Washington Post ramps up Tea Party Coverage

While the tea party movement may have been initially under-covered, major news organizations have since devoted a lot of resources to it.

Now, the Washington Post is taking steps to make sure the movement's covered fully in its pages. Amy Gardner, who's been on the Local staff, is joining National to "train her sights on the emerging Tea Party movement and developments inside the Republican Party," according to a memo obtained by POLITICO.

Other media outlets already been amping up their coverage in recent months.
