Will Ron Paul Ever Get Respected by the Mainstream Media?

For those of you who have already caught on, this is nothing new.  For those of you who haven’t, I’ll once again show the blatant disregard the mainstream media gives to Ron Paul’s candidacy for president.  This is one of the reasons why the grassroots are so fired up and will stop at nothing to promote Ron Paul any way we can.  We can’t count on the mainstream media to do their job or give Paul a fair shake.  I can bet you that no other candidates besides Paul has supporters organizing grassroots events out here in California such as tables, rallies, canvassing, and sign waving every week.  No other candidates inspire people like Paul does, and if you don’t believe me, check out the hero’s welcome given to Paul at the California Republican Party convention last weekend.  Thus, when I see the mainstream media still treating Ron Paul as a fringe candidate deserving no time, I have to call them out.

A recent example of this was the Fox News debate last week in Florida.  According to recent national polls, Ron Paul has climbed to a solid third place behind Perry and Romney.  One would assume that Ron Paul would get debate time commensurate to his polling strength.  Once again, this wasn’t the case, nor was it even close.  Here was the break down, thanks to HuntingtonNews.net:

Total Talk Time
Romney 12:09
Perry 11:10
Huntsman 07:41
Santorum 07:06
Cain 06:23
Bachmann 06:13
Gingrich 05:44
Ron Paul 04:33
Johnson 04:10
Total 1:05:09
% of Total Talk Time
Romney 18.65%
Perry 17.14%
Huntsman 11.79%
Santorum 10.90%
Cain 9.80%
Bachmann 9.54%
Gingrich 8.80%
Ron Paul 6.98%
Johnson 6.40%

By the numbers one would expect Hunstman or Santorum to be in a solid third place in the national polls, but their numbers are closer to Johnson’s who is around 1%.  In a two hour debate, the lone two libertarian voices, Paul and Johnson, only got four questions a piece and were relegated to the lower tier of attention.  One would think that in order to foster an honest debate, the libertarian perspective would be given more time because it’s uniquely different than all the other neo-conservatives on stage.  But sadly Fox was more interested in having the attention on the two plastic men, Perry and Romney, who bickered about who was more of a flip-flopper.  Those of us in the freedom movement really see no difference between the two and know they both represent the status quo.

To make matters worse, after the debate Fox News engaged in more shenanigans.  Once again they hosted a poll on their website asking viewers who won the debate, and Ron Paul ended up getting 40% of the votes and winning in a landslide.  Next day they pulled their poll, as is typical, but to add injury to insult they ended up posting an article claiming that Mitt Romney won the debate.  This is nothing new and has been going on since 2007 when Ron Paul ran for president.  Those of us in the movement, this is yet another example of why we need to keep working harder to spread the message.  For everyone else, this is why you shouldn’t trust the mainstream media.  If you care at all about truth and honesty, please get your news for alternative sources.
