Yet again, it appears that the mainstream media has voluntarily surrendered their freedom of the press to bring home a paycheck.
I didn't get to watch yesterday's GOP debate live, so this morning I checked the mainstream media sources to read their coverage. I checked ABC, FOX, NBC, CNN, Yahoo, and MSN. It wasn't until I specifically googled the search string "Ron Paul New Hampshire Debate" that I found information regarding his performance.
In the first 25 minutes of the debate, only one question was directed towards Dr. Paul.
Every online poll I could find said Dr. Paul was the clear winner of the debate, and yet I had to SEARCH HIS NAME to find coverage. The focus was on Romney and his plastic smile, and then all of the other candidates, all of whom are BEHIND Dr. Paul in the polls in New Hampshire.
This media blackout is so very blatant that it feels like our coverage is censored like television in Communist Russia. Everything we see in the media is such utter propaganda that it is clear the media is attempting to undermine Dr. Paul's campaign.
The thing that gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach is that voters trust the mainstream media. Most people consider CNN to be the final authority for news. People watch the news to learn what is going on in the world, but most folks aren't going to search for the answers. They will believe what the press spoonfeeds them, and what the press is saying by ignoring Dr. Paul is that his campaign is not worthy of attention.
Dr. Paul's campaign must be won through alternative media. The beauty of 2012 is that there are so many ways to get the word out. If you are a Paul supporter, use your voices to reach as many people as possible regarding the unfair, biased coverage.
