Judge Napalitano, a Fox News analyst who's has a show focusing on dangers of eroding freedoms in the USA, is one of thousands of people across the
internet who have blacked out his face on his internet profile both in protest of the "Ron Paul media blackout", and in favor of an enormously hyped
"money bomb" donation drive to take place on October 19th in what is expected to be Ron Paul's biggest donation day by a wide margin.

To understand just how biased the media is against Ron Paul and the degree he is ignored, first consider Ron Paul's position within the national
polls. The guy polling last is Jon Huntsman, who scored 0% to 3% in recent national polls. Ron Paul has scored 5% to 13%, and is in a tie with Newt
Gingrich for forth place in the middle of the pack. See a chart of the polling at:
So, despite being in 4th place by what could be considered a large margin of victory over the bottom tier, Ron Paul gets the very least coverage of
1. A Pew Research study shows Ron Paul getting the least news coverage of any candidate.
2. A University of Minnesota study showed Ron Paul gets the least face time on televised debates, including
But, even when the news media covers Paul, they tend to put a ridiculous spin against him in the stories. Consider this collage of headlines:
"Cain comes in 2nd to Paul in straw poll of social conservaties; Santorum places 3rd." Washington Post
"Paul and Cain Win Values Voter Straw Poll" Fox News (Herman Cain actually finished 2nd by a fair margin!)
"Value Voters straw poll organiizers suggest a fix in Ron Paul's win" ... "suggest ballot stuffing may have scewed results" CBS News
"Around 3,000 people took part in the Value Voter Summit Straw Poll today and the results more or less confirm the absolute uselessness of these
political excersizes." NYmag.com
However when Herman Cain won a Florida straw poll, the media showered him with praise and more rarely used the phrase "non-binding" to describe the

In 2007, Ron Paul made very big waves in the media with a "money bomb" event that generated about $6 million for his campaign in a single day. Ron
Paul now has over twice as much support, and a money bomb scheduled for October 19th will make for a very interesting day for Ron Paul's campaign, who
is already in the process of getting big media attention for his "Restore America" plan to cut $1 Trillion from Federal spending.
More people than Ron Paul's 2007 money bomb event have pledged to donate to Paul's campaign on October 19, but after having been asked to donate early
and delivered on that request, will Paul supporters be able to pull through with the big number like the one achieved in 2007? But on the other hand,
support for Ron Paul has more than doubled leaving room for growth. But, most people are much worse off financially due to the economy. So, I'm very
interested to hear opinions of how Ron Paul may do tomorrow and whether his campaign can take off with the combination of the money bomb and a new
"Restore America" financial plan for the USA budget. Will this be a break-out event for Ron Paul?
Please flag the heck out of this thread to make it an epic one to match the epicness of the October 19 "Black THIS Out" event! You can see the current
progress of the money bomb at: www.RonPaul2012.com on the home page.
