Why Is Rand Getting The Treatment He's Getting?Submitted by FenderStrat on Mon, 03/25/2013 - 23:33
Just based on some informal observations, I feel like the media is generally treating Rand "well." Well as in, described in a positive light. Far more positive than his father.
But I also feel like the media is being very careful with Rand as well. They're trying to stay on top of his policies, hoping, it seems, to get him to say something that they can pin him hard with.
They haven't been quick to make ballsy predictions...He hasn't been placed on the cover of any magazines with captions like "The Republican Savior." (Another reason Rand's timing was delicious)
A lot of the media hacks are elevating their game a bit when they talk about Rand. Sort of like how they acted when they talked TO Ron, not necessarily about him. They aren't resorting to some of the easy name calling and labeling when it comes to Rand. They know he can beat that.
So what's the deal? Does Rand have them by the balls? Are they covering their asses because they know they have to? Are they just biding their time, waiting to build a case so they can unload when the time is right? Or are they ignorant of who Rand is and his power? Maybe Rand is just part of their game?
