Ron Paul Gets His Best Coverage From All The Coverage Covering His Lack Of CoverageSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Fri, 08/19/2011 - 06:26
Basically, yeah, the media have been ignoring Ron Paul, and a lot of the bandwidth went to Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump and Sarah Palin.
Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ) also went to additional efforts to assess the amount of coverage Paul received immediately after he narrowly missed a straw poll win. If anything, Paul's coverage was even further diminished:
Elsewhere, Kevin Drum says that "Ron Paul's 15 Minutes Are Up." The irony there is that Paul's "15 Minutes" were used up debating whether he deserved "15 Minutes" in the first place. Ron Paul, victim of metaphysics!
