Cincinnati Tea Party Responds to Allegations

Cincinnati, OH, April 15, 2010.  Freedom has rung loud and clear in southwestern Ohio at the second annual Tax Day Tea Party 2010.  Nearly 10,000 conservatives and all local media outlets joined together to celebrate liberty and freedom in the United States of America.

The initial schedule included a book signing, a tea party, and a live television show.  Fox News was responsible for all aspects of the book signing and the television show – staffing, funding, and producing . The Cincinnati Tea Party was responsible for all aspects of the tea party – staffing, funding, and producing.  Funding and contracting for these events was separate and no funds or contracts were signed between Fox News and the Cincinnati Tea Party.

Shortly after the scheduled book signing (which was canceled) Fox News producers onsite informed the Cincinnati Tea Party senior leadership that Mr. Hannity had to rush home for a personal emergency.  The Cincinnati Tea Party expressed a statement of support and concern to Hannity and family.

The Cincinnati Tea Party received information from local media attributing concerns regarding ticketing to a executive vice president at the Fox News Network.  The Cincinnati Tea Party has not been able to confirm the authenticity of this message via a source this statement to any @foxnews.com email or http://www.FoxNews.com website.  Emails and phone calls to network went unanswered until 7:48 p.m. – more than four hours after the scheduled appearance; this source has not yet put it in writing despite our request.
