THE CORPORATE GOVERNMENT OWNED MEDIA IS SCARED ON RON PAUL.
Now that there are only four presidential candidates left in the race - two Democrats, Senator's Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton; and two Republicans, Senator John McCain and Congressman Ron Paul - you would think that CNN would finally have to shrug their shoulders and actually post the truth. You'd think now that Paul is no longer one of 10, or one of 5 - now that he's the only other Republican candidate left, they'd have to finally acknowledge him. You'd think wrong. On CNN's Election Center homepage today, the snapshot above is what they actually have up. Instead of placing Ron Paul next to John McCain, CNN has placed John McCain's head higher than all the other candidates (Democratic and Republican) with the caption "PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE" below him; and Mike Huckabee, who dropped out of the race this month, is in the place where Ron Paul belongs, with a stamp that lets you know Huckabee's "OUT."
Presumptive means "based on probability or presumption, reasonable opinion, or belief." Sure, President Bush and the National GOP have already declared John McCain the winner, as well. But all of these media outlets and even the Republican Party themselves have been the very ones who have refused to address Ron Paul all along. CNN got away with their unequal coverage in their Republican debate in Simi Valley, California in January. They've gotten away with leaving Ron Paul out of their articles, their interviews, their broadcast. It is highly ironic that when a major world event is going on, people flick on CNN, when in truth, we are only getting the version of the story that CNN wants to give us.
We got a message today from a reader named Linda Inveninato regarding our thank you to CNBC's Kudlow & Company for giving Ron Paul airtime last week to discuss the Federal Reserve and the gold standard. Linda wrote:
"Some time back, as we all became aware of the MSM [mainstream media] attacks and then blacklisting of Dr. Paul, my family and I stopped watching the MSM news programs in favor of Internet news presentations. It was through Yahoo News Alerts that we found you, ConnieTalk.
"It will take more than a single interview for us to return to watching MSM. 'Century of War' McCain, and 'end the Iraq war' liars Obama and Clinton receive hundreds of news spots per day. Their propaganda is like sugar to its viewers. Addictive poison...
"When will the MSM ask the tough questions to the frontrunners? Never. It's all a dog and pony show for our entertainment. We cannot forgive and forget the MSM abuse of all the peacemaker candidates. We now seek the truth, properly documented, through the Internet.
"Hopefully, someday there will be truthful television news media again...
"But, for this election, America will choose a president from liars presented by liars."
Linda, I couldn't agree with you more. It is a sad, sorry shame. But until the rest of America fully realizes - compares the internet to the boob tube and realizes just how this election is being manipulated by the mass media - the most I can hope to do is inform, thank those that stray from the MSM's blacklisting (like afore-mentioned Kudlow & Company), and voice my boycott to those that are blatantly shielding our eyes and choosing our options for us.
I encourage everyone to send letters of complaint en masse to:
