NewsBusters' Sheppard Speaks At San Francisco Tea Party
For those wondering just how strong the sentiment being expressed at Tea Parties and town hall meetings is growing throughout the nation, consider that about 1,000 people turned out to demonstrate against ObamaCare Friday in one of the most liberal cities in America...San Francisco.
That's right, a Tea Party in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Cal.) own district.
Speakers included KSFO's Brian Sussman, and California Republican Party Vice Chairman Thomas Del Beccaro.
Also in attendance, and speaking to the crowd without a microphone due to problems with the sound system, was NewsBusters' own Noel Sheppard (video embedded below the fold, Sheppard appears at 7:10, h/t Michelle Malkin):
Later that day, another Tea Party was held across the Bay in Danville, California, where a group of about two hundred so-called "angry mobsters" greeted Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Cal.) as she attended a book signing at a local bookstore:
NB's Sheppard was in attendance, and provided radio coverage for KSFO during Brian Sussman's show.
As a final aside, we could not find coverage of the San Francisco event in that city's largest paper, the S.F. Chronicle. Color us unsurprised.
*****Update: Another video has been provided covering the SF event courtesy PipeLineNews.org (Sheppard appears at 2:00):
Sheppard appeared at these events as a private citizen and not in an official NewsBusters.org or Media Research Center capacity.
