Budowsky: MSM like Pravda when it comes to Ron PaulSubmitted by freedom1776 on Mon, 09/19/2011 - 13:48
Over the weekend Ron Paul won a big victory in the California straw poll, leaving Mitt Romney and Rick Perry in the dust. And polls are starting to show Paul in third place, though many media covering the campaign, imitating Pravda under the Soviets, ignore Ron Paul in their insistence the Republican contest is a two-person race.
The issue here is not merely Ron Paul, who has earned far more respectful coverage than he has ever received. It is the Pravda-like herd of insider media who believe some candidates (like Donald Trump and Rick Perry) should be treated with media festivals, while others (like Ron Paul) are treated like the Soviet dissidents who disappeared into the gulag during the Cold War, and were treated by the Soviets as though they did not exist.
