Alternative headline: “California congressman thinks his constituents are dumb, gets surprise.” At a town-hall meeting in Reseda, Representative Brad Sherman (D-Oligarchy) tried to deny knowing anything about the voter-intimidation suit against the New Black Panther Party or the Holder Justice Department’s dropping of a case it had won. As you’ll see, his constituents weren’t buying it:
This is another example that shows how the progressives and their “moderate” enablers in the Democratic Party can’t rely anymore on being shielded by the mainstream media’s slanted coverage or non-coverage. Thanks to the Internet, the MSM’s role as gatekeeper is over. Whether it’s via a cable network such as Fox, Center-Right news and opinion aggregators such as Pajamas Media or Real Clear Politics, the moderate to conservative blogosphere, or just individuals armed with video cameras and a YouTube account, there are too many holes in the Great Wall of the Liberal Media to keep alternative opinions at bay. As our elected representatives discovered during the health-care town halls last summer, their voters are informed and willing to ask questions – and they expect answers, not feigned ignorance or stonewalls or temper tantrums.
Much to their chagrin and the public’s benefit.
