Ron Paul National Campaign Chairman Blasts CBS News
SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton released the following statement concerning the CBS / National Journal Republican debate:
“Ron Paul consistently polls among the top three in the key early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire. He is polling in double digits in most respected polls.
“Congressman Paul is ranked among the top three in fundraising results.
“Congressman Paul serves on the House Foreign Relations Committee.
“Congressman Paul is a veteran.
“And, Congressman Paul has contrasting views on foreign policy that many Americans find worthy of inquiry and discussion.
“CBS’s treatment of Congressman Paul is disgraceful, especially given that tonight’s debate centered on foreign policy and national security.
“Congressman Paul was only allocated 90 seconds of speaking in one televised hour. If we are to have an authentic national conversation on issues such as security and defense, we can and must do better to ensure that all voices are heard.
“CBS News, in their arrogance, may think they can choose the next president. Fortunately, the people of Iowa, New Hampshire, and across America get to vote and not the media elites.”

@CBSNews = #FAIL
[CIM Comment: Worst debate coverage, horrid online stream for the part of the debate they did not want to share with the American people. Ron Paul only getting 89 seconds of air time and then the online poll had him winning with a reported 30% and then the poll is taken down or moved without a forwarding or any link. CBS epitomizes the msm spin and anti-transparency seen on a daily basis. A legitimize debate could be held, but only through the likes of the @RealityReport, RT and other honest news sources.]
I was going to post this video 3 or 4 days ago but time was short and more pressing issues were on the radar. Today there are still items of greater importance but wanted to get this tripe out and over with.
An intense journalism effort is launched, traveling from one office down the hall to another office. Alright, no TSA grope police lines for the interview, understood. As much as I may agree to some extent with Dylan Ratigan regarding the takeover of opposition groups, whether based on politics or beliefs, he is wrong on the aspect of no representation. The lobbyist and special interest groups do not even bother trying to solicit Dr. Ron Paul as to the frugality of the effort, as they have never been successful in recruiting his vote or assistance. Regarding the rest of the plastic candidates, very true, and surprised of his ignorant statement that no one is fighting for the 99%.
The epitome of journalism comes about 3:30 into the bogus interview when the interviewer decides to focus on surfing, wtf! Airhead incorporated here. Honestly, if she worked for a true “news” agency this would have been her last interview/ air time / paycheck.
Bottom line, journalism in the US is dead and non existent in the MSM. It is nothing short of the fourth branch of the government, the propaganda branch that reads the script they are given. Supporting left or right, lol, still supporting the real owners and the agenda they have been played to follow.
Media definition: The means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines, that reach or influence people widely:
Not quite the intent of the First Amendment of the mention of the historic JFK speech, Under these considerations, the media is now disenfranchised for delivering open information to the people but instead no to promote one of two agendas, paid for by the same entity. Some want honesty in reporting (so they seek information online) while some seek news and accept what they are feed one spoon at a time, while yet others see the world threw NASCAR, baseball and football games. Understood, and Go Packers! :) But seriously, are we ever going to see investigative journalistic reporting from any MSM outlet, or more of the same crap? MSM failure has a good side as it helps, through ineptitude, the increasing influx of people getting their news and information from all the great independent sources now available. Pick a topic, it can be found honestly covers online.
Enjoy the bastardization example of journalism below. If she does not want to inspire you to turn your TV off I can not offer anymore help or suggestions. Sucks to be you.

Among the Republican presidential candidates, Ron Paul, the Libertarian-leaning firebrand that has captured the imagination of many followers nationwide, has received the least amount of coverage time over the course of the last three GOP debates.
It is one thing to flame out during a presidential debate cycle, as it appears Texas Governor Rick Perry has managed over the course of a few short weeks. This is the kind of weeding out that is to be expected in the democratic process and in the theater of public opinion that often defines the tone and perspective of American politics. It is natural and it is acceptable, whether or not one believes in the attributes of a given candidate.
But it is an entirely different matter when the media appears to be assembled in a coordinated manner to ignore the underpinnings and the overarching themes of your message, even if you are polling in a competitive top tier manner. This appears to be the nagging case with Republican presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul.
“18 minutes, 47 seconds,” the Paul campaign wrote to me in a fund-raising email delivered on Saturday. “That’s how much time I’ve been given total during the last three Republican debates to explain my message of liberty to the voters.”
While this exposure might seem like a somewhat standard length of time across three consecutive GOP debates, the total is not reflective of Paul’s competitive polling figures.
“But since poll after poll has shown me in third place nationally over these past few months, surely that amount of time left me in the middle of the pack when compared to my establishment opponents . . . right? Wrong,” the Paul email continued. “Out of all the candidates, my speaking time was dead last – even behind candidates I’ve been beating in the polls for months!”
The Paul campaign has struggled for media attention since the Texas congressman initially inserted himself onto the national stage. Paul has had notable and unusual accomplishments for a Republican presidential candidate, such as selling out New York City’s largest nightclub, as his campaign’s web property detailed in late September.
“Ron Paul continues to inspire a movement that no other campaign can duplicate in its conviction and broadness,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton in comments posted on the Ron Paul 2012 campaign web site.
The media blackout, as Paul sees it, is nothing short of questionable. But the Libertarian-minded candidate does not appear willing to give up the fight.
“As much as I hate to say it, despite the polls, despite my campaign’s success, and despite the fund-raising numbers we consistently put up – the national media continues to pretend I don’t exist,” the Paul campaign concluded in their email communication. “Well, I’m determined to break through their blackout and talk straight to the voters.”
We the people are tired of the media’s lies, manipulation, and the BLACKOUT. We will NOT let the media pick OUR next President! Join with us, and donate to Dr. Ron Paul’s Money Bomb on October 19th, and let’s see the media, “Black THIS Out!” Be sure to promote this, we want this to be the biggest Money Bomb yet!
