Downplaying Tea Parties

Notice that at  around 06:11 in this video clip, Ben Affleck downplays the significance of the Tea Parties, claiming that they were “relatively small” and that the largest crowd sizes reached at any of them were no more than 200-300 people. Reports say that several crowd sizes reached into the thousands. Chris Matthews did not correct him.

That’s just more evidence that people should not base their political beliefs on what their favorite celebrities say. And it’s just one more example of how the mainstream media seemingly dismiss these protests as somehow manufactured, not legitimate or full of ignorant discontents.
