[VIDEO] 17 minutes of media bias against Ron Paul. Irrefutable evidence.

doubled the content.. Figured I'd make this last #honestmistake video before Super Tuesday. It runs a little long.. but give it a view and a share (if you're interested).

I retire!

New version out

I made a corrected version of this video...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqiCr-HTR-U

    • * Removes the serious issues as detailed in my previous comment & some similar issues I discovered later.
      * Volume tweaks: lowered 'ballet' music volume, increased Maddow clips volume, increased interviewer and Paul clip volume.
      * A single tiny cosmetic improvement
  • It's about 2 mins shorter, which is a good thing. The only drawback I can think of is that in a couple places the music skips (it was cut out along with video).. but the music is such that it's not too disturbing.

    I know that you are "retired", but...

    I found a couple serious flaws in this version.. Before I start I'd like to thank you for making these vids and mention I found the quality has gone up considerably from the first video to this one.

    Having even a single serious flaw like these takes away much of the video's sting:

    1) AT 3:19 Gingrich was actually 1st in that particular poll.
    http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2011/12/paul-closes-...
    So this had to be either a RP sympathiser in MSM "striking back" or an actual honest mistake!

    2) AT 11:17 'Best for last?'.. while I agree that this was made not-best-to-worst so they could place Paul at the bottom, it's also alphabetically arranged: Mitt-Newt-Rick-Ron. The more correct arrangement would be Gingrich-Paul-Romney-Santorum, but this is still justifiable as correct and neither a mistake nor intentional. It's worth it to pay attention to these things, but I believe including it here weakens the strength of the otherwise non-speculative video.

    3) AT 10:36 'Who is winning Michigan?' Ok.. he can be drawing biggest crowds, but still be 'not winning'. It sucks that the media don't report Paul's huge crowds but.. 1. what your text is saying is misleading and "taints" your video 2. it's an allegation of biased coverage that is something more arguable than outright omitting/ misplacing like in the rest of the video. It would need more time and context to be effectively conveyed. It looks out of place in the middle of a video like this.

    also some minor flaws I remembered, these aren't that serious:

    1) the frame with twitter graph omitting Paul seemed to go by too fast
    2) the newspaper page about Maine was unreadable until I switched to fullscreen.. there was some "long" screenshot that also made me pause the vid and look closer.
    3) the interviewer voice at the end seemed too silent.

    A few questions and criticisms

    1) How do you know this is the same poll? Just because the other numbers appear to match up?

    2) Why would you think they were alphabetizing last names by first names which did not appear in the graphic? Since when are names alphabetized by first name anyway?

    3) Which is a better measurement of 'winning' or popularity? People turning up to hear someone speak, or not, or a poll conducted on the telephone?

    Some minor criticism on your website ronpaulpoints.webs.com:

    1) Avoid using multicolored text. It's very tacky.
    2) Avoid using all capital lettered sentences. Ditto on tackiness.
    3) Avoid mixing multi-sized text within the same page or article. Titles should be the largest, subtitles second, and so on.
    4) Avoid using bold text repeatedly, except for highlighting the most important word or point. Another lesson in tackiness.

    The text of your website really needs to be cleaned up and made to look more professional if you expect people to want to read it.

    I'd say Danbojangles' video is much more effective than your website, and if anything needs more work it should start with your production first. That's some of the worst text formatting I've seen on a website in a long time.

    By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

    Psy-Ops

    These are all common psy-ops techniques: omit him from results so that people think he dropped out, put him at the bottom of lists so that even when he wins people have the illusion that he has lost, "accidentally" mix up results to show him in last place, laugh everytime his name is mentioned, do not mention his name without including "he can't win" in the same sentence, ask him if he'll support the "eventual" nominee in interviews, ask him if he's really running to win or is he just running to influence things or to earn a speaking spot in the convention. We're being conditioned to believe that he cannot win. This is absolutely deliberate and absolutely coordinated. To think it isn't is to be naive.

    This is a great one to share, especially to friends who say that RP just isn't electable. Thank you for all the work of putting it together.

    What happened to the vid or do I just repel technology now?

    re: the comments for "front

    re: the comments for "front page"...How do posts become embedded on the front page?

    Two things I find odd about this topic

    To be on the front page a moderator has to like your topic enough to put it there.

    Two things that are odd:

    1. This is a great video with over 65 votes up and a moderator has not even bothered to embed the video.

    2. Great videos like this produced by Daily Paul members usually do go to the front page.

    Maybe it just got overlooked. You might ask that your video at least be embedded here: http://www.dailypaul.com/mod-suggestion-box

    And maybe they will put it on the front page too.

    Why....

    did I watch this. Why! I already know their unbearably biased. Watching it just aggravates me.

    Great video

    looks like it was lots of hard work! Everything we do on DP or on youtube is like preaching to the choir. The brain dead people that we need to wake up and vote for Dr Paul are busy watching MSM and believing every misinforming word they say.

    If Dr Paul does not get elected, I truly believe that we have a financial colapse like this country has never seen. It may not be next year but it will come in the future. When that happens, people will look back in history to this year and at a man named Ron Paul and they will be thinking "what if we had elected a man like Ron Paul". The problem is: by the time they wake up it will have been too late!

    Keep up the great work spreading the word about Dr Paul.
