The truth is that Dr. Paulís true image, the one that we his supporters see, isn't what others see during a biased debate session or a slanderous ten second sound bite on FOX. He, unlike his slimy rivals, is not a shameless self promoter and he needs a little more time to explain complex issues (especially because many times people are hearing the truth about them for the first time).

If we recognize the blatant censorship from both sides of the corporate media as a major obstacle in Dr. Paul's campaign we must also recognize their tactics.

First let's realize that the majority of the people who are reached by the main stream media are for the most part "media illiterate" and the media uses this to their advantage when dealing with Dr. Paul. The fact that they are constantly bombarded with opinions and propaganda disguised as news is no accident. It keeps people too busy to question the source of the message or the motives and interests of the corporations who broadcast that message. This repetition lowers the attention span of American viewers which allows the media to control the flow of information (short and tidy). They use repetition to continuously echo their views or the views of the parent company. When a movement like Dr. Ron Paul's campaign for Liberty contradicts their view, they ignore it, or marginalize it at best no matter how newsworthy it truly is to the recipient. Another common tactic is to constantly generate negative headlines in an seemingly uncoordinated but highly deliberate way to give the viewer a negative perception of Paul without even having to read an article or view a story. They are in complete control of how the average recipient learns about Dr. Paul altering their perception of him sometimes permanently.

Lets face it, Ron Paul's movement DOMINATES unbiased media outlets such as twitter and YouTube because the people have the time to hear the wisdom and truth in his message and then share their own opinion. There, Dr. Paul is not editorialized by the main stream, nor are we. There it is real democracy, people get to say and vote for what they like, yet still he is the undisputed KING of this realm. This is why Ron Paul's campaign must learn to use his time in the mainstream media to guide people (especially older people who still get much of their news from television and newspapers) to the internet while he can. If he can steer curious people to one of these unconstrained forums of information by using his face time on TV the results would be huge. Think of the millions of people that would go to the internet if Dr. Paul said something like " there's is a video of me on Youtube holding the first audits of the FED", or "if you donít believe me there a video of me on YouTube saying that 20 years ago", during each of these nationally televised debates! Another crucial thing about Youtube is the fact that clever Paul SUPPORTERS WRITE THE HEADLINES or titles to the videos. He and his supporters are well seasoned (much, much more than his rivals) in this arena and already have an established viewership in the millions as we all know. Get the people there and let the supporters take the wheel. The more people who learn about Dr. Paul in this environment the better and it is a mistake not to promote it. Even better its free. The other guys canít duplicate it either. They donít hold a candle to the SUPPORT or CONTENT Dr. Paul has there. This is the easiest and BEST place to battle the mediaís negative headline machine. By takeing this advantage this he is combating in the most direct way the mediaís control of his perceived image. If he did this forcefully it could make headlines in the especially if he is the first to start such a trend.

Through the internet we can share our opinions of Dr. Paul on our terms and it works. A video on the web has infinite time.

I think is true and what Chris Manion writes about Obama's SOTU address relates.

Dumbed Down, Going Down
Posted by Christopher Manion on January 25, 2012 10:50 AM

So the language of Obama's State of the Union registers at an 8th grade reading level. Are we surprised?

Not after reading the piece by Walter Williams posted on LRC this morning. The people Obama is trying to reach are simply uneducated — not dumb, but deliberately deprived by the educrats of the capacity to reason and reach rational conclusions, to paraphrase Hannah Arendt. (Be sure to read the article Williams refers too, as well. Brace yourself.)

Obama has deliberately dumbed down all three of his SOTU addresses. His "average grade-level score of 8.4 is more than two grades lower than the 10.7 grade average for the other 67 addresses written by his 12 predecessors," according to a careful analysis of the texts. Wonder why?

Obamanologists at Politico gild the lily: "Obama's use of simple language is in part a reflection of his audience: the American voter in an election year."

Translated through the LRC Truthacator, we add the missing adjective: the Holy O's audience is the :uneducated" voter (thanks to his allies in the government school unions), and his goal is making them resentful and envious while leaving them uneducated. Think Orwell's proles, and Huxley's Deltas.

Get in line for your Soma.
