American taxpayers are planning to more than 100 mainstream media offices and stations across the nation next week in protest of a media blackout of the growing movement against Obama administration policies.
Following sparse coverage of a massive 9/12 march on Washington, talk show host Rush Limbaugh urged citizens to bring their protests to the front doors of major media outlets.
He suggested citizens host tea parties "on or next to the properties housing the TV networks."
"Dare them to cover what's right under their noses!" he said.
Limbaugh suggested leaders of the media rallies present a list of grievances to each individual station.
"Make the challenges substantive and adult and challenge their journalistic ethics," he said. "... I want this all to happen spontaneously."
Now, a group unaffiliated with Limbaugh is preparing to do just that.
"Operation: Can You Hear Us Now?" is planning more than 100 media protests across the nation next week. Nearly 7,500 fans have flocked to a Facebook page for the event.
