Tea Party serves up Issaquah rally Thursday

NEW — 6 a.m. April 14, 2010

A Tax Day Tea Party will return to downtown Issaquah for a second year.

Participants will gather at the corner of Front Street and Sunset Way at noon April 15, the deadline for filing federal income tax returns.

Turnout could be bolstered at the rally due to opposition to the healthcare law signed into law by President Obama in late March. Organizers also plan events in Seattle, on the steps of the state Capitol in Olympia and at Bellevue City Hall. Find a list of Tea Party events across the state here.

Demonstrators in Issaquah and across the nation used the deadline for filing income tax returns last year for a grassroots event modeled on the Boston Tea Party. The event attracted more than 200 people to the steps of Issaquah City Hall.

    I expect my news to attempt to remain as objective, and neutral as possible. Because of that, it strikes me as odd that the reporter chose to provide a link to tea party events across the state [Find a list of Tea Party events across the state here.] in the main copy of her report. It comes across as advocacy for this particular group IMO, not reporting. Does the Issaquah Press provide an equal level of advocacy for all groups it reports on?

    I’m not against providing information to the citizenry, nor am I against providing such links. I just hope that the Issaquah Press is consistent and provides such informational links for all groups (political or otherwise) that it reports on.

Got something to say?
