This segment originally aired on the July 6th, 2014 episode of Ring of Fire on Free Speech TV.

People like Michelle Bachmann and Louie Gohmert never have anything of substance to add to a debate, yet the corporate media seems to love having these oddballs on the air.  This helps to spread their crazy, backwards beliefs all over the country.

Ring of Fire’s Mike Papantinio discusses why the media loves the crazy Tea Party with blogger Heather Digby Parton.
