What can we do regarding media bias and the FCC?Submitted by akak on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 17:04
I have been wondering for a long time, does anybody know what we can do, or what can be done, regarding the obvious media bias against Ron Paul with the FCC?
For what it was worth, I sent them the following letter:
Dear FCC Chairman and Commissioners,
I am writing to complain, to the strongest possible degree, of the blatant and egregious bias against, and outright censoring of, Republican candidate Ron Paul by ABC, CBS, and NBC, both on television and radio. Despite his having gained widespread and significant nationwide support, not only financially but in numbers of active supporters and voters, these FCC-licensed media channels have demonstrably marginalized him and continue to silence him and his message, even over other candidates with lesser support, polling numbers and votes. Many, many people have noticed and commented on this to me, and it has become so outrageously obvious that nobody, not you nor anyone else, could deny the reality of the active and ongoing media bias against him.
Given this situation, I would like to ask each of you, just exactly what can I do regarding this patent manipulation of public opinion by these media channels, and more importantly, just what do you plan to do about it? If you tell me nothing on both counts, then I can only conclude that true democracy, at least on a national level, is effectively dead in this country, and our media apparently exist only to preserve the political powers that be and the status-quo over the objections and desires of the American people, and without regard to any semblance of decency, fairness, or justice.
