    If one Googles the name Rodney Stanhope via Google News, the only stories you’ll find in the mainstream media revolve around comments the Tea Partier made at a rally today. Yet, if you visit Big Government, you’ll find that he was assaulted by a union member at a MoveOn organized protest. Stanhope was forced to visit the hospital for X-rays. I first heard more about the story via an email tip that the thug is a shop steward, Richard Andazola with Teamster local 439 out of Stockton. That makes him a union leader. One can only imagine the coverage were a tea party leader to assault a Leftist at a protest.

    Every news story not covered is a conspiracy.

    Saying that a shop steward is a "union leader" is akin to saying a foreman is a "corporate executive".

    No mainstream media outlet has covered the suspected news conspiracy. Rather suspicious, don't you think?

    not really, lower-level leaders ARE considered leaders in community organizations. or whatever superset unions are a subset of. i was going to say grass roots but wikipedia says that's not it.
