UPDATE X5: This is our last update tonight. Here are the lead stories at the Washington Post and NY Times as of 10:50 pm EST tonight, March 3, 2013 –
UPDATE X4: CBS News just can’t seem to inform their viewers about Sen. Paul’s filibuster. Sadly, at 10:20 pm EST their lead story is about Mr. Obama picking up the tab for a dinner w/members of the GOP. Wow! One would think that their lead story would be about a Senator who was speaking to the protection of the BILL OF RIGHTS rather than picking up a damned dinner tab. Seriously, who gives a rip who picked up the tab for dinner? Shame on CBS News!

LOL…ABC News finally, 10 hours later, acknowledges a filibuster is even going on in the US Senate! Screenshot taken at 10:08 pm EST. See screenshots taken b/w 5:49 pm EST and now, 10:10 pm EST and learn how ABC has ignored this historic filibuster arguing for due process and the constitution all night. Pathetic. Viewers actually give ABC News their time. Why? Alt news are the only outlets who have covered this filibuster since Paul stepped up to the podium NOT mainstream news. Yet you still trust them. Why?…
UPDATE X3: Unbelievable! CBS nor ABC news have bothered to inform their viewers of this most historic filibuster led by Sen. Rand Paul. Sadly, ABC news leads with the Arias trial. Who gives a rip? Especially when compared to a serious discussion on American kill lists, indefinite detention,targeted drone strikes in the good ole USA all related to the continual erosion of our BILL OF RIGHTS!
The T-Room has added “The Hill” news to our list of those main/alt news who are following this historic filibuster…
UPDATE x2: What can we say. CBC nor ABC News give the slightest bit of ink to Paul’s filibuster! This is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that neither of these supposed news agencies are serving the interests of their American viewers. Do they honestly believe their viewers aren’t interested in a Senator who is championing the BILL OF RIGHTS? Do they believe their viewers don’t care? Be sure to compare the CBS News screenshot taken b/w 5:49 – 6:30 pm EST below to their headline at 8:ish pm EST tonight in this update…
These are screenshots taken b/w 8 and 8:15 pm EST (see below what their headlines were b/w 5:49 and 6:30 pm EST today, March 6, 2013)
UPDATE x1: Just checked New York Times, New York Post and the Washington Post and they are still not covering Sen. Paul’s filibuster…it is now 7:27 pm EST.
Since Sen. Rand Paul took to the floor of the Senate eight hours ago, the T-Room has been monitoring mainstream and alternative media news sources to learn who in big media were covering the filibuster and informing their audience about this critical historical moment. Here a Senator from Kentucky took to the floor using the Brennan appointment to filibuster simply to ask Mr. Obama to clarify once and for all what his administrations intent is when it comes to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Kill lists AND how drones may be used on non-combatant American’s dwelling in the United States.
Drone strikes, kill lists and indefinite detention without due process are abhorrent to the majority of Americans. Paul is simply asking Mr. Obama to provide clarification, in writing, as to his administrations intent. You’d think, at a minimum, these media outlets would cover Sen. Paul’s filibuster which is now in its eighth hour.
See Who isn’t? AND Who is?
