JD Hayworth for Senate, Arizona media Blackout on Tea Party Choice

Turning the lights on in media blackout Arizona

?By Judi McLeod??Friday, August 13, 2010

Earth to Arizona mainstream media: patriots are already piercing sparks of bright light through your media blackout.

?Media censorship in Arizona has now become quite blatant.? Can Canada Free Press help,? patriot Annette McHugh writes CFP this morning.? ?Not only do the anti-SB1070 protesters get more media coverage than the pro-SB1070 supporters, but now there is blatant, unconstitutional censorship occurring in Arizona of media attempts to silence Conservative voices, activities, rallies, press releases and press conferences of Arizona Tea Parties!?

It seems that silence is not golden but deafening in Senator John McCain country.

?We?re asking for all Tea Party members, those who identify with the foundational principles of the Tea Party Movement, as well as individuals from every political party and ideology who value the First Amendment rights which apply to EVERYONE, to take quick action to bring this atrocity to the attention of our National news media,? writes McHugh.? ?Our attempts for local media acknowledgement and response has gone ignored repeatedly!? No matter which political candidate you support, no matter which political party you most identify with, we all agree that First Amendment rights apply to every individual?EVEN CONSERVATIVES!? Please contact, email, call every media organization in your state, even outside the U.S. to send this message quite loudly.? WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED!?

Good thing the Tea Parties are including the international media in their call for help,? as it seems that the British media and CFP care more about US media blackouts than does the American mainstream media.

McHugh?s concerns are echoed by Pam Stevenson, AZ Director, Tea Party Patriots: ?Last week the media was invited to the Press conference announcing that 16 Arizona TEA Parties were supporting/endorsing J.D. Hayworth for the senate race.? Although media representatives showed up from local TV stations, radio stations and newspapers?NONE of them ran the story,? Stevenson wrote in an SOS to patriots.

The media drank the bottled water, fanned themselves in the oppressive heat, returned to their offices and disappeared under a wall of it-didn?t-happen silence.

?Regardless of your choice for senate candidate; this should be a BIG red flag that the media can shut out the news if it does not fit with their agenda, says Stevenson.? ?Interesting enough, when John McCain ran for office in 2008, he complained that the media was in the tank for Obama and he did not receive adequate press coverage.? Now the tables have turned and McCain is the more progressive candidate so the media is shutting out news that can get a more conservative candidate elected.

?Please alert your groups that the media has shut us down and we need to let the nation know that we will not be silent.? We need to have hundreds of Tea Party members emailing their complaints and then blasting their phone lines if they ignore our emails.

?TEA Party Nation and ALIPAC have already made statements to alert their members of this injustice.? Please get this information out to everyone you now and ask them to tell the media they want to know the activities of the TEA Party groups.? We reserve our right to Free Speech!?

Meanwhile, the Tea Party Movement has two mighty weapons to fight off the media blackout in Sen. John McCain country:? Word of mouth and taking the story viral via the mightier-than-media Internet.

Somewhere the light is starting to pierce the darkness in media blackout Arizona.
