Unsurprisingly, they either a) don't have their facts straight, or b) are being purposely misleading, as this sentence from the article demonstrates:
"The tea parties were promoted by FreedomWorks, a conservative nonprofit advocacy group based in Washington and led by former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey of Texas, who is now a lobbyist."
Fact is, I've never even heard of "FreedomWorks". And I didn't hear the name "FreedomWorks" mentioned at our tea party by anybody, or mentioned in any of the emails I received and exchanged in the two weeks leading up to it.
I mean come on, doesn't the Ledger know by now that we take our orders from Fox News!!?
