Media Matters is taking the Tea Party Convention to task regarding its limited credentialing for press access.
Media message from the right wing: If you don’t give the Tea Party “fair coverage,” then you will be banned from covering its convention.
And who says the conservative movement doesn’t hold journalism in contempt?
So….when a quasi political convention held by a private group selectively excludes dissenting media, that’s contempt. But when the White House selectively excludes dissenting media, singling them out for vilification, that’s just fine with Media Matters.
For the record, I would like to see lamestream media outlets there. More often than not, when they cover the Tea Parties, they embarrass themselves in a way that simultaneously exposes their bias, while energizing and growing the base.
Hell, I’d like to see Susan Rosegen there. She’s ratings gold for me! But this is a private event and it’s up to the organizers to determine what they feel is best for their convention.
That said, the hypocrisy of Media Matters position on this issue is legendary, considering their fundamental working relationship with MoveOn.org and Brave New Films, in their “Fox Attacks” campaign to persuade the entire Democratic party to boycott a dissenting news organization.

MoveOn.Org is scared. They are nervous that Massachusetts AG Martha Coakley might have “slacked off” on the campaign trail (vacationing just weeks before the all-important special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat), and with her opponent, Scott Brown now closing in on her witgh single digit poll differences.
“We can’t let a right-winger take over Ted Kennedy’s seat because not enough progressives are paying attention.”
So MoveOn.org has dispatched the troops to the battlefield known as Massachusetts. Groups like ACORN and SIEU affiliates will be pushing the electorate in these last 10 days of campaigning. Adding to the worries, there is an Independent on the ballot, Joseph Kennedy. No, not Joseph Kennedy of THE Kennedy family. But seeing the Kennedy name on the ballot to fill the Kennedy Senate seat might pull votes away from Coakley as well.

Until today, Coakley refused to meet face to face with Brown to debate the issues. But she has said she’d meet with the President of Iran.
