Why does the media on both the right and the left go to such great extremes to pretend this man doesn’t even exist? You can’t tell me he is not a viable candidate for the election. He lost by less then 1% point to Bachman in the straw poll. He has been the most consistent member of congress for the past 30yrs yet, never gets caught up in using popular talking points as campaign rhetoric yet as Jon Stewart put it, “”How did libertarian Ron Paul become the 13th floor in a hotel?”
When asked by Piers Morgan of CNN this exact question during an interview earlier this week, Paul responded;
they’re afraid of me, they don’t want my views out there, they’re too dangerous, we want freedom and we’re challenging the status quo, we want to end the war, we want a gold standard, and their view is that people just can’t handle all this freedom, they want dependency, they want socialism and welfarism, so I think they don’t like to hear our views, but I think we’ll make the best of it and we’ll do very well.
Well as ironic as it may seem, Mass Media’s obvious and sheepish behavior towards Ron appears to have completely backfired where there is no more evident then a story run in Huff Post, ‘Late Returns: Ron Paul Gets His Best Coverage From All The Coverage Covering His Lack Of Coverage’ and across the internet where searching for “Ron Paul” in Google continues to heat up as has traffic has jumped to 3x its normal volume….and let us not forget, the wonderful and cynical Jon Stewart, who spends about 10 minutes in a very funny but very necessary scolding of Mass Media on the issue. Take a moment if you can to scroll down to the story from PEW RESEARCH which shows some pretty scary stats as to how far Mass Media has gone to truly make it appear as if this guy simply does not exist.
STAY TUNED AND LOOK FOR A POST IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS AS I HAVE HAD NUMEROUS REQUESTS BY FOLLOWERS TO SEND INFORMATION, VIDEOS, LINKS etc TO HELP THEM GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF EXACT WHO THIS FELLA IS.
Pew Research: Evidence Corporate Media Connived to Ignore Ron Paul
Pew Research has added fuel to the argument that the corporate media has ignored Ron Paul in favor of other candidates and non-candidates. Pew’s analysis reveals that story-wise, Paul trails far behind all other candidates, including non-candidate Donald Trump and Rick Perry, who became a candidate last weekend. Ron Paul officially announced his candidacy on May 13, weeks ahead of most of the other GOP hopefuls.
Here is a chart breaking down campaign stories: (or see above)
Ron Paul’s message of liberty and restoration of the republic is so unpopular with the corporate media, they decided to spend more time and effort covering Donald Trump, who is not even a candidate. He also trails far behind Sarah Palin, who is not a candidate.
“Paul’s coverage also lags far behind Trump (94 stories), who dallied with a run before opting out in mid-May and Palin (85 stories), who has given no indication to date that she will enter the race. In addition, Paul trails long-shot candidate and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman (44 stories) and Texas Governor, Rick Perry (33 stories) who only announced his candidacy on August 13,”
The corporate media serves as a barometer for the establishment. “In a further attempt to gauge the post-straw poll attention to Paul’s campaign, PEJ also used the Snapstream server’s closed captioning capability to assess the candidates’ television coverage in the first few days after that balloting,” Journalism.org continues. “According to that analysis, Paul was mentioned just 29 times. By comparison, Perry was mentioned 371 times, Bachmann was mentioned 274 times, and Romney was mentioned 183 times.”
In other words, the establishment will run Perry with Bachmann as his vice president against Obama who is already being portrayed as a one-term president. Perry, will now ramp up his fake Tea Party rhetoric and try to undermine Paul’s base. He launched his faux liberty campaign earlier this week when he took a timid swipe at bankster minion Ben Bernanke and the privately owned Federal Reserve.
