After taking some heat for barring the press altogether from their upcoming convention in Nashville, the organizers of the Nationwide Tea Party Convention say they will open the doors to the media -- but not all the media.

In a statement on its Web site Thursday, the Tea Party Nation announced it would allow five news organizations access to the conference, which takes place in Nashville from February 4 to 6 and features Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker.

The admitted news organizations are Fox News,,, The Wall Street Journal and WorldNetDaily. All five are generally considered to be right-wing news organizations. Two of them -- Fox News and the Journal -- are owned by media magnate Rupert Murdoch.

If the TPM wants to be seen as a Grass Roots movement then why are they only
allowing Media from the Conservative side?

It doesn't matter though, there will be plenty of undercover news people with SLRs that record video and sound in HD, to capture the festivities and upload it to YouTube within minutes. Secrets, gaffs and blunders can't be kept secret from dedicated muckrakers and the paparazzi geekdom.

Must be something they learned from the' Openness of our "Fearless Leaders" Press office. Seems that turnabout is more than fair when dealing with the MSM!

They had to let Fox in so that Palin could attend.

This may be a mistake.

Hopefully they have someone smart enough handling security on this movement. All it takes is some provacateurs or some asshat Repubs to frell up the whole works.

Anyway, the first new party in quite awhile. Hopefully it can make a difference.

Taxed Enough Already sounds like a good basis for a party to me!
