Look at this. You know, the absurdity of it is sickening. The big political news is "Candidates struggling to cope with Huckabee". God, I really hate these people. And on Morning Joe the big news was Leiberman endorsing McCain. I hate the media. I just hate them.

Patriots down Jets, go 14-0. In other news, my cat's breath smells like cat food! Plus it's snowing, and ZOMG did you see what Joe said about McCain, even though Joe is an (I[D])?!

They all know about it, but they don't want anyone else to. You know they probably had a conference call last week, where the heads of the 5 familes (the 5 media conglomerates who own most of the media outlets in America) said, "We don't care how much money he raises, we are NOT going to talk about it." Ron Paul threatens EVERYTHING these crooks hold dear. Don't expect them to celebrate the victories of their enemies.

+1

If Ron Paul gets in office, and gets rid of the FCC, then these conglomerates will disappear pretty quickly.

Ok. Enemy has shown his face.

There is no question about who is the enemy, greatest challenge in the way to presidency.

Media.

Attack towards the enemy, its the best defence, every way you can.

There should open a large discuss how to deal with "mainstream" media and make moves against it. Shame on msnbc!

They had to punt back to the ignore stage. I'm loving the ammunition we have now.

Me: Did you hear about the $6M Ron Paul raised on the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party?

Stranger: No... When was that?

Me: On the 16th, funny the media never really reported that huh? I wonder what else they don't report?...

They are screwed no matter what they do.

Going to be tough to ignore a $10 million national advertising campaign (assuming the rumors are true).

There's a press conference coming up; I assume this is why we're not hearing anything yet, because they want all the facts before publishing.

This also segues nicely into news of the Iowa TV Special and the $10M advertising blitz.

They probably didn't realize last time that the money bomb + the coverage of it could help bump Paul in the polls from 2% to 8%. They're not interested in a repeat.

I am well aware of the bias of MSM, but I must confess that it never ceases to amaze me when it's this blatant (Ron Paul has raised more than 4x Huckabee in Q4!):

Or here on Ron Paul's page on their site. Notice the stories that place at the top, as if they are the most significant pieces of news:

Thank you for that. I was getting very angry.

But what you said makes sense, and I hope it's true. Perhaps the Old Media isn't evil, just stupid. They don't get their facts straight, and they barely know that the internet exists.

I sure hope you're right... but thanks to your statement I'll be able to calm down until tomorrow. :)

Would you believe that "they" are scared?

Cause that what you did yesterday. You scared the bejesus out of them.

The only thing they fear are the masses getting organized, the masses getting behind a cause, people actually willing to sacrifice.

And thats exactly what they saw yesterday. That 6 million was heard load and clear! You've may have gotten their attention earlier, be sure you got their total undivided attention yesterday.

So why are they silent? Today they are silent because thatís the only response they've got left. Its not their strength their showing, its their weakness!

Let me say it load and clear one more time so everyone get's it

YOU ARE DOING IT!

F** the old media. They think we are their enemy and they are right. They are our enemy. Having pushed a toxic agenda trough the airwaves for years and years. They are absolutely right. They are our enemy. Right from the moment they made themselves an enemy of the people they were. And at that moment they sealed their fate.

The time has come.

Onward!

How odd. Not only is the Tea Party not main page news ...it's not even anywhere in their website. Apparently, CNN doesn't think it worthy of a front-page mention either even though they posted the story four hours ago. Oh, well. I guess we'll have to be satisfied with Wolf Blitzer exclaiming "Amazing ...amazing" all over again. :rolleyes:

I am really hoping the main stream media treats Ron Paul more fairly. I am sure that you, along with me, hope today will be different. But, it never is. It never is and it never will be unless we pull off an Iowa surpise or a New Hampshire surprise. But, you know deep inside, they will do everything in their power to not let a surprise happen. Right ?

We are kidding ourselves people. Nothing will happen unless we overcome the bias in a big way. They are closing the door and throwing away the key and you know it. This is how the civil rights movement was created. Unfair treatment and deprivation of Liberty to American citizens. I am arguing that we need another civil rights movement again.

