Wow, I was blown away by an excerpt from tonight's Daily Show. A fellow meyourselfmber Dance4Life created a thread on
this,www.abovetopsecret.com... but it kind of got lost in
the Ron Paul shuffle. I can actually believe this, but man the obviousness of it is disturbing. Granted something similar happened last time
he ran and debated, but this time he was only 200 votes from winning the straw poll, and the majority of the audience roared in response to his
statements. I felt this was so compelling, and an expicit example of a media coverup, from all the outlets.
Judge for yourself:
Full Daily Show Episode, Paul part stats at 5:30
Ali Velshi is interviewed at the end of the show, and the discussion is pretty enlightening and worth a watch, starts at 13:55
1. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (4823, 28.55%)
2. Congressman Ron Paul (4671, 27.65%)
3. Governor Tim Pawlenty (2293, 13.57%)
4. Senator Rick Santorum (1657, 9.81%)
5. Herman Cain (1456, 8.62%)
6. Governor Rick Perry (718, 3.62%) write-in
7. Governor Mitt Romney (567, 3.36%)
8. Speaker Newt Gingrich (385, 2.28%)
9. Governor Jon Huntsman (69, 0.41%)
10. Congressman Thad McCotter (35, 0.21%)
WTF man!?!?! Pardon the Paul redundancy, but I felt compelled to make sure many here see this specific example.

This needs to be in the General Conspiracy or Political Conspiracy Forum.
Anyway, yeah, the media is being blatant about not talking about Ron Paul. It's almost become some sort of on-air joke. It seems they talk more about
how they don't talk about him than actually talking about him.
thanks for posting this.
i never saw the other thread and i'm glad i got a chance to see the clip..
the balls on these dudes, to sit around and blatantly lie on television. facts are facts and ron paul is consistently ending up towards the top of
polls and not even a mention. i guffawed when i heard the 'lets not count out john huntsmen' line...but then i realized that wasn't part of the
bit....it was the actual news.
What makes you think Ron isn't one of "Them"?
for Ron, I don't like any politician.
I doubt he is, he wants to cut the arms of the monster that is our government, which has its hands in practically everything, and remove the one power
source the elite have: the Federal Reserve. If Ron Paul was "one of 'Them'" he's the most the most productive and malevolent cancer I've ever seen.

This stopped surprising me the moment Ron Paul ran for the 2008 election, and got the responses from the media and fellow candidates during the
Bottom line is: Most people don't expect the media to be truthful, or fair, or in any way respectable. It's become widely known that they
manipulate, omit information, and basically slant things to show in a light more pleasing to their owners. That being said, a fair number of people
don't rely on the mass media outlets. Which is one good reason you have ATS, and is why you see Ron still up there in the polls.
I for one am pleased to see this. It shows how desperate Fox News is, it also sheds evidence that Ron Paul is for real - considering the media isn't
eating him up - like the manufactured Obama craze.
I think MSM is digging itself a hole it can't get out of. The people are fed up with them. Everyone I talk to on the streets these days is fully
aware that the system is extremely corrupt. As it continues to effect people's pockets, more will wake up. I for one am glad to see an actual
candidate be worth of voting for (Ron Paul).
From Bush to Obama, I have not voted for a candidate in years. I may now have to register republican in order to put my two cents into this debacle.
Although we all know how well our voting system works.
People said nice things about Obama in his campaign...until he was elected.
I'm just saying, what makes people trust him so much. Isn't it possible he is just saying all the right things?
There is a fundamental difference between Ron and Obama. Ron speaks with passion about important problems that need attention, in some cases
he will even propose a solution to those problems. It's a step beyond the pretty word play of Obama, he doesn't just instill a desire for change, he
describes what sort of change the US should aim for and how it can be achieved. He didn't just pop onto the scene all of sudden with a very shadowy
background, he's been on the scene for years and obviously has the energy and motive to get a job done.
i just watched this a little while ago! i was blown away - kudos to Jon Stewart!! he did an excellent job of getting the truth out there, and yet it
was so frickin' funny - i about peed my pants on the gary busey part.
best line ever - "how did this man become the 13th floor in a hotel?!?!?"
we just need to keep persisting and don't let the antagonizers sidetrack us into engaging in their petty arguments!!
