Corporate Media Switches Tactics, Attacks Ron Paul

http://www.prisonplanet.com/corporate-media-switches-tactics...

The establishment effort to keep Presidential candidate Ron Paul out of the public conscience has failed and desperation tactics have set in.

Politico has taken it upon itself to dredge up an old and thoroughly debunked story in an attempted attack on the Congressman’s character.

“…there are reasons why Paul, and his fan base, might be grateful for the minimalist coverage that he’s received,” writes Maggie Haberman.

“… a more thorough vetting of the kind that mainstream candidates generally receive would invariably lead to some of the newsletters that bore his name (if not his byline or direct authorship) decades earlier.”

Haberman links to a three year old New Republic report which suggests that Ron Paul was responsible for racist and bigoted newsletters that were written in his name in the 1990s.

This is the exact same desperate tactic that was employed when Paul ran for president in 2008.

Amongst the ludicrous smears directed toward Paul at the time by The New Republic was the claim that Paul had referred to Martin Luther King as a “gay pedophile”.

In reality Paul has noted King as one of his heroes on many occasions. Indeed, the only time that the Congressman has ever voted for something that is not explicitly authorized in the Constitution, it was for America to recognize Martin Luther King day as a public holiday.

The media presently exists for one purpose:

to promote endless war.

Ron Paul is the only candidate who threatens the Establishment's hold over the sheeple's fully-programmed WAR mentality.

If Ron Paul said today, "Oh, the neocons were right, we DO need to occupy Eurasia!" he would instantly become more popular than Obama was at his height of popularity. He would be the New Messiah. ALL media outlets would clamor to regale him with honors, flattering images of his face would grace every magazine and newspaper, the talking heads would say his name constantly. We would be totally saturated with Ron Paul. Because the Powers That Be know how dangerously GOOD he is, how appealing he is to people who pay attention.

I would bet everything I own, I would bet my LIFE they would do this.

when i bumped this

My current forum topics list had, in order:
- 'stupidest attack article ever'
-'corporate media switches tactics, attacks ron paul'
-'blowback begets blowback'
-'the end of corporate media'
Not sure why i posted that...hmm. seemed cool at the time.

Im, for one, pleased and welcome all attacksanybody thinks they have because little do they know, we are right. What is it... first they ignore you, then they fight you, then you win?

Fret not LL. Ad hominem attacks simply mean they have no game.

They've shot their wad, and this is all they have left.

Next, they'll just start lying outright and hope that we don't catch it and nail them to the wall on it.

But of course we will catch them, and if they try that, many careers will be short lived.

This will end when journalists (so called) decide that it is much easier to just honestly cover the race than to try to steer it. That will require pressure on their paychecks, and the prospect of jail time. (somewhere somehow, unduly influencing the election will likely come into play)

O'Reilly's Days are Numbered

Your comment here is why I think it's not good but right that Ron ignore O'Reilly. Not to ignore him for the time being but for all time. Once freedom kicks into gear, O'Reilly will be finished.

hmmm

Something I just caught onto. Isn't it interesting that you never hear anything in the media about any other candidates supporters like you hear about us? lol :-) This IS a powerful movement..

"I have found that being rich is not about having the most but about needing the least"

good point

The Status Quo is terrifed of us.

We Are No Sheep!

Oh how sweet it will be to remove pigs from the feeding area...grabbing their heads and placing them under arrest!

They've run out of ammo!

Now they have to go dig in the trash can. What a bunch of dirty rotten mean people in media!!! I read about it earlier this afternoon and it kind of didn't surprise me at first, but realized the media is out of ammo. It makes me mad they had to bring this crap up again.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

Well...

I better plan a trip to California during that time, and we better have some very long ropes. :O)

So let me see if I have this

So let me see if I have this straight:

All these people who constantly cheerlead for the murder of Arabs and Persians and Africans think Ron Paul (and his supporters?) is a racist because they don't like some politically incorrect language in some newsletters from 20 years ago?

Just making sure I'm following the logic here...

Demons always hate...

That is what their hearts are all about.

The question for every human being is "do you want to end up with the demonic spirits in hell?"...

Standing tall for Liberty
should not be difficult.

Haha

We all knew they were going to pull that old rabbit out of the hat sometime.

They are so desperate it's funny.

Let them waste all their immunition early on. It's a long race.

I think they are learning about blow back. Whatever they do they create more Ron Paul supporters.

We are winning!

Good find legalize!

Thank you Lars

I am watching CNN for many hours now and I am yet to hear Ron Paul's name...Perry and Bachmann was mentioned at least 20 times...what a joke CNN is.

I stopped watching TV last time around

The less I watch the happier I get (and wiser I believe).

me too

Life is much better without TV. I broke my TV and cancelled the cable after Carl Cameron's electability question last time. Screw the MSM. Just as guilty as the crooks in office.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

I quit watching State Media

I quit watching State Media 15+ years ago. Best decision one can ever make. And now when there actually is something worth watching in the vast morass of drek, we have YouTube and guys like MoxNews clipping the relevant bits out so we don't have to suffer through all the smarmy, blow-dried, head-jerking, eye-rolling losers. Whee!

Right

There is just no need to turn on the TV anymore when you have places like the DailyPaul!

I refuse to listen to MSM lies

internet has it all

Same with Fox News. It's

Same with Fox News. It's quite sad actually.

Why?

Why?

Why Ron Paul supporters avoid commenting on such articles?

Do you really think things will change while you stay silent?

As it stands right now America is lost.
You will not have any more second chances...you failed you forgot what the Founders told you to keep in your hearts.
