Fox News: "Romney Weeks From Implosion" Caddell says: "I think we have no idea how crazy this is about to get."

"Media Taking Ron Paul Seriously?":

Gingrich isn't the only one guilty of "Serial Hypocrisy"...

"Romney Weeks from Imploding":

Gingrich's "rocket" of momentum won't last past Iowa, Romney's campaign is done, but still one of them will get the nomination?

This is COMPLETE denial! Cain was all but written off by the media before he surged to first place. Cain implodes...THEN Gingrich surged to first place after being all but written off by the media for MONTHS. Ron Paul's rise to the top tier has been pushed to the side and ignored by the MSM in a casual manner that keeps most people from getting curious. If ANY other candidate besides Dr. Paul was in second, there would undoubtedly be a media frenzy around them and it would be declared a three-way race. This blatant biased towards Ron Paul needs to stop...

Pat Caddell has no clue how right he is when he starts off by saying, "I think we have no idea how crazy this is about to get". Four more weeks until Ron Paul's victory in Iowa shakes the foundations of the political establishment and proves the MSM wrong!

Ron Paul, the noisemedia, and possible success

While I wish that Ron Paul and his ideas would get more attention, and more respectful attention from the daily fishwraps and squawkradio and the lobotomyvision chatterboxes, We have to admit that their "embargo" hasn't hurt him very much this time 'round.

By circumventing these noisemakers, we ARE introducing more and more voters and taxpayers to Ron Paul and the people who are supporting him for the Presidency. We have been doing this despite the almost frantic efforts to marginalized him (and us) and to mischaracterise this Presidential race as a run between seven (or however many) mental and moral dwarfs against the incumbent Barack O'bomber. An ever-growing number of people are ever more unhappy with the choice(?) offered them, and are demanding someone better, and Ron Paul is shown to be that "someone better"!

What advantage does such media coverage confer, anyway? Look at the Media Gods of this race, from President Obama on down. President Obama was virtually WORSHIPPED by the print and electronic noise generators since his nomination, much less his election in 2008. His approval ratings have been at their lowest point for the past few months, and are going nowhere! Similar obsessive media attention has been lavished upon Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Newt Gingrich along with a Goofy, Dopey, or Sleazy I may have forgotten. It hasn't, and doesn't do THEM any good, they were, and are, here today and gone tomorrow; there is little reason to believe that it would do Ron Paul any good, even if they gave him the same amount, and kind, of attention!

These media are basically hustlers and (at their best), entertainers, and cheap, tawdry, often stupid ones at that. They are primarily a mechanism for selling debt-ridden people more overpriced, shoddy products that we don't really need or want, running up more debt on our credit cards, and catching our (public) attention with sights and sounds of interest mostly to people stuck at a permanent level of maturity(?) characteristic of 13-year-olds.

How do you expect them, or anyone like them, to explain e.g. the flaws of American Post Cold-War foreign policy in terms of the principled, America-First non interventionism championed by Ron Paul? How do you expect the electronic medium that gives us the likes of "America's Top Model", America's Most Wanted", "Cops", "Jerry Springer", and VH-1, MTV, and "Lifetime", to really explain the Misesian underpinnings of Ron Paul's criticism of the FED, and why that disreputable gang of embezzlers, counterfeiters, and frauds should be dismantled, if not jailed?

To ask such questions is to answer them. The noisemedia ignoring Ron Paul's run for the Presidency are suitable (ONLY) for selling over-prescribed Pharmatoxins, the latest automobile clunkers, ladies' hygiene products, Fast "food" slop, and nowadays, the services of accident lawyers, State lotteries, and Debt-management or Bankruptcy services...

We are doing a great job at public outreach with our bypassing these clowns and crooks! Keep up the good work!

Sorry - ignore this

Sorry - ignore this

They looked SO confused on what may happen in this election.

This primary is going to be one for da books.

Who is this man Ron Paul?

And why is he trying to save my country?

I love liberty like fresh cool air in my lungs.I love freedom like fresh cool water on my tongue.I love peace like the smooth skin of my sweet lady.And Dr.Ron Paul is the hero I believe will change the world.

Is it just me

or was that excruciatingly painful to watch? I'm not talking about the fact that they completely dissed Ron Paul...I expected that. I'm talking about the two political anal-ist. They are the absolute worst political hacks I have ever seen. Someone pays these rectal rimshots to squirt their bile on TV? my,my

so many lies

in the 2nd vid, they are praising Cain as if he was the only candidate who brought economy into focus with his stupid 999 !! have they not heard of RP's plan ? these ostriches wont feel very good after iowa !

