NAACP launches coalition watchdog site to ‘monitor’ Tea Party ‘racists'


The NAACP partnered with Media Matters, Think Progress and New Left Media to launch, a website that will specifically publish and monitor “racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement.”
Media Matters and Think Progress representatives said their content and reporting haven’t changed and that the NAACP approached their organizations seeking only to republish select content they’ve produced. The NAACP’s new is aimed specifically at highlighting “racism” in the Tea Party.
