On Tuesday, May 5, Nation Washington Editor Chris Hayes appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann to discuss Eric Odom, creator of the tea party protests, who is upset that supporters are taking his “movement” national and focusing too much on the federal government. An unsurprised Hayes notes that this is the outcome of a small campaign being hijacked by the Murdoch Empire. “You see now the cost that comes to marrying yourself to these big institutions in the conservative movement that I don’t think have much real connection to whatever there is of a right grassroots,” Hayes says.
