Has the media been fair to Ron Paul?

    Ron Paul decided to run this time as a republican because he thought this time around would be different & he would not be ignored. I guess he was wrong. I dont support him, but i do think its wrong of the media not to pay more attention to him. They pay more attention to Sarah Palin then they do to him. Theres something really wrong with that.

    Absolute NO. The media has been complete unfair to Ron Paul. CNN has even been unfair in a few circumstances I have seen and called him unelectable. Remember though that Ronald Reagan was treated like this, and he went on to win.
    Ron Paul stands for many many things that this country needs now. Fixing our economy, bring troops home from Iraq, restoring our liberties and freedoms, and getting rid of the Federal Reserve. We need a sound money system, not one that prints phony money and devalues the American's money they have in their bank accounts.
    We need a real plan to start economic growth in this country and Ron is the only candidate that has one. He won't be working for any banksters, he will kick the money changers out of the white house and congress. Then perhaps we can get some real work done. Those congressmen that don't abide with and getting this country fiscally sound need to pack their bags, because they are going home and not coming back.
    America is waking up and we want change, real change, not just a new face.

    In my opinion it's fairly obvious that Ron Paul is being ignored by the media. Out of all the people I know, very few trust the news media anymore. Bias is blatantly evident everywhere in the various news casts and articles, and that bias is usually liberal. (I'm non-partisan and despise party- or candidate-pandering with a passion. News should be objective. Always.)

    I would like to see more on Ron Paul , considering most news is not , and most news just out right cut him from the picture altogether and make it painfully obvious they are trying to push what they want u to see instead of what is actually there. Three news groups talked about the 2 above Ron Paul in the polls and the one below him but didn't even mention Ron Paul at all , what gives? its as if Ron Paul wasn't even in the poll. our news is supposed to help the american people by keeping them informed with facts and interviews of the whole , not just bits and pieces of what the reporters biased ideas are or opinions are. Please as a news reporter help us get the honest facts about the whole issue or issues presented before us. So we as a people can be better prepared to ask questions and have a better understanding of what we all are being presented with.

    It's more a matter that the news doesn't include him as a viable candidate. He is being treated better by many commentators on a personal level, but they just dismiss him collectively as a viable candidate. He will break the status as a "fringe" candidate regardless of what happens. But, if the media collectively decided he was a viable candidate, he would stop being a "fringe" candidate tomorrow.
