Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

The big news story last week became the media’s non-coverage of the Ron Paul campaign. After Jon Stewart of The Daily Show successfully brought out the full nature of the media prejudice, it became the story.

That’s how bias backfires. Trying to keep Ron Paul out of the headlines led to putting Ron Paul in the headlines.

How easily a conspiracy of silence turns into a deafening noise.

Media bigots think they are doing a public service when they pick winners and throw out losers before almost anyone has even heard from the challengers. They consider it their job.

Undoubtedly they look at Ron Paul’s platform and say to themselves “This guy doesn’t fit into the normal left-right spectrum, or even neatly into his own party. That makes him unelectable. So we won’t talk about him.” This points to media’s true power: establishing what’s worth talking about.

Trouble is, by rushing to judgment against Paul, they miss the day’s major story: Paul’s appeal transcends usual party lines. It’s not just a tiny cadre of libertarians on his side, it’s conservatives and liberals and exes of both persuasions; it’s centrists who’ve never heard anyone talk about the Federal Reserve before; it’s peaceniks who are serious about ending America’s wars.

It might even be that strong core of American society that still respects honesty and consistency.

The media has missed this elsewhere, too: In repeated recalls and initiatives around the country.

Cover the big story, folks. Not just your own spin.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Ron Paul has fairly decent name recognition among the citizens that pay attention.
    Gary Johnson however has been truly ignored and I find it maddening. He acquitted himself well on Stossel but has gotten little other national attention. He did a good job for us here in NM as Governor for 8 years, leaving a budget surplus. He started a one man business that grew to employ 1000. He has real executive experience unlike Dr Ron Paul.

    Try to imagine what it would be like if Ron Paul were President….it boggles the mind and I have to say…Dare I hope???

    Worked when they end-runned Gary Johnson. Gues they thought to run the same play on Mr. Paul. Poor Johnny One-Note.
    It’s Bush’s fault.

  4. Paul Jacob says:

    Gary Johnson is a super candidate for president, who I can easily and enthusiastically support.

  5. Drik says:

    That’s why it was so important to marginalize him early and deny him the national stage. He could have been a contender. Now he’s playing catchup and getting further behind as the media continues to ignore him.
    The media is Presbo’s 5th column in his fight to subjugate THIS country.

  6. Well the media will always be the media! They should be more informative and deliver the truth to the public, not with sugar coated words.
