If one were to leave their parent's basement every so often and ... oh, I don't know ... maybe go to a sporting event or a game show (you know, something that is televised) they would know that there are such things as applause signs, announcements that we are about to "go live", etc... As for FOX News "stage-managing Tea Parties", it was a live broadcast and she was letting everyone know that they were broadcasting live. I've been to hundreds of sporting events and I've even been on a talk show (full disclosure - it was on FOX News) and getting the crowd fired up as you are going live is nothing new - it's the norm. I've also been to Tea Party events, and there is nothing "staged" at all. But with such reliable sources such as C&L, Media Matters (Not) and Huffington Post, you must be right.
And how about MSNBC and their propaganda:

You have been dismissed....
