Why Does Mainstream Media Disrespect Ron Paul? | Greg Hunter

Watching the Sunday talk shows and looking at the reporting from this weekend’s Republican straw poll, you would not think that Congressman Ron Paul even participated in the event.... Paul came in a very close second to Representative Michele Bachmann in a field of Presidential Candidates. Bachmann received 4,823 votes; Paul received 4,671 votes, which represents a margin of just 152 votes.... To me, it appears to be a statistical dead heat, especially when you consider the next closest competitor, Governor Tim Pawlenty, received only 2,293 votes. Pawlenty’s distant third place finish effectively blew him out of the race...

Fox doesn't mention Ron Paul because he is a threat to the traditional way of operating within the GOP, and virtually all other mainstream news has a liberal bias, and he isn't talked about on liberal-biased newscasts because he has very good points to which liberal candidates do not have good responses.

Even the extreme right FOX News always skews Ron Paul's status in the polls... He's in a dead heat with Bachmann...

MSM has two options with republicans, ignored hen or try to destroy them. I would think being ignored would be a better choice

the answer is: fear.

When we create new money in this country, it goes straight into the hands of bankers and corporations. Ron Paul knows this, it is basically what he preaches with his ideas on monetarism and the Fed. He may not frame his arguments as "anti-corporate establishment," that's what they actually are.

Fox is corporate owned, and so are the other networks. They want a corporate candidate, like Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama, who will keep the current monetary system.

I already saw a headline saying "And then there were three", and they meant Bachmann, Perry and Romney.

The Sunday morning talk shows interviewed the winner, not the losers. I don't care how close the straw poll was, Paul didn't win so he didn't get the coveted Sunday morning interviews. Prior arrangements are made with all the candidates to go on the shows, should they win, long before they even know who wins, and how close the voting may be or not be. It's not a "slight" or political that Paul didn't get an interview.

Yes, the GOP is very afraid of him, because if he won, he would shatter their GOP policy of corporate socialism.
