Baggers Have A Party"

    I emailed the news director and asked him why he does not use offensive head lines to describe the enviromental group trying to stop the clean coal plant in Rogers City.  Don't think I will get a reply.

    The "infiltrators" scare... (none / 0) (#6)

    ... is a win/win for liberals.  Not only are they frankly seeking to edge into Tea Party actions and discredit them, but they make Tea Partiers paranoid about each other.  Since conservatives are only too happy to form circular firing squads (see Free Fepublic), this can be devastating.

    Funny thing is that their AM side carries all the conservative heavy weight voices all day.  Must make those libs in the newsroom just shudder!

    The heat was put on them - the head line is now changed.

    Funny thing is it won't let me link it here - they must have got an earful!!!

    That's not bad, since Livingston County isn't really into protests.

    Just got this reply from WATZ news.

    We were unaware of the phrase's offensiveness until a caller pointed it out earlier this morning.

    It has since been changed to "Tea Party Supporters Rally In Alpena."

    Thanks for your concern.
