NBC Evening News Blackout

....really upset me. Absolutely no mention of Ron Paul. Said Huck was in third with 9%. They showed some clips from yesterday's debate and it was obvious that they had RP positioned in such a way that they could cut him out of all camera shots. No mention...no camera shot....it was as though he was not there.

Add that to the excitement we all felt waiting for the RP event today and , then, nothing. Google RP news and very little comes up. Nothing about the Liberty Forum in old media. Nothing anywhere.

Despite the risk of sounding paranoid, while I was trying to get on the stream and coming back to the DP, this site seemed to be overrun with misinformation. Leave it at that. Nobody else is saying anything about *that* so I guess you didn't experience it.

What I felt today with the blackout is a real wake-up call to me as to what we are up against. It apparently goes way beyond being excluded from a round table debate. It is almost a foreshadowing of what it would be like with state sponsored news and no internet. We have to fight. Personally, I can't live in that kind of a world. We have to fight for a voice....we have to fight the media. Is there no legal recourse?

Local News

Since the national media won't pay attention to Ron Paul we need to call our local news stations when we have a rally or event for Ron. Most people that I know watch the local news more than national anyway - they want to know what's happening in their area.

Many Fox affiliates were complaining to Fox about Ron not being in the debate. I'm sure that they would be happy to cover anything local that has to do with the election.

On 1/12 there's going to be a rally here in Livonia, MI, a suburb of Detroit, and we're contacting all the local news channels. Not sure how many will show up but if it's only one that's fine. It will give Ron some television exposure that he won't get on the national news.

He's been invited

but no confirmation yet....

Is there no legal recourse?

Suing when no force has been used against Ron Paul is not a morally viable option. You can't force people to pay attention to our guy. No one has a right to news attention.

We need better strategy that makes news. Ron needs to generate news events that will get ratings for news stations that cover him. We needed better strategy to pressure FOX into getting RP on. It could have been done, but obviously we didn't know how to make it happen.

Leno tonight - that might generate some news, though don't bank on it. Huckabee was on Leno on the 2nd and I didn't see Jack in the news about his appearance. Of course, if Hillary Clinton or Obama made an appearance it would be covered far and wide.

Anybody know the old

Anybody know the old Sherlock Holmes story about the curious case of the dog that didn't bark when the racehorse was stolen ? The inspector mentions casually to Holmes... and the dog didn't bark... and Holmes replies... yes, THAT is the curious thing..

If you read the above post, you will learn that the media has a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. The better Ron Paul does, the more his message gets out, the more they will try to keep him off the air.

We've seen this before and it is police-state tactics masquerading as journalism.

And yet, no matter what they do, the Ron Paul campaign continues to grow. We see miracles and the media gets blowback. We need to keep the pressure up and expose the media and the CFR especially.

Thank you for your positive message

Yes, Dr. Ron Paul has wonderful karma and those of us who sincerely love and respect him do too. He mentions blowback in terms of government but it works in the media's abuse of power too.

I see this attempted media black-out as only serving to further our momentum and even more people hearing about Ron Paul.

I believe in good overcoming evil and I believe in miracles and positive thinking. We Shall Overcome.

There own by the Military industrial complex

Why do you think there all pushing Obama like right now on morning Joe

Give me Liberty or Give me death

Give me Liberty or Give me death

When will the the Giant

When will the the Giant Corporations realize, the more they try and block Dr Paul's message, the more fuel thay add to the "Revolution's" fire. They just fire up Ron Paul supporters even more, to get the "Freedom Message" out to more people, increase donations and make more people realize how oppressed we really are and dont even know it.

Mr. (Ron Paul) Smith goes to Washington # 2

I noticed the "mis-information" posts as well

And flagged some as offensive.

Seems like some are intent on sabotaging this site by trying to incite "improper behavior" to put it mildly.

NBC nightly news

The e-mail for NBC nightly news is nightly@msnbc.com.

I emailed nbc....nothing but censorship

This is what I wrote....

