Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

This was my response from Susan MacDonald


Thank you for your inquiry. I believe that you are inquiring about something that you saw on WISN 12 News, and not the "UpFront with Mike Gousha" program. However, I will point out that Dr. Paul's event in Madison last Thursday night was covered and was presented in our news that evening. Dr. Paul has not done any other campaigning in Wisconsin to our knowledge, and was not at the Saturday event in Pewaukee that drew the other three major candidates. We recognize that he has a very devoted and not insignificant following. But until he begins winning primaries or caucuses, starts to move up in the delegate count, and actively campaigns in states like Wisconsin, his coverage is not likely to become more than it is now. Even the networks have pulled their last embedded correspondents from his campaign.

Best Regards,

Yesterday you aired a segmant with Abe Lubetkin (http://youtu.be/ldMMDm_ed00) on "3" candidates that pulled a crowd of what looked like less than 1000 conservatives. A pretty weak crowd considering you had all 3 candidates to pull 1000 people.

The 1 candidate you did not mention Ron Paul who is also running pulled over 5200 people . You failed to mention him once, and you presented the election as if he doesn't exist. You can see that rally here as evidenced by this video (http://youtu.be/chqAJEAjYa4) he not only very well does exist, he is pulling bigger numbers than the other 3 candidates combined. Not to mentioned he just raised over 1 million to keep his fight going regardless of the media black out. NO COVERAGE?

By not reporting what's happening in your own back yard you are lying to your listeners and it's not going un-noticed.

You think the Babylonian media is going to play fair?

Hahahahahaha, time to wake up!!

Call and boycott their advertisers, EVERY day.
Then expect coverage.

They call it the Federal Reserve Media complex for a reason, you realize....

I agree

Paul Ryan has NO credibility now...

Isaiah 2:4
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

He never had any

his budget is crap...he voted "yay" to the HR 347 which criminalized free speech. So much for "congress shall pass no law..." He's a wolf in sheep's clothing. For the national attention he receives and the popularity he has, it's sickening to watch someone like him do what he does.

Public Relations 101

When the media won't show you any respect to cover you, you bring in "people" that are irresistable for them to ignore. in Ron Paul's case, they would have to bring in celebrities. The media will turn on a dime to cover what celebrities are doing in town. It's a little late in the game now, but the campaign should have been seeking out notable clelebrities to accompany Dr. Paul at him campaign rallies. Not some old local alderman, or tea party wannabe. The perfect example would have been Phil Donahue in Florida. How about a Joe Montana in California? How about a Barry Manilow in New York. The Paul campaign has flung Dr. Paul out on stage all by himself. Sure, we like, and believe in his message, but as just himself, he's easy to brush aside by the media as a one man cause. I'm afraid his campaign staff just doesn't get the public relations game. I'm hoping the delegate gathering strategy will lead to a brokered convention, but don't look for the GOP to welcome Ron Paul with open arms at all. Far from it.

PR 101 "You have to pay to play"


Free includes debt-free!

I don' t presume they report news, even if they call it news.

I paid nothing for it and I expect nothing from them.

They run content paid for by sponsors. To get on TV you have to pay the piper, big time.

No pay, No Play.

It is only a blackout if you can believe that they are motivated to report the news.

But, as evidence that they are little more than entertainment programs, where reality is scripted by the highest bidder, blackout fits the bill.

Free includes debt-free!

What goes around

comes around. DirectTV has dropped WGN from its programming. It hysterical to see them pandering to their audience to call Direct and tell them they want WGN. WGN has been blacked out. Now they know how it feels. I'm lovin it.

Ron Paul Was Right

KHOU in Houston did the same

KHOU in Houston did the same thing, asking the audience to call and write Direct TV to keep from being dropped.
So, I emailed KHOU and told them that because they were blacking out Ron Paul, or giving him very little coverage compared to the other candidates, no matter how many people requested they cover his campaign, that I would not be willing to write to Direct on their behalf.

RON PAUL 2012 * Restore America * Bring The Troops Home

I just called

4149371212 the "news" room and asked why they didn't mention Ron Paul he had over 5,000 at his rally. The angry lady on the phone said "YES WE DID WE HAD HIM ON THE OTHER NIGHT IF YOU WOULD WATCH" I responded "well i just watched your newscast from my DVR from last night and you definetly left his name out and said all 3 candidates" She said back in an even more angry voice "no we said his name if you were watching thank you" and hung up. Maybe she needs more Ron Paul people to call her?


Maybe that's exactly what she needs!

Excersize in Futility

Calling the media to show them their wrongdoing is like calling Hitler and telling him that his troops just wiped out France's army.

WTF are you people thinking?


They do this in California, too...

I sometimes turn on the local news here in Los Angeles. Whenever they cover "Decision 2012", they say the exact same thing: "Three Republican Candidates."

Download Ron Paul Pamphlets Free!

Ron Paul pamphlets on Abortion, Israel and the Federal Reserve written from an evangelical perspective can be downloaded free from the attached web site. These pamphlets are very effective on Christians that really care to know the truth. Give them a try and tell other Ron Paul supporters!


If we Do then we will have tacitly approved of their dirty Anti-Paul tricks.

