Anyone notice the Comments on the MSM News Sites lately...

Any one else notice how every MSM News Site today that is running a story on Ron Paul has the comments section littered with hate and mis-information? It's almost like they are copy and pasting responses across every major site under different names. I don't want to post links to their sites so as to not support their horrible excuse for reporting. Simply run a Google search on Ron Paul and click on any of the news stories from the past 24 hours. The comments sections are full of people with hate towards Ron Paul. I haven't seen this level of attack on him before on those sites.

I wonder if the establishment has hired or assigned people to go on these sites and spread this misinformation and hate about Ron Paul to make it seem to the casual reader that his support is dwindling...

Has anyone observed the same thing?

I've noticed this going on here at DP big time as of late on a whole range of issues. They are terrified.

That is what they are paid to do!

Common propagandist practice

straight out of their standard toolbox. It can be observed across many topics across the mass manipulation media from global warming and vaccines to politics and warmongering. An article or series of articles will be published with a pre-planned comment campaign to back it; that sounds like what you are observing. One person can take on several persona and argue with him or herself. Auto commenting is often used, which is probably why you are seeing the "copy and paste" effect: it's a commentbot. It is the same in Europe, especially the UK. I have also observed an element of artificial intelligence at a very rudimentary level.

The secret is out. What Dr Paul will be doing in 2021 after his second term as president:

It's been known for years

It's been known for years that various US government and military agencies and the government of Israel pay bloggers to try to influence the US public's opinion. It's old news.

Youtube was the first place that I noticed getting infested with them. They all seem to read from the same script. They tend to show up later than regular folks, and they tend to post post only on weekdays during business hours.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Hypocracy

As long as I can remember, there have been members of a concerted group who act like the Democrats that they say they despise.

To those who remain open-minded, it is obvious that they are prejudiced. They do everything possible to avoid the name. If they find themselves in the position where they must mention the forbidden name, they put forth arguments that are groundless. Their words are basically nothing more than name calling.

I hear hosts like this on Radio and TV all the time. It has got to be coordinated because no one comes up with such copycat dissonance on their own.

For them, it appears to be working.

I hear people, everyday, talk about Ron Paul as being something that does not exist or is bad, or has no chance. An obvious mimic of the contrived conventional wisdom.

This is the entire thrust of what we talk about on here. And why we have such an uphill fight.

What HASN'T Romney paid for?

Romney has paid for everyone and everything he's been doing. He'd already paid 35 people to endorse him here in NH... and so it goes.

He's having them fudge the caucuses, probably for a huge donation to the state party, just like he did here. (Except that we have a vote so RP still came in second)

Mostly I see people trashing him and other RINOs... on the articles I'm reading.

Sad

I think it is very cheap to pay someone to make copy/paste hateful comments. Lets say one person working an 8 hours a day can easily flood the whole discussion. And if you add some foolish trolls doing it for free to that, negative comments will always prevail.

The opposition is going to

The opposition is going to use every way available to them in order to prevent Dr. Paul from being elected POTUS. This is just one way.

I have no doubt that other campaigns have an organized effort to spread misinformation about and post libelous comments regarding Dr. Paul. It's also probably not just other campaigns but also departments of the gov and/or private contractors who believe they would lose out with a Constitution oath abiding president. In the last MSM online article I read there were 5-6 one liner comments about Dr. Paul in just the first page stating that he has zero delegates.

All of this is why we all need to be commenting positively in support of Dr. Paul whenever we read articles posted anywhere online where comments are allowed. I make it a point to comment in favor of Dr. Paul as often as possible and in addition I also post replies to correct others who have made untrue statements.

THEY come out against Dr. Paul in public forums stating LIES, then WE need to come out even stronger in those forums with the TRUTH. If we do this we win this battle, because the truth is self evident and all those reading article/video comments will see the truth for what it is and possibly 'wake up' in the process.

...

Hate to tell you this...

but they have been doing it for months. The difference now is that there are fewer Ron Paul positive responses since everyone is getting sick and tired of fighting the Trolls.

I remember reading about this...

Here:
Title: Revealed: US spy operation that manipulates social media

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/mar/17/us-spy-oper...

It says in the article above that it would be it would be unlawful to "address US audiences" with such technology.

So you can sleep soundly in your bed tonight because as we all know, the PTB wouldn't dream of doing anything illegal...

Would they?

