Are the Media Ignoring Ron Paul?

• Pew Research Center
This is a pretty interesting chart. Even more so it comes from th Pew Research Institute---not exactly Paul friendly I would guess, AND it is criticism of the media (see sidebar snipets as well).

This is similar to another headline Donald Trump’s candidacy received three times more coverage than Ron Paul’s candidacy at

No, the Main Stream Media [MSM] is simply making it obvious to the public that no American should even think of the possibility that Ron Paul would ever become president of the United States. Except for the Alternative Media, i.e. and similar others, it is just that the MSM is not anymore covering Ron Paul as much as he negatively deserves because concerned MSM people are convinced that he is "unelectable"!

Although I am sad that indeed it is impossible to get him elected as president, it is hard to deny that what he is doing really makes him, in the eyes of those MSM watchdogs, "unelectable". I don’t blame them. It is clear that his "butt-pushers" ignore this reality and just carry on with their agenda using Paul.

Fox News public policy discussants are among the Alternative Media analysts I watch with curiosity. I noticed that Fox News is the only media online that does not pretend to blind the public of the hard evidence that RP is an "odd" ["unelectable"] politician wanting to be president of the United States that the public joked about.

For example, in foreign policy, MSM picturing RP as an "isolationist" is like painting his true replica in the canvas. Recall that on record he blamed the American people and the U.S. government – not the Al Qaeda terrorists – for that 911 infamy. He justified such oddity of an oddball politician by saying that Americans should have stayed at home and mind their own business instead of going to the Middle East and meddled in the internal affairs of the Arab world.

Also his nationalist stand to abolish the United Nations is among those eye-catching headliners in the Alternative Media … and many more. Anyone, whose mind’s eye cannot see that this is how an isolationist thinks, needs a lobotomy.

Banking security – to avoid a bank run and the collapse of the financial system – is protected by law. This is one of the important purposes the Federal Reserves was created by law to see to it that this banking security to safeguard the national economy is enforced at all times. "To audit" the Fed, which is RP’s perennial attempts in Congress that fail – and will always fail -- is running against this banking security grain. It is like that politician from the bayou who was so disgusted of how the economy was run that he wanted to AMEND the law of supply and demand! Who wants a president of the United States that thinks like that?

Anger and fury by those who rant that the people running the Fed are "thieves" and what-not, are not the weapons to use to win a public debate. They have all the time to go to any court of law, to prove that their wrangling is right and not just petty self-indulgence to stir public opinion against the Government like the radical Left does all the time. Otherwise to keep one’s big mouth shut is the better valor not to indulge in a derogatory seditious public-mind poisoning.

Now even what I now call Phony Fox News is exposed as they try to down play & marginalize the current best hope for America. Don't forget that Ron has been elected for 30 years from a heavily Hispanic district.  Here is why I now rail on Phony Fox News:

Subject: Fox Media bias

Hi every one at The Five. This is information I am posting all around on the net. Needless to say, I am very disappointed in your propagandist portrayal of Ron Paul. You can dismiss me a crazy RP supporter if you want. I just post this, let the people decide.

Fox is biased. But they are very sneaky about it. Like how most of the vapid talking heads keep saying Ron Paul is unelectable. Jive like that.

The other day on Happening Now, one of the phony Fox shows, Eric Bolling, Juan Williams & a coupla other ding bat ladies were snarking over 'Crazy Uncle' Ron Paul like something was wrong with him. Many at Fox repeat the jive mantra about him being unelectable, isolationist & often something along the lines of the 'Fed' isn't so bad in response to Ron's audit the 'Fed' bill. .

 Isolationist?? Ron Paul? Hardly. Not even. No way. If RP is isolationist he is in good company with the US Founders. Ron says the same things they did regarding foreign policy. Trade, travel, friendly relations with all countries possible, entangling alliances with none. How does wanting to end the printing $ based on the thin air inflation machine, AKA the 'Federal' Reserve, or at least have an audit of their secret books, make one weird? Or 'out there'???

How does calling for an end to undeclared war, like the one in Libya, bringing our troops home, stop policing ME countries borders & stop spending US $ building roads, bridges & so on when we are up to our nose in debt, equate to isolationist? These clowns on The Five are not the only ones. Spin master Bill O'R, Hannity, indeed, most of the Fox spouting heads, disparage Ron in sneaky little ways, though Fox  has him on, IMO so they can boost their ratings.

Now I find that another Fox lady I used to like, SE Cupp, is saying Ron Paul is "out there" & Ron  would be an albatross around the neck of the R half of the Big Govt Party, the D's being the other half. As I was looking for media bias against Ron Paul I found another FOX CINO, Laura Ingraham, who seems to be a sneaky, subtle understating CINO NEOCON shill when it comes to Ron Paul.

In this interview Laura interrupts Ron Paul quite often, vainly trying to trip up the good doctor.  She gets her lunch eaten.

The only shows left on Fox now that are worth watching are Stossel, Freedom Watch with Da Judge & Cavuto. I WAS a big fan of Follow the Money,  but when bottom line push comes to saving the country, Eric Bolling exposed himself as a CINO.

On Freedom Watch, Da Judge exposed the bias against Ron Paul by others at Phony Fox News & some other 'news' outlets. Da Judge played this clip:


Note the same guy who moderated the Fox debate & what he says. And does NOT say.

I am a TEA conservative independent. I used to have hope for Fox News. Now I wonder how long Stossel, Cavuto, & Judge Napolitano will survive because they still push for Constitutional liberty & have Ron Paul on their shows as often as possible. Plus they don't disparage Ron, they give him the cred he richly deserves by just letting Ron speak. Not a good thing at Fox these days...

Looks like Fox News' true Conservative In Name Only network colors are shining forth.