Unless we march in defiance of media bias in large scale numbers to a major network office like CNN in Atlanta or to Fox News, or NBC in New York, the shredding of our insistence to have an unbiased media report fairly will continue.

All it takes is 5-10,000 people marching on 1 day to have a direct impact. Time is running short. We need to show timid Americans waiting on the sidelines that it is ok to challenge the media and the establishment. All I am advocating is a march. Media outlets will have to report on it. No way to get around it. Americans will see us and join the cause immediately.

They have 2-3 weeks to make Ron Paul go away forever. We have 2-3 weeks to organize something meaniful and not let it happen.

Sorry for the dramatics, but I am fed up with it. And I really feel a large demosntration will have an impact immediately.

More disgusting media antics. This is yet another strain of the Huck-a-Bull****. Yet another situation in which they blare Mike Huckabee whenever Ron Paul does something HUGE! Disgusting...REALLY disgusting

Cancel your television cable / satellite / TiVo subscription, sell your TV set (or plug your computer into it), and use high-speed Internet for all your news and entertainment needs! Pirate shamelessly, and donate the money you save to Ron Paul!

I wouldn't explicitly endorse illegal activities, online or elsewhere. You might get some unwelcome houseguests or get the forum in trouble.

Just some links if anyone isn't aware of this stuff yet:

Most broadcast and print media are part of a small number of corporations:
http://www.oilempire.us/graphics/media-moguls-1200X849.jpg
http://libreria.sourceforge.net/library/Free_Culture/images/media-concentration-cl.png

All or almost all of the media corporations are corporate members of the Council on Foreign Relations:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_on_Foreign_Relations

The CFR is an invite only club:
http://www.cfr.org/about/membership/

All "top tier" candidates in this election are members of the CFR and have written articles in the CFR's magazine Foreign Affairs:
http://www.foreignaffairs.org/special/campaign2008

Foreign Affairs is very "influential," a kind of "playbook":
http://www.eric.ed.gov/ERICWebPortal/custom/portlets/recordDetails/detailmini.jsp?_nfpb=true&_&ERICExtSearch_SearchValue_0=ED202787&ERICExtSearch_SearchType_0=eric_accno&accno=ED202787

Barry Goldwater writes about the CFR and media influence on elections:
http://www.mega.nu/ampp/cfr.html

Here is some background on media corporation relationships to the Council on Foreign Relations:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=JPlvdSQ6cAM

Ron Paul is not a member of the CFR:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=NV_AML16tC8

Almost all presidents and vice presidents for the past 50 years have been CFR members.

VP Cheney:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbnpN07J_zg

Bill Clinton and his mentor Carroll Quigley:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRkCvubUGCM

Hillary Clinton:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irGLv6xLFxU

Al Gore, supporting the Iraq war in 2002:
http://www.cfr.org/publication.html?id=4343

So it wouldn't have mattered who won the 2000 election, the Iraq war was planned long before:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zteunEcP5-U

They're not so sure about Iran though:
http://zmagsite.zmag.org/JulAug2007/shoup_print.html

CNN is owned by corporate CFR member AOL Time Warner:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNN

Larry King informs Bill Clinton that Ted Turner, founder of CNN, would serve him:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=h89KIsZaRV8

Basically the media's job is to try to make sure that only CFR memebers or CFR controlled candidates get elected by manipulating the public's opinion of the candidates. The Foreign Affairs journal is published as a "playbook" to inform the people in charge of the media about who the "viable" CFR candidates are, so they can push them on the people. It's interesting that the CFR maintains control only (or mainly, in the case of rigged eletions) through the people's general consent, which is based on their ignorance of what is really going on and their willingness to be influenced by the media.

The solution to stop the CFR's control? Maybe to take back to "power centers of society" like G. Edward Griffin suggests:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6015291679758430958

Sorry about kind of jumping around to different subjects but it's all related and hard to put in a single understandable order. Hopefully once the puzzle pieces are known they kind of fit together. :p
