I've been down on Jon Stewart for a while with his shameless misinformation campaign, but I gotta hand it to him, he stepped up on this issue.

I am a huge Jon Stewart fan, and this was a classic. This morning, one of the MSM shows was talking about the Ron Paul Blindness. Their conclusion was classic: he is simply not relevant. That is why he is not getting air time. As Reagan would say, "There you go again."

Ron Paul is the 800 pound gorilla in the room.  My thoughts is the Tea Party will eat everyone's lunch.

Ronny "The Conservative God" also mentioned the "Aliens could bring harmony the world" routine and he was loved by all on the right: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfejBpD_wm4

Ron Paul is the only candidate who has intelligence and wisdom of substance that doesn't just pertain to mere political strategy.

I would love to see RP decimate Oblahma (the former constitutional law professor) in a debate, which he most certainly would.

Agree.  Ron Paul is for real. 

 US public has grown up on the "Boob Tube" and been brainwashed until needs the kind of actors that have populated the tube during the last few decades.  

Except for Paul, the current political scene scares me.  There are none in this current crop that I want to turn loose with my future.

I am really starting to believe this "ignore Ron Paul" tactic is going to backfire in a big way. Amercians generally love an underdog, and when a seemingly decent, honorable old guy like Ron is getting kicked around by TPTB, it will cause people to take notice, that otherwise wouldn't have given 2 shits.

Unofficial anecdotal evidence: My block in central Austin (which is a dot of blue amoung a sea of red) has 5 Ron Paul yard signs (including mine and soon to be 6 as I'm picking one up for a neighbor who wants one).  My block 4 years ago was all Hope and Change Obammer signs. For what it's worth.

Look, the MSM have been owned by the banksters since the 1930's: See Congressman Charles Lindbergh and Congressman Louis McFadden. Both read into the Congressional record how the Fed, working through the NYT syndicate, bought the editorial viewpoints of the nation's newspapers, and eventually the televised news.

No one paid attention to Ron Paul ten years ago. Everything seemed to be going okay. Today, his message about the Fed and the corporatocracy are more than relevant; they are a burning torch in a fireworks factory.

Let's hope the whole dump goes up like Hiroshima. BTW, this was one of the best segments ever from Jon Stewart.

The MSM clearly believes America is not ready for an honorable, principled politician.  

But I really hope you are right, I want this "Ignore Paul" tactic to become so fucking blatant that more and more people wake up to the fact that democracy is a lie....

Nice theory, but is tripped up by the fact that Boobus Americanus will most certainly be led by the nose. Paul's candidacy requires the voter to think, and that is something We The People, the bottom 99%, will not do.

If we actually had a free market capitalist system in the world that would be the case. But we have a crony capitalist system where the ownership of government power is essential. As a result, those you mention are not for him but are arrayed AGAINST him and THAT is precisely why the corporate media intentionally ignores him.

I have said since the results were announced that the way the straw poll turned out was THE BEST POSSIBLE outcome that could have happened for Ron Paul.  If Ron would have flat out wont the poll, the poll would have been cast aside as a farce. A <1% loss makes the media focus on how relavent the poll was, thus adding to the fire that he is a relavent canidate.  

The hypocrasy is exposed, and more people are seeing it.  It's all a scam, and people are waking up. This poll did more for Ron's cause than a first place finish would ever have done.  


Ron Paul 2012!

This poll is only relevant and credible in the eyes of the establishment media because the corn dogging milf won it.  If Dr. Paul had won, the poll would have been silently dismissed as irrelevant, would have received no news coverage. 

Hell, as the Stewart episode points out, they've tried to marginalize Paul in the MSM anyway.  WTF is up with the "Top Tier" repeated over and over?  They were all merely briefed by their producer on the talking points of the day handed down by TPTB and blurted them out on TV.  How fucking irrelevant can television "news" get?

Ron Paul 2012!

Someone should do a youtube video calld; "Anatomy of a Mainsream Media Conspiracy to censor Dr Ron Paul."

In a coordinated effort, the MSM conspired to censor Ron Paul of any discussion concerning his virtual win at the Iowa Straw Poll.

The MSM's corporate job is to brainwash and deceive people through Orwellian omission of facts, and to select the people who they deem fit for you to vote for.

The video should be about the blatantly obvious attack on Dr Paul this past weekend as 100% proof of the conspiracy, and Reporters, who are virtually all card carrying members of the CFR, and the role they play in our lives to socially engineer us and our decisions.

Thank God hardly anyone watches them anymore.

I'm not liking it because it was most effective advertising. The writers lost a lot of us over the last year or two and know this will help regain those losses. Sucker punch, yo. Plus, it was really empty in that even now John is free to mention Ron or not.

I admit some times Jon doesn’t show his colors but to call him a horses ass?

When he tells it like it is he is worth watching. A few years back he had that piece of shit Jim Cramer on the show and hammered the shit out of him, it’s sad to see freedom of the press such a failure that the court jester has to bring to light that the MSM’s responsibility as Americans are to not misinform the public.

It’s fucking treasonous  

must see

The entire world is being bent over because the crony capitalism is multinational. Virtually all governments are corporate owned with only a few exceptions, small countries like Iceland who bravely told the bankers to go fuck themselves as we should have. So, unless you live in one of those countries, expect a pearl necklace yourself.
