Here's Mike Tobin's report on Geraldo At Large:
On Saturday night’s broadcast of “Geraldo at Large,”
Fox News correspondent Mike Tobin took some critical shots at protesters attempting to shout down and disrupt his broadcast. He told host Geraldo Rivera he has observed hate and an effort to shut out other viewpoints.
“One thing I think should make clear – the people coming after us from every live shot here, these people hate,” Tobin said. “These are people who don’t respect diverse viewpoints. In fact, they’re so afraid I’ll present a diverse viewpoint, that’s why they try to heckle me and shut down every live shot. They’ve made it clear, that what they want to make it harder for me to do my job. They are proud of that when they disrupt a live shot, when they really trample over the First Amendment rights or the First Amendment’s obligations of a reporter. Now, I am not saying that’s all of the people. Those are the people that come here and heckle and try to disrupt things. I look in their eyes – there is hate in their eyes. They don’t want to hear any kind of viewpoint that is different from their own. That’s why they do what they do.”
Pretty much everything the MSM has tried to pin on the Tea Party movement in particular and the conservative movement in general is projection of what they and the Liberal Left think and feel. The hatred that's oozed out of the Left over the past two years has come to the forefront in the past 6 weeks, starting with the assasination attempt on Congresswoman Gifford in Arizona, and the hate fest that's occuring in Wisconsin and now spreading all across the country.
Instead of the "new civility" we have Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts calling for union suporters to get their enemies "to get a little bloody."
The mere thought that Sarah Palin was encouraging her supports to do this...sent the media into a frenzy of blame and recimination...yet this Congressman gets off lightly with little or no punishment from the enablers in the media. This is not helping the public union's cause, nor that of the Democratic Party...independent voters, those people who win elections turned away from the spending binge of the Democrats last fall, and this sort of rhetoric is pushing them turning them off in ever greater numbers.
