Ron Paul: Not Ready for Prime Time

At least according to the mainstream media.

John Stossel sat down to interview Ron Paul. Do you think ABC has any plan to air it on TV? Not a chance. Here's how Stossel glosses over that decision:
    Despite relatively low poll numbers, Paul has had a big influence on the presidential campaign. That's in part because he's raised a ton of money, and in part because of the passionate following he has on the Web. It's one reason we're posting my interview with Paul only on the Internet, where the debate about Paul is very active. In fact, he's the most Googled presidential candidate.
You can watch four-and-a-half minutes of that hour-long interview here. (Naturally, ABC selected what they saw as probably the most "controversial" segment of the interview.)

The fact that more people aren't crying "Foul!" is mind-boggling. We talk about how "free" we are in this country, and yet we keep silent as the Beltway bureaucrats and their media lapdogs choose our political leaders for us. Here is a popular candidate from one of the two "acceptable" parties, who has defied all odds up to this point, and the media continues to relegate him to the sidelines.

What's even more amazing is that Paul is treated as an extremist kook, even though his positions on the major issues reflect those of the ones who gave their lives to build this country. If that isn't a wake-up call for all Americans, I don't know what is.

UPDATE: You can watch all segments of the interview here.

Most of Paul's supporters don't watch network news on TV. Network media is unbelievably stupid, usually consisting of sensational crime stories, hypochondria and vulgar politics.

I don't even know if an ABC audience could comprehend Paul, their skulls would shatter to think like that.

I find it interesting that Stossel doesn’t make more of this because he is an acknowledged Libertarian.

I believe the MSM regulates him to the side line because they are equally in bed with Republicans as much as the Republican’s claim they are with the Democrats. The bottom line is that the MSM protects the status quo and Ron Paul is not the status quo.

Whats amusing to me is the fact that many MSM outlets still refuse to acknowledge Paul as a viable candidate with some real momentum behind him. He is still labeled a "darkhorse candidate" or a "fringe candidate." I mean really, how can they can take a joker like the Huckster seriously... but then again, lack of cognitive ability is really the virtue which fuels and characterizes most mainstream news "providers."
