WAYNE TV: Right wingers defend the Springs (see video)

August 16, 2011

Three right wingers walked into a bar... but not before walking into a public television station in Denver. This is no joke. They took to the set and did an entire show that lambasts leftists in the media who lied about Colorado Springs in a year-long orchestrated propaganda campaign that used our city to symbolize the horrors of conservative politics and culture.

They explained how two ranking city employees duped reporters into portraying the Springs as a failure — even though it could be in better fiscal shape than any other major city in the country.

It really happened. Yours truly joined Jon Caldara, of the free market Independence Institute, and Sean Paige, deputy director of the Colorado chapter of Americans For Prosperity. Then we closed down a bar. View it here.
