Following the Iowa Straw Poll that was a tie between the establishment’s Tea Party diva, Michele Bachmann, and Ron Paul, Roger Simon of Politico went on CNN and said the reason the corporate media is ignoring Paul is because they don’t think he can win.
Simon – who claims to be a Paul supporter – should know better.
Ron Paul scares the dickens out of the establishment and its lapdog propaganda machine. He has an excellent chance of winning – and that’s why the corporate media is ignoring him.
Simon’s own publication deliberately failed to mention Paul when it reported on the results of the Iowa poll. “Michele Bachmann wins Ames Straw Poll, Tim Pawlenty gets third,” the headline read.
Pawlenty dropped out of the race the same day.
The ruling elite that stage manages national elections and enters its hand-picked horses in what amounts to a fixed race is determined to make sure Ron Paul remains more or less invisible to a blindsided public. They will trot out talking heads like Roger Simon who will claim Ron Paul is being ignored because he doesn’t stand a bat’s chance in hell of taking the nomination.
It’s just the opposite. He stands a damn good chance. That’s why they are ignoring him.
