Anyone who knows me knows that I am a no Ron Paul fan but I have noticed that despite strong showings in a number of caucuses, straw polls and debates, Uncle Paul has never been anointed either front runner or top tier candidate status by the media. So, what's up with that?

It's true, they won't show much about him.. because he stands for what (mostly) everyone ACTUALLY wants vs being told what we want to hear.

My man is ahead these days and I think he may be farther ahead a week from now. Is Paul, or has he ever been a top tier candidate? I guess I missed that part.

Why does the Left continue to push Paul? Because they know he can't win.

The media must be reverse racist or it could be that Ron Paul is too fringe to get much attention as a serious candidate.

Ron Paul always ends up looking like someone's sour faced Uncle. He doesn't play to the camera as well.

I love the fact that Jon Stewart pointed out how much of a joke our media is. I try to get my news from a variety of sources, most of which are foreign media outlets and independent reporters at this point. CNN lies as much as Fox "news", they even reported Paul as getting zero in their poll when their own website showed Paul won! MSNBC and Huffington Joke are not any better. The media is pathetic; plus, the reporters these days are morons. They have no clue about anything but they "comment" on news stories like they know what they're talking about. My MSM days ended when CNN ran a 3 week story about how kids were going to starve because they had a snow day and couldn't get free lunch at school.

Ron Paul is "too fringe" but Michele Bachmann isn't?