From the media all the way to the GOP primary/caucus process.

I hope Dr. Paul remembers all these things when it comes time to endorse (OR NOT ENDORSE) someone.

If he doesn't run 3rd party then I hope he goes rogue like he did in 2008 and supports a candidate OTHER then Romney.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Unfortunately, I've lost respect for the Campaign, because~~

there has been no "official" protest from Ron or Campaign Headquarters regarding the GOP scamming of delegates, only mere mentions of it.

What I have said we needed is to file lawsuits against the private enterprise of the GOP for discrimination, and for delegate robbing and "election engineering" which is illegal, and I don't care what anyone says about whether the campaign can do this or not.

ANYBODY CAN FILE A BILLION DOLLAR LAWSUIT. They may not win it due to the court corruption, but it would certainly bring the campaign much needed publicity, and it wouldn't make Dr. Paul look so WEAK as he appears now due to Media bias. I would make it a BILLION DOLLARS, because we aren't talking about a fender bender here! This is major. A MEDIA LAWSUIT should be filed as well, difficult to show proof, because they "muddied" the water with favorable interviews as well. Still, it can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was MASSIVE MEDIA BIAS in the beginning and throughout. We have massive proof of this.

But since the campaign has failed so many supporters who need a REAL LEADER to stand up against the GOP, well, that's why the funds are diminishing. Nobody likes to be bullied, and nobody likes someone who is bullied to "just take it".

There's a reason certain

There's a reason certain people become knows as being ahead of their time... much later.

He would look like a cry baby in the public perception. perception is reality. soon, perception will be ron paul was ahead of his time. for his time to come, he can't be a seen as a cry baby.

reality sucks but it's just perception

Make it so! Mr. Anybody

The rEVOLution Will Not Be Televised....

Isn't that the truth...

Good reporting Matt, as usual

I just called their newsroom

at 414-937-3331 and asked them why they left out Ron Paul, especially when Ron drew a crowd much larger than that overflowing "1000" of the other 3 candidates.

The woman at the other end said she would pass the message on.

And I emailed them too.

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." - Lord Acton

Okay, I'll be devil's advocate

WISN ran this story about the Waukesha Republican meeting because it's easy (and cheap) for their reporter to cover and it has 3 candidates in one place. The anchor is clearly an idiot for saying there are only three candidates in the race, but he is also trying to play up their story as a sort of showdown of all the candidates and saying "all but one" takes away from that.

But the bigger picture is that Ron is running a different kind of campaign. He was not at this Republican forum, in fact he's eschewed all the usual rubber chicken events since Iowa. He has taken to swooping into a state, holding a huge rally, then disappearing entirely. Meanwhile the others are having 3, 4, 5 or more events or appearances every day, many of them in Wisconsin, and are much easier for the local media to access.

So it's a little disingenuous to complain that Ron is being blacked out when he is giving the media very little to work with for their daily news cycle. This is a campaign geared to long-term success and results and the media is not very good at reporting that, certainly not at reporting it often.

they're dropping him out of the race

These are some good points you bring up....but....we have more ground to stand on for the black-out case. This is only one example out of the many of Paul being the 13th floor in a hotel. On super tuesday, MSBC did not even show Paul's face!

Paul refuses to drop out of the race, so they effectively drop him out by pretending he doesn't even exist! I'm telling you guys, the media is foe #1, hands down. Not even Romney, the biggest political hurdle, could inflict this kind of damage on a campaign. We need to go full steam ahead and focus our energies on exposing this razzle-dazzle charade to the public. I'm talking Breitbart, catch 'em in the act, shine light in the dark places, make 'em look like fools kind of stuff. Expose them!


At 2:00.... ughh...

"We have to repeal Obamacare, we have to repeal his anti-religious behaviors, we have to repeal the czars in the White House."

That doesn't even make any sense. How can you repeal an aspect of Obama's behavior? Is it like casting a spell? I guess Newt is just gonna walk up to Obama with an out-stretched finger and shout "RUH-PEEL-ICUS ANTI-REE-LIH-GEEUHS!"

Well, maybe. First you take

Well, maybe. First you take an eye of newt, or so I've heard. LOL

RON PAUL 2012 * Restore America * Bring The Troops Home

Call the newsroom and submit

Call the newsroom and submit the news story as I did, in my above post. Do it rationally and without blowing up. Maybe we'll get somewhere with this method rather then tips.



jaseed's picture

Who's blacking out Ron Paul?

Answer: Anyone endorsing one of the other candidates.
In Wisconsin, this includes senator Ron Johnson and rep Paul Ryan. Both PUBLICLY ENDORSED WILLARD(MITT) ROMNEY;--((
I called both to put bug in ear:

make a statement...

Anyone interested in making a statement to the media that Ron Paul still has a little support? On April 14th, world-wide Ron Paul sign wave day, would be a good time to help kick off the April 15th money bomb by marching on State Capital's across the nation waving those signs! Even if the media doesn't report on it, we will get a glimps of what our true numbers are. It'd be a blast and a good showing would give a much needed boost to the campaign. Just a thought, it's right around the corner and if we were to start promoting it now, the many people planning to be out waving signs already anyway should make it a certain success!

Don't hate the player, hate the game!!!
