Wow, this is a clear conflict of interest. Clear and blatant, God I wish there was something we can do about this.

I think its time RP used this to his advantage, show how he has been pushed aside, called radical, and blatantly blacked out by the media. Runner up in 2 primaries and its all been about Newt and Romney.

Nothing angers me more than when CNN shows any footage on debates or anything and he is flat out ignored aside from little jabs. This should be illegal. This is a terrorist act. How can we change it?

It does not matter, he still has major connections and influence. Dont you think his buddies at Bain want him to win? Why do you think they are donating to his campaign?

and you don't think he still gets a significant amount of kickback from them? Who cares if he hasnt worked there in a long time. He still has ties.

Same way Rumsfeld still had ties to Monsanto and most of Obama's staff still has ties to Goldman Sachs or Citicorp.

Having connections and "influence" (ie Support) isn't illegal.

And I don't think his buddies are donating much to his campaign....it's all going to his Super PAC

There is no legal conflict.

Private businesses can do whatever they want...you know...free market and all that. I would think you would knwo that if you are a Ron Paul supporter.

No one said it was illegal. Typical leftist, trying to start something out of nothing.
Yes, there is a conflict of interest. Do you really think the company he was CEO of would actually support Ron Paul? get real. Apparently you have never experienced life in an executive capacity or you would understand how it all works. Just because he isn't the CEO of Bain, doesn't mean he isn't "in" with them. Guys like him run in packs. They get each other seats on boards of corporations so they can pad each others pockets.

You should really know how it all works before jumping in and trying to stir the pot.

An according to his own Executive Branch Financial Disclosure, he still has a stake of ownership in Bain capital as well as others such as Goldman Sachs.

Disclosure

So yes, there is a conflict of interest.

I'm sure somehow, putting undo pressure on the media has to be a crime, or at least really close.

I agree that Ron Paul should use this to his advantage.
I read CNN everyday just to see what their feeding the masses.
Ron Paul is hardly ever mentioned and if he is,
it's at the end or the article after most have lost their attention span.

What we need is a media blackout day.
Similar to the SOPA protest, but aimed at MSM.
Tell them this is the day you will lose your viewers in protest for not providing accurate and balanced reporting on the presidential race.

I propose Jan. 30th, the day before SC primaries as the blackout day. I'm going to start spreading it!

Little Sis also does good with linking campanies and people.

Is it ethical for someone who is in the gov't to have ANYTHING to do with media on any level? I think not. But then it is not ethical for any corporation to have ANYTHING to have to do with gov't. If OUR gov't would realize and fix this problem most of the worlds problems would go away because officials would have to depend on their own merits to get elected. It is a simple problem to fix. Get corporations out of government.
