More Paul Paranoia

Tom DiLorenzo, at the Lew Rockwell blog:

"It was OK for the MSM (main-stream media) to cover Ron Paul's campaign as long as there was no voting taking place. After all, they have to have SOMETHING to talk and write about, and all the other candidates sing the same old boring tune. But once the voting started there has indeed been a complete MSM blackout."

Google News, as of a minute ago -- I have snipped out the "non-MSM" hits):

Results 1 - 10 of about 25,822 for ron-Paul:

In short, Google finds 15 MSM stories covering Paul in the last three hours, including stories from CNN, The NY Times, The Washington Post, and MSNBC. In the last week, 25,819 stories mentioned Paul, including 257 from CBS, 38 from ABC, 45 from NBC, 113 from CNN, and 83 from Fox News. Wow, for staging a "complete blackout," the MSM is doing a pretty lousy job of it!

DiLorenzo says, "It will be interesting to see how much longer it takes the internet to break up this monopolistic political conspiracy."

I don't know the answer to that, but I can assert that it only takes it a few minutes to break up nutty political conspiracy theories!

  1. I noticed that "blackout" claim too and thought it was pretty specious. I know they don't talk about him as much as they should given the fact that his stances on the issues are much better than the rest of those clowns, but the MSM don't realize that. All they know is he was never likely to win, so they don't cover him. The "complete blackout" stuff is nonsense and DiLorenzo should know that.

    Did DiLorenzo forget about Tucker Carlson on MSNBC? He seems to interview Ron Paul every chance he gets, and certainly mentions him often. Maybe he hasn't since the primaries began, I don't know, but Fox is the only TV station that blatantly avoids or covers up Ron Paul news.
