Thread: Whistleblower bounty for proof of MSM blackout waged on Dr Paul

  1. #1

    Whistleblower bounty for proof of MSM blackout waged on Dr Paul

    I have a project underway to get sufficient EVIDENCE to show that the MSM is shutting Dr Paul out. That is based on raw data provided by a news monitoring service. It's still playing out, but here's where it's at:
    http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=100886

    Now, I want to attack the problem from another angle, as well. Now, I want to get internal PROOF that the MSM has actually made DECISIONS to shut the campaign, and are engaged in a conspiracy(!) to implement those decisions. I'm looking for proof, in the form of memos passed down from on-high, emailed directions, etc.

    This is not just one or two people up top that are doing this. EVERYBODY below them must know that the fix is in. So, I'm proposing a monetary bounty, to draw the underlings out. Many of them may still harbor the traces of a heart, with remnants of decency, and belief in good 'ol "fair go". A number of them may just care for their country. And maybe there's even a few closet Ron Paul supporters in there.

    Whatever, having a bit of money "grease the wheels" of the whistleblower scheme cannot but be a good thing in terms of making it happen, when it otherwis wouldn't, for fear of causing a stink for no potential reward.

    So, I put it out to the grassroots. How much should we be offering? How can this work logistically? We can and sholud guarantee anonymity if they so seek it, but to be awarded dollars, the proof that they provide must be SOLID without their name being attached to it.

    Should we shoot for $10,000 for hard evidence? $25,000? $50,000?

    How about we just keep kicking funds into it, and it keeps rising...$100,000...$200,000...until someone claims it. But then their proof must be judged as being worthy, somehow. It may only be worth part of it, as it may be weak, and not cause the intended exposure. How can we judge the results of worthy proof? Of course payouts must only be done some time down the track, after the proof has been released, and found to hold water. Some may be fakes which we shall have to be on the alert for. Confirmation of seriousness can be assured by any emails be traceable via headers back to their work address. And we can ring them AT WORK, to ensure that they are serious. Then we keep their identity anonymous, and move forward with exposing the coverup.

    What say ye?

    sounds feasible, I suppose. The proof is judged good if it results in a penalty, somehow.

    Ron Paul has stated that what the mainstream media was doing was not illegal. Unfortunately Dr. Paul is too much of a gentleman to call them a bunch of unethical douchebags. Thank god I'm not a gentleman though. My hope is that the MSM's punishment in hell is that they have to go to journalism school for eternity.

    That's only anecdotal. We need the HARD evidence (Project 1), and then the PROOF (Project 2), in a 1-2 combination punch.

    I don't expect that we are going to have someone hand us a memo with David Rockefellers signature on it! I'd be happy with some mid-level scalp. A senior producer, or editor, or someone like that, issuing a memo to on-air talent, or journalists, etc.

    That's realistic, and doable, and would be a good victory. Then we need similar from ALL other networks.

    I agree. The fact that Ron Paul has been so consistently blacked out means there is probably a paper trail.

    If we could get hold of the paper trail, it would make at least a very good documentary on the state of the current mainstream media... and provide a good case for its replacement.

    Why not make the MSM actually SCARED of the grassroots?

    We raised the funds for a recount in New Hampshire - we could do this.

    That's exactly right. Apart from exposing HISTORIC behavior, it is my intent that a standing pool of money be hanging over their heads, letting them know that if they DO act nefariously, and against the public interest, then can they REALLY trust the underlings to carry it out without exposing them, to get the bounty? Once you erode that trust-factor, it makes for a very lonely world for them, and it slows them down, as they have to do everything themselves, or they actually self-limit their behavior. In any case, it's all good.

    It's a good idea, but the approach should be examined. I believe G. Edward Griffin is right when he says you can only fight power with power. In this case, I say the support of independent news networks is a better approach.

    Does anyone really thing 60 minutes will do a piece on how currupt they are?? To get the word out you need MSM, which won't run with this type of story.

    http://www.therealnews.com has made a good start.

    I agree. I've been following therealnews since it was INN, a couple of years ago. They HAVE made a good start. Very small audience though. But there are other such avenues I had in mind. Greg Palast is an American investigative journalist whom gave up trying to get covered in the US, so he went to England, and gets good coverage via BBC and ITV. The independent journos can verify the data, and then we can give them a boost, by plugging it to the blogosphere, and doing strategic paid ads. Or by including it as inserts in our mailings and handouts.

    Plus, small, local stations seem to be still giving Dr Paul a fair run. That's probably a clue that the main honchos in the networks don't fully control their affiliates...yet.

    you dont think the mass media could spin something like that away regardless of what 'evidence' you get? call me crazy but im not crazy about this plan of yours

    I agree that even if this did get aired somehow, it would quickly be forgotten.

    I believe the way to beat the MSM is to make them irrelevant. You make them irrelevant by increasing the popularity of the online media and blogs. Online video streaming is getting better daily and cheaper, so soon, websites can be established as competition to cable news, broadcasting 24/7, streaming online with their own reporters, stories, and hopefully a truely more fair and balanced approach. But even if online media is biased, hopefully there will be great competition and people will pick and choose who to watch.

    I understand it won't happen overnight, but look far the internet took Ron Paul in these short months.

    They've bent us forwards over the table. You can go to your 'quiet place', and take it, if you like. I intend to fight all the way.

