Daily Paul should award Ben Swann an honorary premium membership to this site! Yes?

Just thinking outloud but I'd love to have Ben stop by occasionally. :)

Personally I would rather just anonymously donate $$ to Ben, I think if you're going want someone to continue bringing forth the truth you have to give him financial support - more than is needed because you know he can do more with it.

I live overseas and it wouldn't break any rules either.

Do You Want to Support Ben Swann and Keep Him on the Air?

A message to everyone who supports Ben Swann (he's a hero of mine): Don't just watch his videos on YouTube. The advertising money will go to some random person.

Instead go straight to the source! The link below links directly to the reality check main website on Fox 19. That way the ad money goes directly to his station, and the owners get a MUCH better idea about just how many people watch him (due to the large number of website hits)!


You can also sign up for the email list so that they send you an email every time there is a new reality check. This way, if the station faces increasing pressure to cancel his show, they will be making enough extra money from ad revenue that they will reconsider.

If you really want to support Ben Swann, please do it this way!

A bit rigid in my view

I guess if you saw Ben out at a club you wouldn't buy him a beer for fear that it might make you look like you were pandering to him.

If you can't reward someone who has put their a$$ on the line in support of some of the most vital issues of our time and that are important to the people here at the DP, then I guess you are far more concerned about what the establishment and the MSM might happen to think than I am.

Of course if Ben is already a member...well...it doesn't really matter then anyway, :)

Another thing: conflict of

Another thing: conflict of interest.

Assuming journalist Ben Swann is who uses the account bearing his name, Ben's relationship with the Daily Paul is fine. Anything more would imbalance the relationship, creating subjectivity and invite scrutiny whose results would be barriers where none was.

Nothing is stopping Ben from paying for a paid account and nothing is stopping him from using a free account.

The only person to consider

The only person to consider giving a free premium account to is Ron Paul because he's the source of our discussion and is why Michael N. created this website. Ron Paul has earned such an account.

To avoid stratifying ourselves, a collectivist activity, continue the DP's membership how it is, up to the individual to make an account.

MN doing to his website what he wants, including making a paid account free to someone, is his decision. But to make it known a DPer has a free pay-for account would be divisive. What is the point of publicizing someone has a free pay-for account?

Besides, there is a DP member whose name is Ben Swann. This person has said he is the Ben Swann. If he is, fine. If he isn't, fine. Ben is able to make an account on his own and can use it when and if he wants as membership stands.

Just say no to collectivizing.

Absolutely not

Doing so would tarnish his credibility as an objective reporter.

Only Michael Nystrom would know which account was his.

I would hope so

It would only help the cause of drawing more people here...
