Media Blackout of Ron Paul
May 16, 2007 by David J. Heinrich

Ron Paul Amazing “What If?” Speech

Before MSNBC deletes these reader comments, I’m posting them here (MSNBC doesn’t have copyright over other’s comments). The following is an exhaustive listing of all of the comments up to the point of this posting. Despite winning MSNBC’s own polls, and winning Fox News’ listener polls, Ron Paul has been blacked out. It seems pretty clear that the way the nomination system works, and the way the mainstream media works, is to make it impossible for anyone but the “favored candidates” to have a chance. See Ron Paul 2008 for a video of Ron Paul’s answers in the debate.not much of a story…just a comment really, if i didn’t know who ron paul was before reading this, i certainly wouldn’t know after…you dont even mention he’s running for president or that he is a current senator…

Well, since the article was so short in details, here’s some of facts about Ron Paul: He has never voted to raise taxes. He has never voted for an unbalanced budget. He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership. He has never voted to raise congressional pay. He has never taken a government-paid junket. He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch. He voted against the Patriot Act. He voted against regulating the Internet. He voted against the Iraq war. He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program. He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year. Ron Paul is a representative of Congress from Texas’s 14th district. He is currently seeking the Republican party nomination for president.

Ron Paul won your own viewer poll. Yet, you are barely are willing to acknowledge his existence! It’s disgusting – and obvious to viewers! It is also quite obvious to all of us that Ron Paul is not one of MSNBC’s “annointed” candidates. The hypocrisy you show is astonishing. Is MSNBC part of a free press? Nope! You are part of a “machine” press that wants to tell us what to think. And you make it so blatant it would be funny if it weren’t so repulsive. Now go do a story about Paris Hilton…. it’s about all you can muster.

As a Congressman, Paul has: -Read the Patriot Act, and voted against it -Voted against going to war in Iraq -Wants to abolish the IRS -Wants to get rid of the Federal Income Tax Even today, individual income taxes account for only approximately one-third of federal revenue. Eliminating one-third of the proposed 2007 budget would still leave federal spending at roughly $1.8 trillion – a sum greater than the budget just 6 years ago in 2000! Does anyone seriously believe we could not find ways to cut spending back to 2000 levels?

Ron Paul is a Republican representative from Texas who has never voted to raise taxes nor has he voted for an unbalanced budget. He voted against the Iraq War and the Patriot Act. Check him out, he’s a great candidate! The Ron Paul Revolution, in my understanding, is simply a group out promoting Dr. Paul and his message. Here’s his campaign website:

We need to get the disenfranchised Democrats and Rebublicans to realize this fact. The left right paradigm has held the country back for many years. We need to wake the citizenry up and it seems that there is a real chance to do that but Ron Paul supporters MUST get the word out. The MSM has proven its not going to do it. I think it is also important to stress getting back to the CONSTITUTION and the BILL of RIGHTS. No other candidate will touch those subjects.

Actually Ron Paul voted against the USA PATRIOT ACT because he couldn’t read it. Nobody did. That was his first objection, as he so stated on the floor at the time … the legislation they were voting on was unavailable for ANYONE other than the Speaker to read at the time. So your Congressman voted your rights away without even knowing, or obviously caring, what he was voting on if he voted for the PATRIOT ACT. Business as usual from the Washington Party.

Ron Paul will have a chance only when you, the media, start reporting him. How can he poll high if the people —who’s job it is for you to inform— haven’t heard of him? How can he win if the people —who’s job it is for you to give unbiased coverage— are repetedly told he has no chance? The after-debate coverage of the May 3rd debate was a disgrace. While the paid talking-heads were opining about anyone but Paul, the public was voting him to the top of the GOP candidates. We choose our candidates, not the media!

As a scholar of international relations, Ron Paul’s perspective was a regurgitation of the consensus on the causes of 9-11. Giuliani attacked him in an attempt to prey on the fears of the American people. Right now I’m going out to my car, removing the Giuliani 08 sticker, and replacing it with Ron Paul.