    You are totally discounting the Luck factor. Maybe one of Rupert Murdoch's juniors is a closet Ron Paul supporter, and doesn't like what is happening to his country. And what if that person were to cop a voicemail from RM saying "I thought I told you not to give that f$&^**er Ron Paul any coverage, and you go and put him on the Situation Room?! "

    You never know what's at play behind the scenes. A pool of money will draw them out at *some* stage. At the very least, with it hanging over their heads, it will have to make the uncomfortable.

    That will be a great resource, when completed! I had been thinking of something similar for a while. I was going to do a "thatwhichmakesusstronger.com" or something like that, listing all the times we've been shafted, and the extraordinary amount of times we have had "bad luck", due to "technicalities", like when Facebook search doesn't work for searches of "ron paul", but works fine for other candidates. I had been thinking a wiki, though.

    The next President that is not Dr Paul will crack down on the internet within the next term for two reasons:
    (1) who's supporting them during this campaign? Old media and old media's owners. ie the military industrial complex. They are not going to risk that future support, and
    (2) the party structures (both GOP and Dems) cannot allow someone such as Dr Paul to arise in the future. They need to make it more difficult for such a person to gain any momentum in this medium. It's only going to get worse for them, with declining offline circulations, so the pressuer will come sooner, rather than later.

    What you are suggesting will take a decade, at least. We can't afford to wait that long.

    Every dog has it's day... their deeds will either be rewarded or it will be thier demise. Karma has a wonderful way of showing up later on down the road... right on time.

    About a dozen of us staffed 2 tables (not one... two...!!!) at a regional hobbiest event here in town and handed out a lot of Ron Paul material. There were no other candidates or signs anywhere... and I made it a point to let the attendies know that there was a reason we were there in person. (as in the media does not represent we the people... sad but true). Here's some powerful video of the event...

    Yeah, I had thought about a wiki, but I wanted something a bit more powerful in terms of raw data that could eventually be queried, sorted, searched and displayed in a number of different ways. It's all going into a SQL database at the moment.

    If you want to work together to at least help document everything that would be great. I'd like to expose the database with web services eventually, so you could potentially pull from it.

    It'll be an all-encompassing timeline, but I'm focusing on two things that need to be documented for the American people:

    Blackout/Negative/False News:
    All of the items with a black background are instances of the establishment (of any kind) keeping Ron out of the discussion. The red-background items are negative press.

    Grassroots:
    All of the green text is grassroots related. Everything that has been done by the grassroots movement needs to be documented! I believe that this is the most historic presidential race in our history and this fact is being completely ignored.

    Historic:
    The entire story is historic, but there are events that are historic in their own right (fundraising for example). These are highlighted with a red border.

    Please! If anyone is a junkie, consider submitting any events/blackouts/grassroots stuff that's not already shown.

    It will take another generation before this could happen. There are still a bunch of middle-aged & elderly people that are not web savvy. I think that in order to get through to the MSM is to do things that would force them to notice. For example, a flash mob of ten thousand Ron Paul Supporters showing up at 30 Rock in New York chanting "RON PAUL IS NEWSWORTHY" would be just that.

    Another example would be the Superbowl. Now I know that commercials would be impossible but fans wearing Ron Paul Revolution shirts is OK. Preferably in highly-viewed spots like the first couple rows by the endzones.

    Expose Associated Press (AP) too. Yahoo use AP on their front page a lot and Google usually use AP for their news site.

  26. #23
    That's a good activity, but please wait till after Super Tuesday.

    BTW, I was watching NBC tonight and they were only showing McCain, Romney and Giuliani. No mention of Huckabee (in the graphics).

    Is there a conspiracy against Huck? I don't think so. Maybe it's just that the pie chart slices have to have a certain character size to be visible from a distance (actually, visible by the over 60 crowd !)

    Honestly this is a waste of time, the reason they don't broadcast him is because their polls show him as low. If we were able to get the people they call to like Ron Paul then we would have some more air time. At least thats what they'll tell you even after you show them all this evidence.

    But you can't get the people they call to like Ron Paul without broadcasting him! (despite our grassroots, which cannot get to everyone in the country)

    And therefore they don't learn about him.

    And therefore he doesn't get higher polling.

    Run an anti-media ad (all print no sound), as follows:

    In the week before the Florida primary, Jan. 21-28, the media blacked out coverage of Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul. Data shows that:

    John McCain received EIGHTY FIVE TIMES more media coverage,
    Rudy Giuliani received SIXTY NINE TIMES more media coverage.
    Mitt Romney received FIFTY NINE TIMES more media coverage.
    Mike Huckabee received THIRTY TWO TIMES more media coverage.
    Fred Thompson received TWENTY FIVE TIMES more media coverage

    Please express your displeasure at this unfair media blackout of Ron Paul by boycotting the following news networks and programs:

    Fox News
    MSNBC
    NBC Evening News
    CBS Evening News
    ABC Evening News

    Thank you

  33. #29
    Well how does proving the obvious help your case? They claim he isn't mainstream, which is true, they claim he doesn't appeal to the base which is true (neo-conservatives), they claim he's crazy which he seems to be because of all of his unexplained soundbites (abolish CIA, Abolish DOE, end drug war, etc.) These policies make sense but they must be explained.

    Please send me a check for $10,000 I could really use it especially since I haven't been earning much income the last month or so because of the campaign.
