Outraged American taxpayers are preparing to storm the so-called mainstream media in just a few weeks – with tea-party protests now set to boil in front of as many as 72 press offices across the U.S.

As WND reported, the “Operation: Can You Hear Us Now?” webmaster, who identified himself only as a veteran who served in the military for six years, asked to remain nameless. He launched his website on Sept. 15. After nearly two weeks, he is experiencing an outpouring of support from citizens interested in hosting and attending rallies. 

“People are really psyched up,” he told WND. “There are thousands of new visitors coming to the site daily.”

Referencing the recent media blackout of a massive taxpayer march in Washington, D.C., the operation website states, “Imagine: There was a million-plus person march on Washington, and no one reported it. It did not happen.”

Get ready for Oct. 17! Visit the one and only “tea party store” now.

The webmaster said citizens should connect through tea party groups, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and message boards to spread the word. Sons of Liberty riders are planning to ride in support of the media rallies. The webmaster also said organizers must pick the best times and local media locations for the Oct. 17 events.

The operation is planning a coordinated e-mail, phone and fax campaign against four major media outlets with the simple message: “Can you hear us now?”

Messages seeking comment from ABC, CBS and NBC had not been returned at the time of this report.

Attendees are encouraged to bring signs, banners, flags and voices to the events. The webmaster said the operation is just a grass-roots movement catching fire.

“I’m interested in restoring this country to its founding values and principles,” he told WND today. “The mainstream media talking heads spoon-fed by teleprompters are puppets and parrots of the network producers who have a clear political agenda to remake this country into something it was never intended to be. This is my small contribution to democracy.”

Citizens interested in adding or coordinating an event may contact organizers.
