Viral Sensation! CNBC’s Rick Santelli Calls for “Chicago Tea Party”

CNBC's Rick Santelli

Social Media creates a marketing platform with no limits on subject matter or power given to the people.  Regardless of your political bent, social media is permeating politics with YouTube sensations such as Rick’s rant (he seems to be striking a chord with Americans) and of course CNN and Facebook’s successful live streaming partnership during the Presidential Inauguration. On Tuesday evening, February 24th, President Obama addressed Congress and once again, it was streamed live online by CNN (and others), accompanied by live updates from Facebook. People (yes all people, not just journalists) commented, tweeted and blogged.  Whether it’s Rick Santelli or Rick the random guy, social media has taken hold and gives power back to the people.
