Local Tea Party’s Explore How to Leverage Media for Messaging

Monday, March 12, 2012

 

As the growing Tea Party flexes its political muscles in the 2012 election cycle, many of the leading Central Massachusetts groups are offering some of the leaders in media to discuss how media can be leveraged to support and influence political causes. On Wednesday, the Paxton, Leicester, Rutland, and Holden Tea Party present an innovative program, "Activate the Media for Your Cause."

How Media Can Get the Message Out

"As Conservatives we need to combat the dominant Liberal voices within the media, which are not only published in the Letters To The Editor section of newspapers, but are also present in the transparent ideologies of the establishment media's so called journalists," said Jim McGrath, Co-Chairman Leicester/Paxton/Rutland/Holden Tea Party Group. The event will be held at the Paxton Senior Center and begins at 7:00pm. 

Speaking on Wednesday, March 14th are:

Ken Mandile - President/Co-founder of the Worcester Tea Party. Ken is the President and Owner of Swissturn USA, Inc.

Jim Polito - Host of the #1 rated talk show in Worcester, "The Jim Polito Show". Jim has won several AP awards for journalism as a TV news reporter in Western MA.

Josh Fenton – CEO and Co-Founder of GoLocal Worcester.com and GoLocalProv.com news websites. He is the former Minority leader of the Providence City Council.

Chris Sinacola - Chief Editorial Page Editor for the Worcester Telegram and Gazette and Scrabble champion.

John Weston – John hosts "Conservatively Speaking" every Saturday morning and WCRN and is a co-chair of the Twin City Tea Party

The event will be held at 17 West Street/Route 31. For additional information: www.worcesterteaparty.com/localteaparties.html

All you need to know is that local right wing hate monger Jim Polito is addressing the group. Extremists and obstructionists, the Tea Party does much more harm than good.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, Bob. Why not stop by, meet some folks, and actually find out some facts. You might be surprised. Stop by the Senior Center and be enlightened, or remain convinced that the mainstream media is correct. It's still a free country. Let's hope it stays that way.

The city of Worcester was totally screwing up real estate tax assessments on elderly residents on fixed incomes. Who helped them out Bob?

Yep, you got it. The tea party.

That is only one of mant things they have done, but it seems that someone has convinced you with lies and there is a certain percentage of the population that can't think for themselves and allow others to think for them.

If you influence any medium's sales manager you have a better shot than appealing to editors to provide unbiased news content. With shrinking newspaper readership, sales people will listen and they really run the show in media.