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

I'm convinced that

I'm convinced that Ron Paul would be ahead if the mainstream media treated him with respect. Instead, they downplay every gain and distort his views to make them come across to viewers (and listeners) as Un-American and kooky. For some reason, they have no problem prejudging Dr. Paul for the audience.

I realized something the other day when looking at a break down of poll results. Ron Paul is doing really well with younger voters, but not so great with older voters, particularly seniors. I was pretty distressed to see that and I was wondering why that was the case. Ron is a senior himself and so damn respectable it's not funny.

Then it hit me. Every senior that I know still gets their news from TV and radio. Sure, they might jump on email now and then, but they are not surfing the web. They ONLY hear what the MSM news and O'Reilly, Hannity, Rush, Beck tell them. They simply do not see any of Ron Paul's internet videos. They don't look him up on YouTube and see his old speeches. They don't investigate his claims on their own or even go to candidates' web sites.

Obviously, younger people are much more savvy about getting to the truth on their own using the web. In a generation or so, our whole population will be used to alternative media and used to seeking out information. Unfortunately, the current generation of people who remember Walter Cronkite, are set in their ways and stuck with whatever is fed to them through TV and radio. They hear no other voice.

We know older people are not stupid. If the information given to them was not so twisted, I'm positive so many more would see the light. Unfortunately, almost every sentence they hear directly says or implies that Ron Paul has no chance and has "extreme views".

So sad. Any ideas of how to get the truth to older people en masse?

Ron must do what Ross Perot did

Buy broadcast time to do a half-hour program that very clearly lays out what Ron believes in and what his plan for America means for voters. Also, he should be very candid about why the corporate-owned media and existing political system has a vested interest in seeing him fail, but he needs to spend all of his time describing in plain English (in other words, not in the language of an Austrian economics expert or Washington politician) why it is essential for the growth and security of America that he be elected.

I love it.

I love it. I would love to see that. But! Only if Ron pulls it off well and does not come across as reading cue cards like some of his other addresses. Oh, yes, and also like you said - plain English, not Austrian economics guru.

To reach more Americans, Ron needs to keep speaking like people are hearing him for the first time. I know it must be very difficult for him to do that since he's been talking for over 30 years, but the truth is that most Americans are still hearing him for the first time and need the simple messages to sink in.

Yes, a script written for him

Yes, a script written for him by a Hollywood script writer or a proven, successful Washington speechwriter would probably be best. He tends to speak in terms that cannot be fathomed by average Americans. His team cannot expect the typical viewer to be curious about what he is talking about. It must be completely clear to a layman.

I would not go so far as to say a Holloywood script writer!

I would not go so far as to say a Hollywood script writer, but there needs to be SOMEBODY like Tom Woods that can at least direct the film. Obviously, Regan knew how to act. He knew how to get busy people to stop and listen to his message through his eloquent speaking style (and writing).

Yes, Ron Paul has a great message and yes, we love him partly because he's not a phoney. He is sincere and you can tell that. I would never try to get Ron Paul to be told what to do or what to say. BUT! As great as he is, nobody is perfect and the fact is that he needs help conveying his message to everyday people, NOT just people like us that are pro-active about seeking liberty.

Ron is not all bad. He has some great speech moments. He just needs to go more with those moments that work well, and lay off the Austrian economic cycle. I wish he would never say the word "Austrian" for the rest of the campaign. He's assuming that people know what he means, but they are not that far along. Forget preaching to the pundits. Aim for the people!

Make each speech in your campaign like the fate of our country is in the hands of a single high school student.

For the people that disagree, consider this: Did you ever buy a "Blah for Dummies" book? Yes? Me, too. Does that make you stupid? Nope, that just means that you wanted to start of with the simple concepts before things got complicated. Same here. A few of us Americans are right with Dr. Paul, but most are not there yet!

Ron needs more outsiders and fewer insiders

working on his campaign. He needs some people who can tell him "no" when it counts and convince him that he might be right, but if voters can't understand him, he'll lose.

Speading the Word

I have to agree with you totally. I live in Florida and it is amazing how many seniors especially, neo-con christians, who don't hear about Dr. Paul. I would love to find solutions to solve this, one: I will be handing off super-brochures to friends prior to voting in the primary in January. We recently did a sign wave and got positive response. N. Grinch, was in Naples just last week, pushing his propaganda on the seniors.

My question is ... when is Ron Paul going to make stops in Florida to get his message out? Mind you, when Herman the Cain Train was here, he won the straw poll. Florida is a deciding factor and I really would love to get the word out about Ron Paul. We are mailing super brochures in Florida precincts to help getting Ron Paul on the ballot.

That's all.

