Short Film on The Tea Party

Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit, says this short documentary, The Tea Party: Brewing Up a Movement, was produced by the Knoxville News-Sentinel, which is quite surprising because it has no head-spinning or eye-rolling as they take a closer look at the Tea Party. Instead, it’s respectful, curious and balanced.

Reynolds is featured as one of the authorities on this oddity most members in the media can’t get a grip on. Ramesh Ponnuru, of National Review, also takes part as a talking head, with some prescient advice for tea partiers near the end.

Kudos to the Knox News for making a meaningful effort at multimedia reporting. It would be nice to see more papers around the country get away from wire service pablum and really report on their communities.
