Care to elaborate?
Sure, I'll be happy to elaborate. I just went to four main stream websites, yahoo, foxnews, cnn, and washington post. All four had the exact same
layout: Bachmann's picture and saying she won, underneath, Rick Perry announces presidential run, which is at least a day old news by now. Yahoo and
fox mentioned Ron Paul, the others did not, fox even mentioned he was only 1 percent behind which makes me happy, but irrelevant, the point is, all
four supposedly separate media outlets all have the exact same format with Bachmann photo (understandably because she won) and below it, "Rick Perry
announces presidential bid." So the second news article on all four sites is a day old news article on Rick Perry's presidential run and he didn't
even get top 3 at the straw poll. Imagine if they had for a couple days "Ron Paul wants to end the fed" and even when other things happen, like
Bachmann wins, they still put right below her article "Ron Paul still wants to end the fed" but no, they don't do that, and this was four separate
media websites mind you. And of course I'm not just talking about today, in 2008 the three remaining candidates running were John McCain, Obama, and
Clinton, they didn't mention Ron Paul. Any of the Ron Paul fans on this website can attest to that. They completely ignored him 100 percent. The
republican candidate was not even picked yet, and the media just pretended like McCain was running against no one, that everyone else just dropped out
of the race. Is that responsible journalism? And although Ron Paul gets some media attention now they still do their best to ignore him at all costs.
