    My dislike of Jon Stewart has somewhat lessened. That took some guts. Spot on.

    • jon stewart is awesome. how dare you dislike him a little !!!

      • No, the original Daily Show with Craig Kilborn was MUCH funnier than the current version. Anyone else remember when it was a Parody of cable news networks and evening news shows? It was a much funnier show before they tried to be what they were making fun of.

    • No one cares what you dislike.

    The corporations who own the media want nothing to do with Paul and will do whatever they can do sweep him under the carpet…they are terrified of what will happen if he is elected. Thank you, Jon Stewart, for shining the glaring light of truth on this…THANK YOU!!!

    Great post.  Thank you for this.  Ron Paul is the only candidate not completely bought and sold.
    I pray that Americans will continue to wake up and fight this type of blatant censorship.

      the problem lies in that if you aren’t bought you can’t afford a seat at the table. without corporate money backing you your campaign will go nowhere, it allows corporate donors to act like a capitalist guardian council

      • But! But! something something internet age something something grass roots! something something…

        Defeatist attitudes.  The country was founded by Men who dared to dream.  What is the alternative, a life lived in fear of actually living.  Here comes the onslaught of excuses….  

        • Hadrian999 | Aug 19, 2011 at 5:13 pm |

          not defeatist at all, i just don’t believe you can change the system from the inside, you have to take the whole thing down

        • Tuna Ghost | Aug 22, 2011 at 8:41 am |

          Idealism is all well and good, but it doesn’t change the facts of the matter.  Public fundraising can certainly help, but there’s no way it can match corporate donations.  Especially now what with the “Super Pac” bullshit recently singed into legislation.  Like I said earlier, even if he raised money to get commercials on major networks with help from his followers, it won’t get him airtime on the actual news or invited to the debates.  Ron Paul is too much of a threat to both the Republicans and the Democrats to be allowed to have the attention the other far less successful candidates get.  I mean, effing Perry thinks prayer can fix climate change, fix the economy, take care of the immigration issue, cure cancer, land the space shuttle, etc. and he’s getting more and more coverage by the week.  I’m no fan of Ron Paul, but the sad fact is he’s being pushed out of the race and short of killing off most of the other candidates the public doesn’t really have any leverage.

    • Tuna Ghost | Aug 18, 2011 at 1:23 pm |

      I’m no fan of Ron Paul (he’s a damn sight better than Palin or Perry or Bachmann, who seem to be getting his share of attention in the media), but I don’t like this erasing of his presence either.  I’m afraid there’s not much the public can do–corporate money is how this race is going to be won, not popular sentiment.  The Republican party and the corporations backing them know Ron Paul won’t be able to win (especially without any funding from them) but he can still take a huge chunk of votes away from the Republican candidate, even if he runs as an independent.  The only way to stop that, in their minds, is to try and make sure he stays away from public attention.  Hence his invisibility in the media.

      As for what the public can do: like I said, Not Much.  We can demand more coverage from mainstream media, but we’re not paying for ad space on the networks.  We have no leverage whatsoever, really, as long as all the networks are doing the same thing.   Since he’s a threat to the Democrats as well, they’re certainly not going to go out of their way to give him air time.  Funding from his supporters can give him ads, but it can’t get him on the news.

      The only way we can accomplish anything is with leverage, but we don’t have any.  Short of protests and riots, there’s no way to even be heard.  And even if protests or riots got any airtime, which is unlikely, it can be easily spun as having something else as the cause.  

  7. Amen! Its great to see a guy with a viewership in the tens of millions…break form…cast inhibitions to the wind…and just say it: THE MEDIA IN THIS COUNTRY DELIBERATELY IGNORES RON PAUL!

    When it comes to Ron Paul…we’re like Chinese State TV on the topic of Tibet. “The happy people of Tibet, liberated by the Glorious People’s Republic after their long centuries of slavery to the evil regime of Buddhism, celebrate their gratitude to us with a display of their adorable native handiwork…which they have graciously supplied to our representative businessmen in the area.” (ie” the new slaves we captured after we invaded have no choice but to work in our new factories…or else they end up in a mass grave on the edge of town.)

    Its terrific to see the major media players BASHED PUBLICLY for being blatant, shameless propagandists. Every smarmy fucking one of them should be shitcanned for such conduct…but since their owners pull the strings and call the shots…its really up to us to turn the channel and refuse to watch such obvious crap.

    Look, Ron Paul, nobody who votes Republican in this day and age likes you. Do yourself a favor and go independent and send a robot to Jesse Ventura with a hologram message that says, “Help me, Ventura Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”

    • Matt Smith | Aug 18, 2011 at 10:58 am |

      I guess it was all the “nobodies” who set so many fundraising records.  I guess the majority of active duty military personnel who supported Paul in 2008 were “nobodies”.  And “nobodies” just came within a few hundred votes of winning the Iowa staw poll.

      • CancerJesus | Aug 18, 2011 at 2:16 pm |

        He won the Iowa straw poll as far as I’m concerned, Bachmann scammed most of her votes.

        • Patriot Prime | Aug 23, 2011 at 11:54 pm |

          hell yea she waived…aka paid for the straw poll fees for most if not all voters…30 greenbacks a pop…nice scam

  14. The fact that RiP is being ignored is a chip towards credibility. What really surprises me is that no seems to have learned anything from the Obama Hope & Change charade. The name of the Puppet Prez changes and nothing else. In the long run it’s the Military – Industrial – Bankster Complex that pulls the strings and gives the POTUS his marching orders.

    Vote out everyone in office, regardless of party or platform, and vote in anyone who has never been in office before. That would bring the whole thing to a grinding halt and not one shot nor one riot would be necessary to affect real change.

    • You are wrong about one thing. Something besides the name did change with the Puppet Prez, the skin tone.

      Obama basically ran for president on his race, rather than accomplishments because he accomplished nothing previously. He is a typical Chicago politician & the morons who voted for him fell for it hook, line & sinker.

    I am surprised Ron Paul has not yet been assassinated and so worried for him that he just might be killed for standing for the truth in a position of potential power. I think it is time that all of us get very serious in supporting Ron for the 2012 election and also protecting him. He really is the shining hope of this country and that’s why the ruling reptiles of this land want him dead or ignored… Please start pushing for his election and protest the media’s ignorance in the streets, at your local Starbucks, all over you tube, all over the social networks, EVERYWHERE! If we really care about the future of Americans, then we will fight for Ron Paul’s votes, attention, status uplift, and Seat in the White House! Fight for Ron Paul’s life to save ours! He’s the only human among heartless cold blooded space reptiles (not as David Icke believes) who have colder, darker, imploded heart chakras than an real reptile even can have!
