Anti-MSNBC Organizers Hope for 60,000 Protesters at Comcast Shareholders Meeting
Via Fox News, the Hollywood Reporter lets us know that a tea party group is trying to mobilize 60,000 protesters to rally against MSNBC’s liberal programming at next week’s meeting of Comcast shareholders on May 15.
This week, 60,000 invitations were emailed to tea partyers in and around Philadelphia and word went out to about 4 million more nationwide that their services are needed beginning at 8 a.m. EST at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts Perelman Theater in Philadelphia, where Comcast’s meeting is set.
“The news programs at NBC and MSNBC, run by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, reflect total agreement with the Obama agenda,” reads the email, which comes from FreedomWorks, one of the nation’s leading tea-party groups. “These ‘news’ organizations even adopted the Obama re-election campaign’s ‘Forward’ slogan. Is this what Comcast subscribers and American voters need?”
