This is getting out of hand

How much more obvious can the writers at MSNBC get? I understand that they don’t like Ron Paul over there but they are out of control.

I just checked out the “Get your post-caucus spin now” story on their website’s main page. It lists how a win or lose today in Iowa will effect each candidate. Well, almost each candidate. On the republican side, they tell us the story about how great it would be for Huckabee to do well and how Romney would be hurt if he does poorly (duh). They talk about McCain and Thompson (who is rumored to drop out of the race as early as tomorrow if things go bad in Iowa). And they talk about the big hit Rudy would take if he loses to Ron Paul.

ron_paul.jpgEach candidate is given their own section with specific analysis except for Ron Paul. What gives? Wouldn’t it be less obvious to give him a bit of attention and play down a victory? Apparently Chuck Todd (the writer of this pile of journalistic crap) is unable to be so subtle. He simply left Paul off the article. Okay, we get it, the media jerks don’t want him to win. Or maybe they are jealous of all the internet attention Paul gets and don’t like us average Americans having our own opinions. I can’t wait to see what they will write if Paul does well or even wins in Iowa.

Here is my prediction… If Paul wins today in Iowa, the story will be that Iowa does not really represent the nation and has little influence on the overall campaign.

Just in:



  1. The Media is like the Government they have become the Problem!

  2. You are probably right on the money with that final prediction, I hadn’t really thought about that. But yes, they’ll be scrambling for anything at that point. I certainly hope I get to see it.

  3. I had never considered that maybe the media is just jealous of the fact that they can’t seem to control the story. That sounds a lot more plausible as opposed to a secret conspiracy to enslave us all.

    A lot of questions will get answered here in a few hours.

  4. Lets be serious. GE, Viacom, News Corp. & Disney OWN major media outlets. Next, think of how many Lockheed Martin and Boeing commercials you see…do you HONESTLY think someone so…dare I say “revolutionary” (radical?) …would be given coverage with pro-american, pro-individual and anti-globalist views like he has? Its been said… “the revolution will NOT be televised”

  5. I have a problem, I can’t get my husband to stop blogging long enough or checking out his stats to get him to unpack our house, any suggestions?

  6. Didn’t make much of a difference anyway, since Ron Paul did miserably in Iowa.

    It’s not that the media hates him as much as he’s not a significant force in the popular vote. Ron Paul’s a fad favorite among people. He gets money, but he won’t win any elections due to the fact that he just doesn’t speak to the majority of Americans.

  7. Your so right about this.

    I hope Ron wins just because I want to see how the media handles it.

  8. Ron Paul, honestly, is a fluke. He has support, but not enough to matter in the end. I like Ron Paul, as a person, but his politics are not very feasible in the modern world at this point in time.

    We don’t talk about it when we step on an ant. Ron Paul is the ant of this election, unless he pulls off another huge fundraising day, but even that will garner only marginal coverage.

    But please, go out and show support for the guy where you can. Stick to your guns.

  9. The reason is that Ru Paul is such a crazed ideologue that he makes the other goon-squad republiklan candidates look normal.
