Anti-inflation Organization Appeals To Fox News To Cover Tea Party Candidate

June 24, 2010 by  

Anti-inflation organization appeals to Fox News to cover Tea Party candidate Amid the growing sings of power from big spending and big government opponents, the National Inflation Association (NIA) has been flexing its political muscle by appealing to its members to contact a national TV network to support a Tea Party candidate.

The candidate in question is Peter Schiff, who is running for the United States Senate from Connecticut. He has declared himself a Tea Party candidate—devoted to fiscal prudence, debt elimination and small government—but the NIA has criticized Fox News for "blacking out" his campaign.

"NIA believes that Peter Schiff fully understands the hyperinflationary crisis our country is approaching and how to prevent it," the organization said in a statement.

It added that "we need [him] in Washington if we want to have any hope of preventing hyperinflation and the complete destruction of the U.S. dollar."

To that end, the NIA has appealed to its members to email Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly to encourage them to invite Schiff on their shows.

In the upcoming Aug. 10 Republican primary, Schiff will run against Linda McMahon, former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19851895-ADNFCR

    Whenever anyone of the brainwashed sheeple tells you that Fox is the “conservative” news network, remind them of this lack of news about candidates like Peter Schiff. The same thing happened when Joe Kennedy was running against Scott Brown and Martha Coakley. Maybe Fox isn’t as bad as CBS, NBC, ABC, UPI, AP, NYT, LAT, BG, etc., but it usually leaves the voters in the dark about the really good candidates. And don’t forget, Rupert Murdoch, the major owner of Fox, contributed money to Hilary Clinton’s campaign.

      There are thousands of candidates running for office every year.Even the main stream media can’t cover them all.Then again if the Tea Party can rustle up enough money almost anything can happen.

      • Allan

        It’s obvious money isn’t everything to mainstream media at this point, otherwise NBC, NY Times, Time Magazine, etc. would not be killing off their readership with yellow and red journalism.

    • Jake The Snake

      I agree with your point of view about Fox News. Add to that the fact that Murdoch is also for Amnesty. He is not a Conservative; don’t even know if he is a Republican.

      How much does he influence who is allowed to be mentioned in the broadcasts of his staff. We may never know.

      I am not down on Fox news. However, I also believe that all of the media should be apolitical. They should report all sides of issues and leave their own viewpoint out of it. The commentators can and should continue to lay out their thoughts regarding whatever story they are presenting as they are not reporters. They open the doors for discussion. If they get too one-sided, it is easy to click the remote.

        Thanks, Jake. Far too many people assume that Murdoch must be a conservative.
        He’s anything but a conservative. He’s an opportunist, and is more interested with making money than with making it known that his politics do not mirror the Fox network’s ‘leanings.’
        The same can be said of Buffet, Gates and Soros. Some readers who keep an eye on this website will claim that Buffet, Gates and Soros are all ‘conservatives’ or closet Republicans. In fact, NONE of them are. All three are incredibly, filthy rich progressives.
        Buffet, Gates and Soros are up to their necks in corporatism, and yet at the same time they’re the darlings of people who never hesitate to rant and rave about corporations and their nasty, suspect riches (riches that supposedly need to be “re-distributed,” by the way).

    “We the People” don’t believe that any News media should support any political issue or candidate at anytime. Look at what the NY Times and others did in the 2010 election. The original intent of the news media was to put out all information to the public and thus inform them to be better qualified when it came time to vote. Today’s main stream media does nothing but “whore” themselves for their own personal likes and dislikes, In their infant stages the Press was all for Freedom. Some of them lived and died in the distribution of truth.

      trp 878 — I agree.

  • hoss

    Hear! Hear! Let the news be told but leave the decisions to the people!
    I agree with TRP878

    • Claire

      And I agree with trp 878 and hoss. Let Americans do the choosing and voting.
      Fox was always involved with the tea party organization. I will not rely on any news media to make up my mind.

  • marvin

    news should be reported by the media not made but most reporters think they need to inject their own words in to news not report the news,or ask 10 differant people tell thay get the ansure they want right or wrong,and remimber the so called tea party can in nev that sen reid was backing we don,t need more partys we need better people to run

    • Allan

      Marvin-

      Lots of well-intended people have gone to Congress. Until the RULES of congressional process change, corruption of good people will continue. Have to make candidates sign pledges.
