We are at a point in history where the local media doesn't have the time or inclination to do basic research into the things they discuss. But that won't stop them from discussing it:
I wrote a couple days ago about how KMOV was openly entertaining tea party conspiracy theory that a Nazi who went to their rally was an "infiltrator" sent to make them look bad. I also posted evidence that a local white supremacist group has been advertising tea party events. But KMOV is not capable of doing research or asking questions, and they once again pass on the message to their viewers that the Nazi at the Tea Party rally was an "infiltrator." Other huge failures of John Knicely's coverage:
Whether intentionally or not, KMOV is misinforming their viewers.
Update: check out the funny "St. Louis Activist Hub Lies" banner that was added to the video! I'm so flattered that the tea party is thinking of me.
