Dana Loesch: 'Government-run Media' Trying to 'Kill' Tea Party Messengers

"There is a huge effort underway right now by government-run media and by the Left to use any tactic that they can whatsoever to invalidate the message of the Tea Party movement."

So said talk show host and Tea Party leader Dana Loesch Saturday.

Appearing on FNC's "America's News HQ" with host Shannon Bream, Loesch claimed the media don't like "the message of individual liberty and limited government that this Tea Party movement is bringing, and since they can't kill the message, they're trying to kill the messenger" (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript, h/t HotAirPundit): 

DANA LOESCH: I think that there is, there is a huge effort underway right now by government-run media and by the Left to use any tactic that they can whatsoever to invalidate the message of the Tea Party movement. So, they're trying to go after like the fringe, or this or that. There's, with, I said this before, with any huge group of people, be they on the right or the left, you're always going to have folks that are a little bit on the fringe. And I know, for instance, like with a lot of the Tea Party stuff, some of them aren't even our friends. Some of them are like Lyndon LaRouche plants that have come up. That's well-documented. We've had, in St. Louis, we've even had people, we've had liberal plants come with Nazi signs, and they've tried to have their photos taken by like charity vans if we've done like food drives or anything. I mean, I mean there's a lot of instances such as this, but there's a huge effort to try to invalidate the message of individual liberty and limited government that this Tea Party movement is bringing, and since they can't kill the message, they're trying to kill the messenger.

Indeed.
