Despite the utter failure of the liberal Coffee Parties to counter the popular Tea Parties, the MSM continues to hype them to the point of absolute absurdity. And the latest entry in this category comes from Steve Tuttle of Newsweek with his claim that the Coffee Party now has 200,000 members and that they had 500 meetings one one day recently.

First, the Christian Science Monitor’s Patchwork Nation blog reported that the entire Tea Party movement consists of just 67,000 members. PBS NewsHour cross-posted the story on its The Rundown blog the same day. The next day, CNN reported the findings on its Political Ticker blog and Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Ben Smith co-authored a piece titled “The tea party’s exaggerated importance.”

Gee if the Coffee Party has three times as many members, why aren't they getting the same attention? :cuckoo:

Ah, but read the Newsweek article and one finds that those that showed up in DC disagreed with the premise, not interested in debate, but tea bagger blood. :lol:

Yes. I did read the article. Interesting. But the title was sooooo misleading.

Indeed, they tried to bury the meat of the findings. No surprise there, it wasn't what was intended. Newsweek hangs by a thread.
