The Media Blackout Against Ron Paul
Posted by Lew Rockwell at January 29, 2008 09:23 AM
A famous journalist (and wonderful writer) for a famous print publication calls a friend to say that "You would not believe the pressure all across the media not to write about Ron Paul, unless it is something quirky. I am ashamed to say my own editor is part of the blackout."

OK, I get Murdock and the CEO's decision to sensor and delete RP, but what of the 100,000+ employee's of all the MSM's. How can they live with themselves. They are going down in history as Benedict Arnold's. Do they not care of our country, of their children. Have they no pride?

I just don't get it. If they stood up together (not to support RP, it's beyond that) If they would just stand up and say "NO!" and strike, what choice would Murdock and others have? They can't have all their employees walk out.

I just don't get it.

I honestly would love to see a huge Ron Paul rally at ABC HQ

One thing is for sure ....they all eat their young.

If a few thousand people stood outside ABC news and protested censorship of Ron Paul ....the other networks would all come out and cover the story.

They always report the misdeeds of other networks, so that they then can TOUT their own purity in journalistic reporting.

Jesus is the saviour of the WHOLE WORLD, "As in Adam all die, so too in Christ ALL shall be made alive." (ICor.15:22) All means all. The pagan 'hell' of literal fire & eternal torment is a lie and is SPIRITUAL TERRORISM. http://www.hopebeyondhell.net

I thought that too.

would it work? It would be worth a try.

That's very depressing

Ecuador is looking better all the time.

Wow!

This is America?

Don't back down. Bravo to all of you patriots.

Amazon.com has a page listing

most of the candidates' books. Ron Paul was not on the list as of yesterday. Huckabee had several on there.

I didn't see a way to contact them, but I'm sure there is.

I totally agree

Keep a list of the media organizations and individuals who slander Dr. Paul or refuse to mention him altogether. They do no stand for the best interest of Americans -- this is a fact. Never forget who these people are ... ever.

"I killed the banks"

another writing...

I saw another writing that shed light on why 'journalists' go along with censorship and bias of elites.

It is because the reporters/journalist themselves rely on power elites in government to give them stories...you know...think of having to interview the DOJ head about something..when you've written him up the week before.

Do you think the DOJ person would even grant an interview? They don't want to alienate the source.

This too, explains why reporters give a pass and do not ask tough questions to government officials and politicians.

It is about money...employee/journalist go along...because they want to keep getting their paycheck and can't get a paycheck with a source/official to supply information for the story.

absolutely, that's fundamental to their careers

They do ask tough questions sometimes, but only up to a point and only against people they are trying to trash anyway.

Sure, you can question a politician on whether he or she is for this war or that tax bill. You cannot ask them how they plan to dismantle the military-industrial complex, or lobbyist junkets, or plans for the NAU...only within the parameters of "acceptable discourse".

All it takes is just one with some courage

to out the entire sordid affair. Of course, he or she would lose employment, so it won't happen. After the campaign is over, I believe this would make for one great investigative journalism book.

Ron Paul is simply too dangerous and cannot be allowed to attain presidential power. It truly does prove there is no difference between the two main parties...although to watch those millions of young people swoon over that idiot Obama. What a dumbed down society.

Dan Rather

Didn't Dan Rather get fired for asking pertainent questions? What did they do to him? Fired him and blacked out his message. Larry King interviewed him and I think got in trouble for it.

It would take more than one journalist. It would have to be a entire block that stood up and got noticed. Or write articles backing each other, to be published on the same day, nationwide. Or something of that nature.

Or hit the internet with the truth all together on the same day. If the powers to be got wind of it, who knows what would happen? A bunch of dead journalists?

Dan Rather got fired for

Dan Rather got fired for reporting on what he should have easily known were forged documents and then when a blogger, of all people, caught the fact that they were forged, continued to report on the story for almost a month. It was politically motivated and everyone knew it.

hmmm

they report lies all the time and get away with it, and everyone believes them too.
The anchors report what is given them.
I think Dan Rather was set up to take the fall for that one.

Mark Larsen today STOOD UP and told it like it is!

I was so proud of him. I believe there will be others too.
