Again, where is Ron Paul?

In the Republican chart, the blue pie piece is mostly Ron Paul, as the numbers at the bottom show that Paul is tied with Giuliani at 9% [who had his piece in the pie – editor, now that the video has been pulled].

Then they show the Democratic chart, which has no large unnamed area. They even give Richardson his own piece, though he only has 4%.

FOX show blatantly snubs candidate Ron Paul in Florida primary coverage

From: News Hounds

FOX and Friends this morning had multiple segments devoted to Republicans and the ongoing Florida primary today 1/29/08. Noticeably missing from their coverage was candidate Ron Paul, whose libertarian, anti-war platform is not condoned by the message-masters at FOX.
With video.

Ron Paul’s face appeared in a graphic of the candidates, twice, but his name, his standing, his supporters, his platform – not mentioned in the two-hour program.  …

“We report, you decide?” Only if “we” approve your message.

‘Dr. No’ Blackout: Supporters Lying to Be Heard

From: Not Just a Campaign, It’s a Movement, by Alan Stang

Notice that our Communist media still treat Fred and Rudy as major candidates while they do their best to ignore Dr. No. In a classic example, the New York Times, which has assiduously promoted Communism since Walter Duranty, reported the Nevada results of all the candidates – even Rudy Who and CFR Fred – complete with pictures, except the man who took second with 14%.

The other day, in a discussion about conservatism on the air, I heard a caller ask Rush Limbaugh about Dr. No. How the caller got through the screener, I don’t know. Limbag stuttered, said he “profoundly disagreed” that Dr. Paul expressed conservative principles, hung up and went to break. That was it; there was not a syllable of argument that proved Dr. Paul wrong, just Limbag’s expression of profound disagreement.

Somebody else called Republican front man Hugh Hewitt. The caller told the screener he was for far leftist John McCain, but on the air he shouted that he was for Dr. Paul. Hewitt told the screener who blew it that his check would be docked $10 if that happens again. Of course, Hewitt was joking, about the $10, not about his desire to squelch Dr. No.

Maybe the editors at the Times are too busy buggering each other to be aware of this, but they and right wing Communist talk radio scumbags like Hannatwit are destroying their own credibility, a symptom of the fact that the Old Media are dying. Of course in their death throes they are more dangerous than ever. I submit that for Dr. Paul to do as well as he has in the face of all this is something of a political miracle.

Dobbs Drops Ron Paul From Leadership Ability Questionaire

The questionaire is up right now at http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/lou.dobbs.tonight.

Consider that Ron Paul has beat Rudy Giuliani in every almost every state so far by a 2:1 or higher margin, and Giuliani still gets lots of air time—while Paul gets close to zero.

Charlotte Iserbyt writes:

How many of you watched LOU DOBBS TONIGHT… this evening, January 22, at 7 pm EST? If you did, you undoubtedly read the QUICK VOTE, but you were unable to vote since Lou Dobbs left Ron Paul out of his QUICK VOTE!

The question was: Which of the following candidates do you believe has the economic knowledge and leadership to guide the USA for the next four years?

The candidates he listed were:

Giuliani
2%

[…]

Total Votes: 20022

NO MENTION OF RON PAUL!

If I were Ron Paul, considering the treatment or perhaps “non-treatment” he has had by the establishment media, while other candidates have received coverage worth millions of dollars (FREE), I would quit the race for the Republican nomination and go Independent.

MSNBC Disgraceful Towards Ron Paul

Just 2 minutes ago I am watching the MSNBC coverage of the Nevada primary…. They then flash Obama, Hillary and Edwards graphic up showing 48%, 46% and 5% for Edwards.They then show the Republican numbers and only show two candidates numbers in their NEW GRAPHIC.

For the first time in all the primaries they decide to use a “top 2″ candidate graphic, because Ron Paul is a very close third place with 12%. In all other primaries they show the top three in their default graphic, and for the first time in all the coverage they decide its time to use just the top 2. They still show the top three in the Democrat race, event though Edwards is 36 POINTS behind the second place slot of Hillary, But the don’t show Ron Paul third when he is only 1% behind being in second place.

At 11am, FOX Shows Huckabee in 3rd Instead of Ron Paul!

According to Digg, this screenshot was submitted before 11 am (Pacific), today—before most Nevadans have even voted! Look who’s missing!!!

With less than 1% of the precincts reporting, Ron Paul is almost tied with John McCain for 2nd place—at 14% with 48 votes, compared to McCain’s 51 and Huckabee’s 26.

But FOX News shows Huckabee instead of Paul!

Ron Paul for President 2008 is saying it this way:

Once again the enemy of the people Faux News omits Ron Paul being in third place at the time of this graphic. Have any doubts as to how they censor Ron Paul? NEVER support Faux again!

Blatant Anti-Paul Media Bias: CNN Pie Charts [Iowa]

I’m watching CNN’s coverage of the Iowa Caucus, and I’m just amazed at the how blatantly they’re ignoring Ron Paul entirely. I have always considered the bias against him to be the result of his low numbers, but as I’m watching this I can only conclude that they just don’t want him getting attention. Let me explain.

On the screen they have these pie charts showing the percentage of votes for each candidate. The pie chart shows 35% Huckabee, 24% Romney, 14% Thompson, 12% McCain, and then a big gray slice that’s not labeled. Add those up. That’s 85%, which leaves 15% unaccounted for. You would expect this perhaps if that 15% was very evenly split among many candidates. So I looked at CNN.com for the full results. Here’s the shocker: Ron Paul has 11%. Look again at the numbers above. Ron Paul is only 1% behind McCain, who shows prominently in the pie chart on national TV. Giuliani has 4%, and no other candidate shows anything.

Then I look at the Democrat pie chart on TV. It shows 4 or 5 candidates called out, and then a tiny gray area for about 2%. There is no giant gray area with no name.

ABC Bans from TV the 20/20 Ron Paul Interview–Put On Net Only

Congressman Ron Paul and 20/20 host John Stossel have more than a few things in common. Specifically, they both think a lot of libertarian thoughts, and unlike a lot of libertarians, they’ve both learned to communicate these thoughts so effectively that they have earned the respect of their peers.

Paul, in his tenth Congressional term, is known as “Dr. No” for his refusal to vote for bills that cater to special interests, raise taxes, or violate his literal interpretation of the Constitution. Stossel, the Emmy-winning consumer reporter who discovered free-market theory via Reason magazine, has been permitted to air provocative specials such as “Stupid in America,” which criticized the government’s monopoly in education.

So what happens when the champion of freedom and free markets from the U.S. Congress sits down for a chat with his counterpart from the mainstream media? That’s when we learn that freedom is simply too hot for TV, or at least, too hot for ABC.

That’s right, they are only airing this interview on the internet, in pieces. And the justification is a laugh, at best.
