After the Iowa caucus I saw a Fox discussion between pundits and a host that lasted for 10 minutes and not a single word about Ron Paul. They talked about Bachmann who is no longer relevant, they talked about Rick Perry who placed 5th, they talked about Gingrich who had disappointing results, they talked about Romney and Santorum, but not even ONE word about Ron Paul's strong showing and tie for 1st place in the delegate race.

Now Ron Paul had a major surge from 14% to 24% since Jan. 2nd in New Hampshire (gaining on Romneys big decline from 47 to 38%) and what does the news get hyped about and report instead?

They creamed all over Santorums pitiful gain from 9% to 11% in New Hampshire instead! If thats not a blatant conspiracy against Paul idk what is.

Just curious, what do you think is considered a conspiracy? I think most people agree that the media is ignoring Ron Paul, but there are other incentives besides the NWO for this to occur.

Geo is absolutely right on this one. The MSM's most significant coverage of Ron Paul has come from beating the dead horse that is his old newsletters. These have already been explained plausibly, yet they have tried to bring it up since they realize that the average American voter will not do any kind of research into the background behind them. As for positive coverage, there really has been none, all of it has centered on Paul being unelectable, or how the Iowa caucuses should be discredited had he won them (Chris Wallace of Fox said that).

The double standard is clear, whether you support Paul or not. When Paul was a front-runner to the Iowa caucuses, the media said that the caucuses really don't matter. When Santorum was gaining momentum, however, they said that a strong showing for him could build a base for the rest of his campaign (despite him having much less support outside of Iowa than Paul). Besides, the media has yet to bring up some of Santorum's nasty homopobic statements, while they have no problem digging up old dirt on Paul's newsletters.

Why the bias? All the networks are very pro-Israel from what I've noticed, especially the media empire owned by Zionist Rupert Murdoch. Therefore, they don't want to promote a non-establishment candidate who would significantly lessen America's role in Israel. Just my theory. Point is, Paul supporters like Geo and I are going to need to accept that the media will either ignore or smear him, and rely on the quality of his principles to convince the voters. (Also very ironic how the media calls Paul's message of a return to limited, constitutional government "radical ideas")

I thought the video would automatically embed..

Well, it's a video of CNN cutting off a soldier who supports Ron Paul due to supposed technical difficulties.

Technical difficulties =/= Censorship.

The fact that they even originally went to the headquarters shows that they were not censoring Ron Paul.

Also, Ron Paul really really sucks.

This is nothing but a baseless assertion. If you could prove your statement one way or the other, then it might be worth your time to open your mouth.

Ya, I agree. Not sending young Americans to die in needless, far off war-zones is horrible. More American deaths and higher budget deficits due to war is a very good thing.

Plus, removing political favoritism out of the economy and business world will likely lead to economic growth and higher living standards, which also sucks. I really, really wanna be poor, ya know?

Ron Paul has as much chance of being the Republican nominee as Dennis Kucinich does of being on the Democratic ticket. They're both loons and no one is going to pretend he's credible just because a bunch of starry-eyed college kids cream themselves when he talks.

I'd take Ron Paul over Santorum, and I even I think of Paul's policies are kooky.

Ron Paul tied for FIRST in the Iowa delegate race. Caucus votes dont elect Party nominees, delegates do. Look it up. Ron Paul won fair and square.

I'd support anybody who is a crazy right wing authoritarian. Unfortunately, Santorum doesn't even come close to my idea of an ideal candidate. However, out of everybody, he is the best.

Without liberty, we have tyranny. Is that really what you want?

I support Rick Santorum.

And what does he bring to the table, besides wanting to continue to strip away essential liberties from the American people?

That's not even a very good response in general, but its even worse when you haven't demonstrated anything above sub-par brain power so far.

Well then I hope you won't mind when a fascist dictator puts you in the gas chamber for supporting Rick Santorum or anyone else other than the dictator. I also hope you don't mind when your family is stripped of all freedoms and dragged to a civilian detention camp.

Death and enslavement yeah! Liberty boo!