I think you may be right. I

I think you may be right. I remember reading on Lew Rockwell's site onetime a note from a soldier in Iraq saying how lewrockwell.com was censored over there and after he posted it a bunch of solders emailed him confirming that, so yea, the US government is definitely aware of the dangers of libertarian thought infecting Americans with unclean desires about their freedom.

I think it would best to fight back

I heard a statistic recently that more people are getting their news/information from internet sources. The internet is where Paul is supposed to have at least a chance of getting mentioned. So it would be best to at least add to the comments section to increase the positive feedback. If flooded with responses, I know websites will freeze the comments or take the link to an article away.

You have to remember that as

You have to remember that as time goes by, less and less Paul supporters watch the MSM, or visit their websites. The majority of those that still get their information from these sources are the ones that are going to be voting for Obama, Romney, and the like.

I say feed the trolls and inform the uninformed:

They single-handedly point out how ignorant and misinformed they are. As thread after thread points out by them not replying to certain posts, when people entertain a troll with FACTS on the ISSUES, they seem to be left without anything INTELLIGENT to say in response and HAVE to resort to name-calling as their only resort or changing the topic. What this means is that they just LOST the battle, and they’re losing the war. The war on several undecided or misinformed people that read these comments. So thanks to the bots, trolls, and idiots who don’t know any better, and a bigger thanks to those that don’t stoop to their level and actually EDUCATE and spread the facts. People who read the comments are cleared up on the issues, start learning the facts instead of the misconceptions, and start researching on their own. So keem’em coming trolls!

Good point, if/when you reply

Good point, if/when you reply to comments like that you are unlikely to change that person's mind, but it may still benefit onlookers who are skimming and lurking, and who have a more open mind. I was actually converted that way...I liked Ron Paul and agreed with his message, but had the whole defeatist attitude that there was nothing I could do....but I was influenced by the many positive an intelligent Ron Paul supporters I saw commenting all over the place.

Let's attack Romney in the same way.....

Do the same thing back.

we dont have to

There is never any rebuttal... Or even initial buttal for that matter... Everybody already hates romney... Never any reason to resort to the same tricks as the ptb...

Yeah, i saw that in the huffington post. a bunch of liberals saying ron paul is just like all the other republicans. obviously that isnt true. its like someone wants to stop all the obama converts coming over to paul

This is definitely true, and

This is definitely true, and I've noticed it just a few days ago myself. It was like the entire article had been taken over.

We could prove it was happening by showing a statistically significant trend difference in "sentiment" from normal (i.e. compare to the past 5 years). I know someone who has a sentiment analysis project who I might ask.

In a spiritual war, dark

In a spiritual war, dark forces use hate and lies to fight love and truth. When the enemy detects losing some power, the hate becomes darker and the lies become sinister. Do not cower, do not back down, do not be corrupted. Truth wins in the end. It has to or the evil forces would have succeeded in destroying good. I love the star wars symbolism. Which side is more powerful? Although it seems the dark side, truly the light side has the ultimate power. Why? Because darkness steals from the light. Lies do not exist apart from truth and hate does not exist apart from love. "Your focus determines your reality" or maybe, "your actions follow your beliefs". Do not lose hope, rather, bear down, stand tall, feel the strength growing inside you as you see the weakness and desperation of the enemy. What do they have to gain from slander, gossip, hate, bitterness? Their hearts are hard. They are afraid of the light, afraid that they will be exposed for who they are deep in their hearts and souls. Pray for them. "Love your enemies and pray for them. Do good to those who hurt you." Do not fight evil with evil. By fighting evil with good in so doing you will heap burning coals on their heads.

I Posted Something Similar Today

About how some websites have divided the comments into "All Comments" and "Top Comments" and issued disclaimers that they reserve the right to take down any comment at their discretion. They absolutely have the right to take down anything they want on their website, but it is very misleading when they censor which comments you can see and which you can't.

On a side note, I have also noticed the HUGE amount of anti-Paul comments that came seemingly out of nowhere over the last month. It used to be that every article about Dr. Paul--good, bad, or neutral--was followed with hundreds or thousands of positive comments about him in the comment section. There were hardly ever any negative ones. Lately the tables have turned. And the negative ones don't seem real. They don't look like anything the average person would say. They look like someone was paid to just go and write a ton of negative things about him. I would not be surprised one bit, especially after Obama tried to get a few hundred thousand volunteers to do just this, if this was the case.

I also haven't seen Paul at the top of Google searches lately, but Mitt Romney is at the very top all the time.
