    Oh, go please yourself, if anyone or anything can please you. Nobody's memory is more convenient than yours. You sat here through two Ron Paul primaries, yet you forgot that whom the media does not approve of, the media does not mention. Ron Paul didn't even get his name in the news when he came in second in a primary, even though the candidates who came in first, third and fourth did get named. That is how the media treats candidates it is told to disapprove of. That is how the media torpedoes candidates. It does not take a poll of Republican primary voters, find out they hate and mistrust the media, then advertise nonstop 24/7 that they do not approve of that Republican primary candidate. They do not mention him at all. He gets no free advertising. None. And Trump? Trump got nonstop advertising. Nonstop. He got 100% of the publicity. How can I say 100% when other candidates did appear? I documented this stuff. I watched the Sunday Morning Broadcast Blather every week for months. You can see the results here: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?463629-Sunday-Morning-Sit-Down-Stand-Up-Comedy Examine it closely, and you can see that Trump was the only Republican blathered about every Sunday, week in and week out, like clockwork. Of course, that doesn't mean he got 100% of the coverage. He might have gotten coverage on every show, while the sixteen other candidates may have only been seen and mentioned one week in sixteen. But, of course, that isn't 100% coverage for Trump. But those sixteen other candidates all got asked questions about Trump during their infrequent interviews. Every one of them, every time. Seventeen candidates was unprecedented. One of seventeen candidates getting coverage on every show was unprecedented. But all candidates getting asked to comment on one particular candidate in every single interview was just infamous. It was a completely different world than the one we grew up in. Nothing of the sort had ever happened before. And if the candidate getting interviewed said, I don't want to talk about him, I have my own ideas, he or she was badgered until he or she did consent to talk about that other candidate. Sometimes the whole interview consisted of him or her getting badgered into talking about Trump. And, no, I'm not going to listen to the standard line about how the media played Trump up for ratings. Maybe pointing a camera at Trump was good for ratings, maybe it wasn't. But pointing a camera at someone else and asking them about Trump is not something that they did for ratings. Period.
