Brew Up a Brand

Friday, April 17, 2009


Part of the tea party brand was the idea that they were non-partisan. Freedom Works, a group chaired by former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey, was one of the day's big organizers. Freedom Works’ press secretary Adam Brandon talks about the groups' media strategy and why they're somewhat wary of elected officials getting in on their brand.

I just listened to this segment, several months too late, and I disagree with the other commenter here. I felt that Bob Garfield held a very respectful interview with Adam Brandon. I further felt that, despite the fact that I disagree with many of the tea-baggers, and specifically with Fox's biased coverage of the "parties", Mr. Brandon presented himself and his case very eloquently. It gave me a new respect for his group's views and cause, and I would be intrigued to hear more of what he has to say. Thanks OTM!

I listened to the segment to see if Ms. Gladstone and her colleague would actually conduct a balanced critique of the main stream media's salacious commentary in addition to looking critically at the organizations that helped promote the TEA Parties. Not surprisingly, she glanced over the vile jokes and her male colleague went after Mr. Brandon quite hard. So, congratulations OTM / NPR, your liberal credentials remain squeaky clean...and I remain a periodic listener who will not pay for this kind of drivel that you're pawning off as "critique."
