I heard through local news.

And it will be repeated multiple times on the broadcast channel. I gave up pay television and only receive local broadcast now. You would be surprized how nany channels you can pick up.
Anyway it is nice to hear unbiased positive reporting on Dr. Paul. They also reported well when Paul won the Louisiana poll. This should do well for him.

Do I sense a tipping point

in the Lame stream media?

to be lazy I'll just copy and

to be lazy I'll just copy and paste from my blog:

The establishment is the federal government, large corporations, the military and “The Big 6”. To quote www.freepress.net on the subject, “The U.S. media landscape is dominated by massive corporations that, through a history of mergers and acquisitions, have concentrated their control over what we see, hear and read.” What that actually means is that they are able to depict events, by a series of tiny manipulations or misrepresentations, to best suit their interests.

How this relates to “Crazy Uncle” Ron is very simple, let’s take General Electric for example. They own many things including mainstream news outlets like NBC, MSNBC, USA , CNBC, etc, etc. They produce many electronic devices such as explosion detection systems for the Military and aviation systems for the Navy. General Electric (NBC) also makes many of the engines for the Military fighters, helicopters and transports. But what they make the most money from is weapons and ammunition. You can’t have munitions sales without a war (preferably perpetual war) and you simply can’t have a war with Ron Paul as president.*

I wouldn't hold my breath.

The MSM is going to fight us the whole way. Thinking otherwise is similar to battered wife syndrome.
"He said he loves me, surely he won't hit me again"

We have to BE the media, unfortunately.

Thankfully though:
"We have this new gadget called the internet" Ron Paul

Poll marginalization

So we all know that when RP wins a poll, the MSM either don't report it at all, distort the outcome (graphs not featuring a unified scale), or marginalize the poll by offering some inane excuse as to why it wasn't a good poll.

Has anyone ever looked back 4, 8, 12 years to these same media outlet's articles on the same polls? I've have a hunch that the articles would be talking about the polls as if they are a crystal ball into the GOP or Democratic nomination for president.

The results, I'm sure, would add another feather in the cap of the findings of the Pew Foundation about the MSM ignoring RP (so obvious to all involved, but nice to have the data).

2007 CA poll canceled because

2007 CA poll canceled because of too many Paul supporters.


That's really something. Thanks for sharing.

Okay, I am P#*sed. The LA

Okay, I am P#*sed. The LA TIMES referred to our beloved Doctor as ELDERLY! What the heck! I think we need to flood that page with some comments to show what jacka$$es they are.

If you walk blindly through life, you will run into a lot of walls.

What's the problem?

An article referred to an elderly man as elderly, I don't see the issue. I've always thought of the description as one that carried respect.

this: usage Referring to any


usage Referring to any group using the formula the elderly , the disabled is nowadays felt to be inappropriate because it glosses over people's individuality and perpetuates stereotypes. Many people also prefer to talk about older rather than elderly people for similar reasons

If you walk blindly through life, you will run into a lot of walls.

Sounds like political correctness to me.

Seriously, are people just supposed to stop using general descriptions? If the article referred to Paul as "older" rather than "elderly" I'm sure someone would complain about that as well.

It's great that so many want to defend Dr. Paul, but sometimes I feel it's done over trivial matters.

Ron Paul supporters "freak out volunteer"!

From San Francisco Chronicle

"And the crowd around him is so raucous that Paul, a physician, was actually turned away from the convention’s health care forum when he showed up with a chanting mob; a volunteer freaked out and barred the door, keeping him out."

Not sure whether to yell SWEET! or STUPID F---ER! at the screen!

I requested Drudge to add this story

Matt Drudge is usually quite fair :^)

Headline is now on Drude, yeah!

Thanks Matt :^)

Great work!

Good follow-up...


I was just over at a few other "conservative" sites and they're flipping out over this. According to them, Paul is a "loon" for not wanting to commit genocide! Half of them are so desperate that they want Palin to enter! Yes, yes! Keep diluting the neocon vote you simple-minded zealots!

Apparently, one cannot be conservative unless they get down on their knees for Israel. So, despite Perry's record of big government love and being a shill, he's still a conservative because he "loves Israel."

Why don't these Israel firsters just move there? Oh right, because they want everyone else to fight their wars. I've completely given up on the Israel crowd, as it seems they have their tiny minds made up.

A message from Israel

The Israelis (that are old enough for their childhood brainwashing to wear off) want us out of their internal and external affairs too. The nation of Israel can defend itself and will be less in danger if we stop screwing with it.


To clarify, my issue isn't with Israeli citizens, it's their government and Americans who almost literally worship Netanyahu.

I used to tell neocons how Israel as a whole would be better off if we just stayed out of their affairs (and vise-versa). I'd point out that some of our foreign aid goes right into the hands of their enemies, and how Israel has a far more advanced military than any other country in the area.

Like I said, nothing I have said or can say gets through to any neocons I know. To them, we *must* protect Israel and all Muslims must die or convert. Honestly, I find that frightening and can no longer associate with them.

CNN report

With his strong pull from Independents and the sensible

left, Ron Paul stands the best chance since Ronald Reagan to win California in a General Election.

None of the other candidates in the race presently have his appeal to Democrats and Independents - not even close.

Check this article out for a BIG SMILE


Hearst Publication/ San Francisco Chronical

Excellent article about CA GOP convention


Thank you so much for

Thank you so much for these..made it easy to check them all out. Seemed like nbc was the fairest, go figure..but the CA article was good.

Fox: Who would have thought otherwise....

The straw poll was not a prize that most campaigns were organizing for, according to Politico, in light of the state's traditional Democrat support.

"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey referring to ISIS

" Perry, who is the clear frontrunner"

I like how Fox inserts this line praising Perry as a frontrunner as Paul beats him in the poll with double the votes. They will be claiming Perry is a frontrunner when he is scoring 3rd place.

Thomas M. Gallion


The main stream media touted Gulianni as the front runner as well until the people started voting lol.
