A big thank you to RUPERT MURDOCH for exposing Dr. Paul and his views to the mainstream and helping him in the straw poll!Submitted by Zamp on Sun, 08/14/2011 - 10:44
A big thank you to Rupert Murdoch for helping Dr. Paul do so well in the Ames straw poll. His media empire has been largely responsible for getting Dr. Paul a lot of exposure to the mainstream. There are a few people that work for him that disagree with Paul, but that's to be expected. Freedom Watch and Stossel are shown by Murdoch on Fox News and Fox Business and explicitly push for Dr. Paul and his views of libertarianism and non-interventionism. They also give lots of time to representatives from the libertarian anti-war Cato institute that have been changing minds. No other news company is comparable. Thank you Mr. Murdoch!
Does Mr. Murdoch have neoconservatives who discriminate against Dr. Paul on the payroll? Yes. Are there libertarian employees who show bias TOWARD Dr. Paul and discriminate against neoconservative candidates? Yes. Fair & Balanced. Here is the Judge pushing hard for Dr. Paul prior to the last debate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zq5cnMrN058#t=3m37s Will you ever see that on CNN or MSNBC?? No way.
(It's about time to put the senseless conspiracy theories aside about Murdoch trying to destroy Dr. Paul and face reality. He's done more for Dr. Paul than any of us of done on our own. Mr. Murdoch even calls himself a "libertarian." http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,33716,00.ht...
