CNN vs. the Tea Partiers

Hundreds of videos were posted to YouTube after Tax Day "Tea Party" protests that went down all across the country yesterday. Held in the spirit of the 1773 Boston Tea Party, these modern day tea parties were organized to protest the Obama administration's increased government spending and tax policies.

The most viewed news video on YouTube today is actually a clip in which CNN reporter Susan Roesgen visits one of these tea parties being held in Chicago and engages an angry crowd of protesters. They don't exactly welcome CNN's presence at the largely right-wing gathering (which was fully supported and promoted by the conservative cable news network, Fox News). Watch the clip here:

A group called the Founding Bloggers arrived on the scene just after the CNN-protester altercation and captured some footage and interviews with members of the riled-up crowd.
