Media Conspire to Suppress Republican Turnout

Reading Time: 1

St. Louis’s KSDK.com is doing its fair share to suppress the Republican voter turnout. They’re pumping a handful of counted votes to give the impression that Obama is walking away with the national popular vote:

Here’s the scam. Only 42 votes have been counted in a country of 150 million registered voters. In other words, it’s crap. No responsible news organization would post such misleading nonsense–except in hopes of discouraging Romney voters.

Filth.

But that doesn’t stop the voter-suppression wizards at KSDK , the AP, and Politico from splattering a meaningless graph across their home pages.

(Note: Politico has since removed the misleading graphic.)

Let KSDK know you don’t appreciate voter suppression tactics.

UPDATE: In response to @Michelle_Moore’s watchdog journalism, the vote suppressors have update their misleading graphic.

SOTUday Night Fever on KSDK 5

Reading Time: 1

I’ll participate on KSDK Channel 5’s post-SOTU discussion panel Tuesday following the State of the Union speech. (I being Bill Hennessy, in case you’re reading this from a news feed.)

I don’t know who my fellow panelists will be, but I think it’s pretty cool that a local network invited a tea partier to help break down the President’s State of the Union speech.

The speech starts at 8:00 p.m. CT Tuesday, January 25 on  KSDK 5. The analysis follows. 

Please tune in and tell your friends.  (Tweet, Facebook, email a link to this post, using the buttons below.) 

Other ideas to make the evening more meaningful:

* Start an office pool on what I wear

* Do a shot every time Barry says “perfectly clear”

* Draw a picture of Nancy Pelosi when John Boehner announces the President

* Have your kids interrupt with applause every time you say something really, really witty at the TV

* In the comments below, post the snarky answers I should have given instead of the lame, unintelligible responses I actually give

* Add your own ideas below