To Editor,

Your news is no better than Fox. You continue to censor Ron Paul from all of your news clips by not showing his poll numbers and marginalizing his run for the office of president.
Who are you to decide for Americans what candidate they get to hear from.
I am sick of you and all the mainstream media.

I curse your program with falling ratings AND LOSS OF ADVERTISERS.
Only until you decide to get back to reporting the truth without propoganda will the curse be lifted.

Sincerely,

Jesus is the saviour of the WHOLE WORLD, "As in Adam all die, so too in Christ ALL shall be made alive." (ICor.15:22) All means all. The pagan 'hell' of literal fire & eternal torment is a lie and is SPIRITUAL TERRORISM. http://www.hopebeyondhell.net

This Election has Changed my News Viewing Habits Forever

Fox? No way ever again will I watch if I have a choice, and when someone else's TV is tuned to it, I will be hearing their slanted spin. CBS and NBC? Largely biased in content and spin as well. In the hip pocket of corporate America. Uninterested in ethical journalism. CNN, ABC, and PBS (NewsHour), while lacking in some areas, have been BY FAR the most inclusive and fair in their coverage of the presidential candidates. My viewership and patronage of advertisers will certainly be altered. I will certainly avoid Fox News advertisers (peiodically googling to see who they are) from here on out, and tend to avoid CBS News and NBC News sponsors as well.

uphill battle

This is still an uphill battle. Those "powers that be" are going to fight as if their very fortunes depended on it.

Ron Paul really is 'Mr.

Ron Paul really is 'Mr. Smith goes to Washington'. If you haven't seen it in a while (or ever) check it out. Smith was up against the same type of organization and media. It's old and corny but worth a look when you have the time.

Mr. Smith

And we're at the point in the movie where Taylor's men crash a truck into a car load of Boy Rangers delivering newspapers with the headline, "Jeff Tells Truth."

I'm waiting for the phone call that goes: "Boys are hurt all over the city! Tell Ron he's got to stop!"

NBC is not a friend of America

and is part of the military industrial complex. GE makes huge profits from war. Did anyone see The Kingdom from NBC Universal? Total war propaganda.

Yes, GE is a huge war

Yes, GE is a huge war profiteer. Didn't bother with The Kingdom. Looked stupid.

2nd amendment

if Dr Paul/we fail, that's just down the road...lock and load!!!

take care and God bless Ron Paul...

I told my dad about my support for Dr. Paul, so. . .

he watched the last debate. And, although he agreed that Dr. Paul may have the right outlook, I couldn't get him to confirm his support. Some people just will vote for other things besides strictly issues. Sad, but true. It may be reflecting itself in the polls.

Of course, a surprise showing in NH would change everything.

same here

But also a few weeks ago, I bet my dad that if RP raised over 6M dollars on the teaparty day, he would vote for him. To make things sweeter, he'll be switching over from the Democrat party to do so.

These films are very convincing

Give him a copy of Alex Jones "Endgame" http://infowars-shop.stores.yahoo.net/endgamedvd.html, or maybe Aaron Russo's "Freedom to Fascism", http://www.freedomtofascism.com. These films are very informative documentaries on what really is happening today. Give him a reason why he needs to vote for Ron Paul.

i would be cautious about

i would be cautious about recommending Freedom to Fascism as a credible film. while it is an interesting movie, Alex Russo (RIP) did owe the IRS $2,000,000 so it was not exactly an objective movie. i was given several copies at a local meetup group but decided against distributing them

Aaron Russo not objective?

On January 7, Sparty said, i would be cautious about recommending Freedom to Fascism as a credible film. while it is an interesting movie, Alex Russo (RIP) did owe the IRS $2,000,000 so it was not exactly an objective movie.

Then by the same token are we to believe that those who participated in the original Boston Tea Party were not objective because they owed a tax on Tea?

Don't cop out!

Does a man falsely accused of a crime lose his objectivity because he has been accused? Sounds like you have been brainwashed - scratch that - brain clogged.

YeaH, or just have him watch

YeaH, or just have him watch these town meetings, which are so different from the other candidates' meetings you could hardly compare them.
