Blowback begets BlowbackSubmitted by concise on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 12:41
I had the unpleasant experience of getting into my car with Neal Boortz on the radio this morning just in time to hear him complaining at length about Ron Paul supporters.
What he doesn’t acknowledge is that the media mis-treatment of the Paul campaign generates blowback from Paul supporters in the form of hate mail and calls. If the media treated Paul like any other Republican candidate—you know, report on his activities, success, etc—there wouldn’t be all of this negative reaction from his supporters.
But these supporters also need to realize that lashing out at talk show hosts and reporters generates its own blowback. Boortz is reacting very badly saying he’s less inclined to cover Paul because of his supporters’ rude actions.
So I’m here trying to appeal to Paul supporters to focus on the positive. Compliment reporters when they show fair coverage. Pass out Ron Paul tip cards and slim jims, etc., etc. (See this earlier posting for other ideas: http://www.dailypaul.com/172337/101-things-you-can-do-to-pro...)
Please no more name calling, ill motive accusations, yelling at reporters and all the rest. Thanks.