My 101 year grandmother said

"he is too old."

That is exactly what my mother said.

That is exactly what my mother said, too, but she's only in her sixties.

Weird to have all this ageism from older folks.

Damn coercive media.

It's worse than that!

Don't forget the newspaper. Seniors get their news from newspapers!!! They actually subscribe to and read those God-awful things!

As awful as our present situation is, I thank God for the fact that (at least for now) I have access to so many alternative news sources via the internet. 25 years ago, the average person had no choice but to hope that the MSM was doing their job and actually digging for the truth. Today we realize that the MSM does just the opposite (and I'm sure that they were doing much the same 25 years ago), but for senior citizens, they're still used to that old medium, so they're being spoon-fed pure propaganda on a daily basis.

Oh Yeah

Oh Yeah. I forgot about newspapers. As I recall now I was in a restaurant this afternoon for a quick bite and sat at a table near an older guy. He was reading a newspaper and I was browsing the web on my iPhone. I think I was even checking the donation ticker for Ron Paul! I remember thinking "oh yeah... they sell newspapers somewhere...I forgot about that".

Thank God for the internet. Seems like it came just in time to save us from the Media.

Many of the older generation

Many of the older generation simply don't trust the content posted on the InterNet. The older generations are conditioned to trust TRADITIONAL sources, e.g. newspapers and TV, although those sources are the biggest purveyors of propaganda. Regardless of your opinion of Alex Jones, there's a war on for your mind, a seemingly incomprehensible fact to many older folks.


Newt will implode in 2 weeks or so. Lies will never work this time around. This media DBags are really appalling to promote Newt was really their last card. Last man standing will be Ron Paul. He's like a rough stone being polished and Ron's true color has come out in brilliance. Ron Paul is multi faceted in every aspect. Be it economy, politics, foreign policy, geo politics, military and defense, sound money, end the fed. A candidate like this caliber only comes 1 in 100 years. With the support of American people all the way through Ron Paul will be our 45th president in the united states.

i hate

i hate i hate i hate all of these msm douche bags.

and god i can't stand those stupid pollsters in the second video. oh man they make me want to punch something fat and in a suit.

I like how the video starts

I like how the video starts off "free of bias" and then it goes off into their own predictions.

"Free of bias"

Love these guys' shtick: "We're free of bias". Their shtick is to talk "seriously", in a monotone voice, and come across kind of boring overall. They want to come across like some sort of a CSPAN-flavored FOX news show, hoping that people equate boring and unemotional with "serious." To the blogger who posted this: Thanks for making me waste several minutes of my life watching that. No real mention of Paul in there (good nor bad). This is really just more of the same: Ignore Paul as a "serious" candidate.

I guess we'll see how it all turns out in Iowa. I hope that Dr. Paul surprises everyone, but it's a terrible uphill battle with all of the MSM conspiring against him by treating him as an "un-serious" candidate. The average American boobus gets all of their info (and opinions) from the MSM and their friends (who get their news from the MSM), so it won't be easy, and I'm frankly pessimistic about it all. By the time they get a semblance of a clue, it will probably be too late.

coming across as boring on purpose

The MSM will never support Ron Paul

Do not get your hopes up that the MSM will pay attention to Ron Paul after a victory in Iowa. Look at who the advertisers are for the large media outlets. The banks, military industrial complex, oil and the pharmaceuticals will all take major hits to their bottom line when the Paul policies go into effect. They will ignore him as long as they can, and when they do start to write significantly about him, it will be vicious. There may be better coverage in the smaller outlets where the advertising dollars are not as dependent on companies that get federal subsidies.
Prepare for the long haul and lots of hard work. The revolution will not be televised.

The Last Line of Your Post Says it All-

"The revolution will not be televised."

That's exactly right. We don't NEED the old media. All we need is people talking to their friends and family and neighbors. People instinctively know the truth when they hear it and "the Media" has no response to that. They're paid liars and, in their gut, people know that.

No army can stop an idea who's time has come.

The government and media are good at stopping ideas

Let's see..
- Let's focus on cutting government spending instead of raising taxes (Tea Party).
- The government shouldn't be corrupt and bought by the bankers (OWS).
- We should bring troops home and prosecute Bush/Cheney (Democrats)

Somehow those ideas were stopped cold.

Isn't it amazing....

no matter how wrong these people are, they always retain credibility within the media.

These same people, three weeks ago were calling a Romney nomination "inevitable".

Romney is not done at all and is the only rival.

Romney is the only rival. These commentators are being idiots. Noone has yet to target Romney so he is walking off easily and possibly to the nomination as noone has yet to expose his shadiness.