It’s sad to see that a so-called ‘news event’ was so clearly controlled to benefit just a few candidates. There was no clear attempt to give the American people a chance to see what each candidate had to say on a given question. How about a debate that’s truly fair to all parties involved. One where the same questions is posed to ALL participants, and ALL participants get equal time to respond. Dr. Paul certainly deserves that much (actually more) based on his un-wavering many years of service to the American people, with such a high-level of integrity in the face of so much opposition and propaganda. Not to mention the fact that he’s probably smarter in the area of foreign policy than the sum total of all the candidates combined. To assume that the American people are now too stupid to see a blatant censorship like that which happened tonight on Fox is to assume that all is lost here in America.

I disagree with him on Iraq, but other then that, he would make a good president. If the democrats are still in power if he gets elected, I think they will shut him down myself. I remember when he was running for congress against some liberal moron named Sneary. The folksy voice on the radio would tell everyone what this liberal moron’s position would be and how he would help destroy america. At the end of the ad, you would hear “there’s something lerry about that fellow sneary”. Of course Ron Paul won hands down. He is a good man, but there is something gravel-esque about him and that is why he probably won’t win. Still, it would be fun if he was running against Obama and he tried to do an ad like he did earlier, just have to find something to rhyme with Obama.

With that said, we’re more than happy to pick up where you left off, provided you leave the comments without deleting them. By the way, if you want a story, you should consider investigating the deletion of comments on YouTube and Google Video.

Ron Paul: finally a politician who will speak the truth courageously and articulately. Rudy Giuliani should be condemned not only for his cheap, opportunistic attack on Ron Paul, but also because of his sheer lack of knowledge WHY militant Islamists decided to attack the United States. If he would read the 1996 & 1998 fatwas issued by Bin Laden, he would KNOW: the attacks were in retaliation for American meddling in the Middle East.

Yes, our “mainstream media” is bought and paid for, kind of like Pro wrestling…it’s all for show. The good news is that more and more people are waking up to that fact everyday. The propaganda machine is destroying itself over Ron Paul. The Neocons are going down ! **********Ron Paul 2008**********

Based on what I heard, Ron Paul didn’t justify the 9-11 terrorists’ attacks, he explained why Muslim extremists are targeting the United States. Thoughout history, empires have been attacked and challenged by disgruntled peasants and barbarians.

Ron Paul made me proud last night. It cost his campaign 25,000 to enter that debate and I’m very glad I contributed so he could educate me, FoxNews viewers, and not least Guliani and Hannity. Great, great points about Lebanon, Iran and Iraq.

If you want to know more about Ron Paul, take a look at U.S. House Con. Res. No. 40 of the 110th Congress. You will see that he co-authored that piece of legislation, currently PARKED PURPOSEFULLY BY THE CORPORATE CONGRESS, in committee, never to see the light of day. But to know where America is right now, you need to read every word. Go get em Dr. Paul!!!!!!!!

Ron Paul won the Fox News poll after the debate. No mention. That just illustrates that the people don’t decide these matters, it’s a handful of elitist party bosses and media spinsters that do. I watched the debate. He never said 9/11 was America’s fault, yet that’s the spin. Very Soviet like. We’re watching a propaganda machine mobilizing to destroy Ron Paul before our eyes, proving that this political system is corrupt beyond repair.

Rudy Guillani: I have never seen that commetn made at a Republican Presidential Debate. He’s right. The last time a comment was made like that(regarding entagnling alliances) was from Thomas Jefferson.

Ron Paul stood his ground in the South Carolina debate 5/15/07. He spoke the truth, and those who twisted his words can be found throughout big media. Listen to the entire set of debates if you want to know how threatened FOX and big reporters – as well as the favored candidates are – by Ron Paul. They want to silence him or freeze him out, or, failing that, mischaracterize him. Take a good look at Ron Paul. Listen to the man. Then ask yourself: what sort of person would be threatened by this man? A crook? A monster? A war profiteer? Someone who gets in the way of reindustrializing the United States? Oh. Yeah. Ron Paul for President 2008 if it takes bake sales and potato races make it happen.

Why does Paul poll so low in national polls? I’d say a good 40% of the country has never heard of him.

But I think all publicity is good publicity for the Dr., and smear attempts seem to only empower his hardcore base (which is probably less than 10% to be rough as possible, and me included). Hell, he beat GIULIANI at his own game in the FOX viewer poll.

His numbers are up too, marginally, but proving my above point: his hardcore base (me included) call bullshit on the media.

