^^^The news media publicized the Tea Party from the very beginning. That was open, no, it was blatant. The Occupy movement was buried as long as possible, and that too was blatant. There was no conspiracy, just the same old same old. False facts you make up yourself are the mental equivalent of tin foil hats however.
First, the comparison of news coverage of OWS and first Tea Party demos is meaningless without comparing the events. It is foolish to assume that they were equally newsworthy and draw conclusions about bias in media coverage. Second, even this source has to concede that the Tea Party soon got a media champion, whereas the Occupy movement was blacked for far longer than the first week. And the official excuses about the suppression of the movement are dutifully relayed without the slightest effort at critical judgment.
The ability to paste a link is not the same as the ability to analyze a tendentious source.
