Why didn't the media want Ron Paul for Prez, specifically?

What's in it for them? Have proof?

"They're going to try to hang Congressman Paul" -Ex-CIA Chief


This show was abruptly CANCELLED after this, despite being high in the ratings.

"Do you live in a FREE country? Don't be so sure." -Napolitano

Very Simply : They Were Afraid of Losing Their Jobs.

That's it.

The Press corps
The MainStream Pundits afraid of being seen as less and less relevant
The Establishment Players
Entire Departments

Jobs. Insecurity.

That's what they were afraid of.

Media CEO's sit on a ton of subsidized company boards

Media CEO's sit on a ton of subsidized company boards and hold substantial stock of mega corps like banks and defense companies.

Also many companies advertise through commercials on the channels and those companies have a vested interest in keeping the subsidies/regulations flowing..(ie Kraft foods)

just look at warren buffet and berkshire hathaways subsidiary's

or fred hassan who is a former CEO of time warner who still sits on the board.
"Hassan joined Pharmacia & Upjohn in May 1997 as chief executive officer and in February 2001 he was named Chairman of the Board of Pharmacia after the merger with Monsanto Company."

or jeff zucker, recent CEO of CNN and him being vice chairman of GE
(any wonder why the media isn't reporting that GE paid NO TAXES for years)

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

Please do your own research...

Please do your own research, I feel it is important to prove things to yourself. If you decide to take my advice, you will find that our media ownership is consolidated to an extreme extent. An illusion of choice, the illusion of variety. One can also link these large corporations, our information gatekeepers, to their parent companies or subsidiary companies that are invested in the perpetual war machine. All one has to do is follow the money. For example, Why would GE, forty nine percent owner of nbc, report on the war(s) when they have government contracts to cash in on? Or, do you think these monolithic corporations would want to risk millions of dollars in advertising revenue by reporting on the harmful effects of the pharmaceutical industry on their nightly news channel? They wouldn't, and they don't.



Now why would the media be complicit in bashing, marginalizing, mocking and out right ignoring Ron Paul, you ask? Could it be because Paul was calling for an end to the gravy train? He was calling for the end of the federal reserve. He was calling for an end to all the conflicting interests, the special interests. You have heard of that revolving door in DC, right?

For some reason I can't edit

For some reason I can't edit my comment. I just reread it, and I would like to rephrase, Please do your own research, I feel it is important to prove things to yourself....sounds so bossy without the please :)

Correct observation. That is called

corporatism - a symbiotic relationship between big government and monopolies. Since our corporatism is a two-party system (rather than Mussolini one party fascism), big labor is added to the mix for election purposes.

The most important thing to understand, however, is that under corporatism ("mixed economy" or fascism), tyranny of the government always has the upper hand. Thus, affirmative-action recipients (75% of eligible voters: women + gays + some ethnic men) and unionized white men is the Upper hand.

With 55 million Mexicans coming (11m + 11m future wives + 33m future kids; I do not count another 25m close relatives who will join later via family unification), do not expect more freedom.

I agree. However, I feel

I agree. However, I feel we under the illusion of having a two party system. I feel the "two" parties are working as one, most of the draconian legislation being enacted is passed with bipartisan support. Soft fascism?


From their viewpoint he is a sinner.


I my view,

Media, like our politicians, simply reflect the will of the people. Since only 150,000 wrote RP in and 2% supported Libertarian Party, it was not a special secret agenda or electronic voting machines that make media anti-Paul. For the USA government, however, another force (besides lobbying and voting power of the people) is crucial - personal interest of government workers to keep permanent gainful employment via taxpayer money or inflation. Their tool is a passive agression and manipulation via government agencies (like CIA, Pentagon, Education Department, etc.) Those are true anti-Paul.

I think you have it backwards

The media tells the people what their "will" is. Perfect example was on Super Tuesday in 2008. My local newspaper, and every paper that uses Associated Press, had a big 2-page spread with primary candidates and their positions. Guess what, no Ron Paul. They even included a couple that had dropped out (Guiulliani and Thompson I believe). The Associated Press was actively keeping Ron Paul's lone anti-war position secret from the Sheeple.

Because the media is owned by

Because the media is owned by the people that don't want Ron Paul president.

The media is an industry

The media is an industry comprised of multiple companies. What evidence is there that indicates they are are on the same team?

lol. Exactly.

Simple answer for simple people.

It's amazing that so many people still think what they see on corporate media is independent, impartial, hard working state of the art investigative reporting ... on our side!

Telling us "how things really are" - and keeping us informed.

Wow. Hard to believe, I know. But they still assume that, while knowing nothing about who actually owns these networks.

Many in the independent media did want him for Prez

Could be some of the talking heads in corp. tv media did too, but saying so would have cost them their jobs. Corp. media relies on big advertising dollars from other establishment corporations who felt threatened by RP, probably because of his well-known reputation as the only politician who couldn't be bought. They want someone who will "play ball" like a george bush or obama who'd fill the top admin. and treasury positions with Haliburton CEOs, Goldman Sachs people, and their own lobbyists.

We just marched in there,

we can march right back out.

It's about war profits

Cross-reference military contractors and those who own the Networks. There is a reason CBS gave Dr. Paul 89 seconds out of 90 minutes in a foreign policy debate.