We can’t just shout out people like Gabriel who make good points about the nature of polling and campaigning, which is sadly a big part of the dominance of political parties in the nation, something never implied in the Law of the Land (the Constitution).

Again, any publicity for Paul is good publicity. Either way he’s guaranteed to gain the support of antiwar libertarians and conservatives who haven’t heard of him before.

Dr Ron Paul will be on CNN’s Late Edition (11am Eastern) today. I truly hope that during the next few months the whole world gets his messaage loud and clear, for the entire planet, not just America, badly needs a two-term Ron Paul in DC.

as an anarcho- capitalist, i will never vote. i will never donate. and i will NEVER run for public office. gov’t is what we are struggling against. ron paul is a statist. ron paul is a republican. ron paul is a politician. there is no room for political thugs in an anarcho- capitalist society. history will look back at statists as barbarians. how many people died in the 20th century due to statist wars, goulags, etc? i think around 200 million was the body count. if ron paul wants to be part of that, fine. i want nothing to do with the man, whatever his intentions are. abolish all gov’t and let the freedom begin. the only way to eliminate corruption is through freedom of association and competition, two principles in direct opposition to gov’t.

In Ron Paul you have the spirit of 1776. His ideas are explosive and a threat to the political elites of this country. By even permitting Ron, even a fraction of time in the debates they have let the cat out of the bag and have already lost.

Robert Brager spoke well. It no longer amazes me how close minded some of the people on the right are. It just saddens me. You people hate muslims and then look for any news clip, true or false, you can find to prove your point. Well let me tell you that if all of ME was christian, Israel would not exist today. (1) We in the west would be more considerate of Arab christian majority to hand over their land to our ashkenazi jews, and (2) we’d definitely not feel comfortable making war on christian masses regardless of how many Saddams there be, and (3) unlike muslims, Christians hate Jews for theological reasons, and while holocaust brought much shame to christians of the west, it never resonated with christians of the east. They felt no guilt. Their feelings towards Jews remain as they have for last 2000 years

What the election comes down to is David Rockefeller vs Ron Paul.

The puppet master needs to step out from behind all that he and his cartel has under their realm of influence (generally capture through bribery/blackmail)and tell the world why he and his elitist Nazi’s should have the right to mold the future.

The entire population of the world needs to stand behind and beside Ron Paul to insure that the most insane of all peoples on this planet (Zionists) are what is wrong with life, they despise freedom and liberty and welcome slavery and corruption.

They are always both sides of every war and sheeple fall for it every time.

We need to stop using “their money” and get back to barter and even community-based currencies.

The current system is a rigged game that allows the Zionists to take control of industry, government and ultimately the people.

They way of offering this monopolized service goes against all but the elite and those they bring into their criminal organization by using the counterfeit (fractional reserve) monies to bribe and to blackmail and to buy-up the media and other essential services. Enough is enough.

If you want to end war, end Zionism, it is that simple. The true criminals are known and the ones who assist them are just as guilty.

Possibly the world’s people can offer amnesty to those who the Zionist are blackmailing and who do their bidding for fear of public condemnation for doing what they did that allowed the Zionists to have the control they have over these people in positions of power in the first place. Many are not supporting them through shared ideals, it is through fear and through intimidation. If all that they control through this manner decided to stop enabling them with their agenda, they would be only a few as their greed deters them from sharing the booty that they gain through criminal activity.

it comes down this, David Rockefeller vs Ron Paul or Slavery vs Freedom, take your pick but use your brain and your heart.

All races, religions and age groups of people who make up the US need to join together as the powers that currently be want nothing more then continued unrest, prejudice, violence & confusion all tied in with materialistic/superficial ideals which makes the people ignorant and asleep to the truth.

Stop hitting the snooze button, wake the @#$% UP!

Everyone I know, myself included, support ron paul, whether they watch faux news msnbc or any other baised paid off propaganda broadcast

ok I was curious how much CNN let Ron Paul speak at the Simi Valley debate…
… I timed all the candidates

Romney> 29 minutes 56 seconds
McCain> 26 minutes 3 seconds
Huckabee> 16 minutes 5 seconds
Paul> 6 minutes 46 seconds

I may be off by seconds…hell even a minute or two….but it’s quite clear there is no fairness to this election from the media
