Availability to the media =/= Media exposure

If a program talks about candidates for 2 hours, and the only talk of one of the candidates was a 6 minute interview, but the remaining time talks about the other candidates in full, then yes, he gets the least exposure.

also, if the other candidates get quality air time with many, lengthy opportunities to explain themselves, it is different than when paul is mentioned for thirty seconds, taken out of context in every way possible, and prematurely dismissed as unelectable simply because it fits with establishment bias, indoctrination, and the probable censor of the corporate boss.

Well when I first posted it he was. Now he's in third place for being the most influential in the world -- far ahead of Obama or any of the other GOP candidates.
