CBS Excludes Ron Paul from New Hampshire 2012 Campaign News Coverage Blowback Ensues

By Kurt Wallace

Thursday morning January 5th, 2012 on the Early Show, CBS news political correspondent Jan Crawford discusses the New Hampshire primary in video below which is titled ‘New Hampshire is the new Iowa’. During this segment they discuss every candidate in the Republican primary including Bachmann who dropped out, excluding Ron Paul from the entire segment. By not even mentioning Ron Paul’s name, once again, CBS brings into major question their ethics as a news agency. This segment becomes a bit comical/infuriating for Paul supporters as the report states that Romney has a 30 point lead over his rivals displaying Suffolk University Poll numbers for New Hampshire Romney 43% (skips mentioning Ron Paul who has 24% according to Washington Times) then they move to Gingrich, Huntsman and Santorum.

As a result CBS is getting Blowback Slammed on CBS’s video page:

Did Ron Paul drop out?

by IngotNews January 7, 2012 12:41 AM EST
Wow, this really is pathetic “journalism”. You cite a poll, and then just blatantly leave somebody out of it (Ron Paul, of course) who you don’t like and is doing well. I hope this gets some publicity for Ron Paul and how amazingly he is doing despite all this complete black-out by the media (and especially CBS). This really shows that he is what the people want (and not what the people in power want).

by answerman1949 January 7, 2012 12:06 AM EST
At least you gave Ron Paul 89 seconds in your lousy debate. You leave him completely out of this video, even though he is running a strong second in New Hampshire.

by thetruthnothinmore January 6, 2012 1:34 PM EST
Wow. It is amazing how biased the media is. They know they are out of a job when Ron Paul is President. The alternative media is going to replace the mainstream media.

What an egregious omission of Dr. Ron Paul! Shame on you for this poor journalism. You’ve just lost a reader and a viewer, CBS! I was a big fan of 60 Minutes, but feel I can no longer trust the source. Do svidaniya!

by neal555 January 6, 2012 3:24 AM EST
Could you have made it anymore blatantly obvious that you ignored Ron Paul who is at 24%. Main stream news is going the way of something you would watch in North Korea, only with better graphics. Quit treating Americans like sheep. So completely disgusted!

Additionally the reporter Jan Crawford’s Facebook Page is beginning to be slammed.

One CBS employee Lou Miller states on her page:

Lou Miller: Jan, As a longtime employee of CBS Corp I find it embarrassing to be associated with our network when journalists such as yourself choose to fabricate the news rather then report it. You reported polling numbers that only added up to 65% of respondents, what about the other 35%? Do you really think your viewers are that stupid that they would not notice an obvious omission? In the future please try to demonstrate some integrity in your work, because your performance reflects on the network as well as your many fellow CBS employees who take pride in our work


Here is the segment which entirely excludes Ron Paul:

    Good article on the outrageous MSM censorship/bias against Ron Paul. My television is sad – I’m always yelling at it!  What I wrote today on Paul:

  • Rawlings151

    Ron Paul does not fit into the new world order agenda.

  • Rawlings151

    Ron Paul bleeds sanity!

    Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate who actually understands why America is going downhill – and FAST.  He is the ONLY candidate who can REVERSE this downhill slide.  Get the word out.  THIS is our LAST CHANCE!

    STOP WATCHING THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA. you won’t learn anything by watching it you only get dumber….. You will learn more truth by reading 5 minutes of alternative media than watching 24hours of MSM. All these journalists are going to get what they deserve when all their stocks collapse in the coming crash, their kids can’t get jobs and their grandkids have to pay for it all. But they don’ care about their children or grandchildren they only care about where their next vacation is and how big their next television set will be. But it’s ok people don’t get mad at them because they will be judged…. oh yes maybe not in this life but they will be judged at the gates of their next life….. when they leave this cosy life, things will change dramatically because they are going to an extremely warm and dark place for eternity…. enjoy MSM 

  • Jean

    I didn’t get her name but a woman correspondent on Schieffer’s New Year’s Day program (also CBS) said something to the effect that Ron Paul can’t possibly be elected, while their own poll was on the screen, showing Paul in 2nd place!
    Paul is the only candidate who has not weaseled on anything he has said.
    Too bad the American public votes for the pretty face instead of the intelligent mind.

  • Gh1961a


    I have figured out the game the mainstream media is playing…it is on a point system that goes like this:

    +1 POINT: mention a media “front runner” by full name…

    +1/2 POINT:  mention a media “front runner” by partial name…

    -2 POINTS: mention RON PAUL …

    +2 POINTS: mention RON PAUL and say something negative about him…

    Now, there is a reason that sometimes you only see people being interviewed from the waist up…

    For example, if there is an interview at a round table…voluntarily, Dick Morris using his mouth with under table guise is trying to get someone to smile…if he is successful…that persons point(s) go to Dick…

    The winner gets a date with Dick as evidenced from the presence of santorum(n)…

    Because Dick can not please any of the mainstream media females, in the case a of a female winner, the date is with Laura Ingraham…Laura’s command of the poll goes without question…

    On a personal note, I have also concluded that Bill O’Reilly is always a loser because he can’t control himself when Dick is around…

    JAN CRAWFORD is the CBS “Chief” Political Correspondent…this says a lot
    about the credibility of CBS coverage…there is no one at the helm…

      the constitution as you described as that old outdated piece of junk, is what protects you to spew your vile verbal diarhea, i fought to defend your right  to free speech when i was in vietnam. You expose yourself as an ignorant asshole with no common sense whatsoever. I am now more convinced that most of the members of congress have the same ideology as you, but i am not worried at all because we the people are going to vote those bastards out along with the evening trash this coming election in November.

    Hey folks your vote doesn’t count one iota.

    Read the U.S. Constitution; presidents are put in office by the electoral college, not by any
    stretch of the imagination by the majority of people voting.

    What hog wash, and only fools and the uninformed electorate (and you know who you are) believe in this media hype and trash perpetrated for far too long.

    Here’s one for everyone:

    I dare you to find in the U.S. Constitution and/of the Declaration of Independence any right to vote. Guess what? It does not and never did exist. Surprised. Noe me, some of us intelligentia already knew this from years and years ago.

    So go ahead and waste your time and energy wasting your time campaigtning for fools from their bully pulpit preaching nothing but cow manure for you sheeple to devour forever and ever since you believe this bullshit anyway.

    It is only local elections held in states, counties, municipalities, and cities that your vote
    has any actual merit; not in the election of president and/or vice president.

    Wake up america, quit being hookwinked.

    If you think sending me a screed of million will change my mind,  you’re sadly mistaken. Ask any intelligent constitutional scholar if I spoke the truth.

    Go ahead, I dare you than publish it herein.

      Looks like Kent Perry just blew a huge hole in your narcissistic tirade there, cosmo.  And, incidentally, you’re missing the whole point. Jan Crawford intentionally omitted a viable, mainstream-threatening candidate from mention, most likely at the bidding of her superiors. It was a blow to unbiased journalism of the highest degree.  Now go back to your basement and think about that.  Don’t come up for dinner until you’re called.

    • Amanda

      Cosmo, while you are correct about the electoral college, the whole point is that Americans are making a difference. We need to stand up and show the government that we are upset, we are angry, and we are not going to take it anymore. Even if Ron Paul didn’t win, we have records showing to what lengths the US Government and media went to make sure that the word of Ron Paul didn’t succeed. The fact is, we are  disillusioned with the government and they need to know that. We don’t trust the US Government just because they tell us to. We see, blatantly now, how much they do NOT care about us and are not working for us. Regardless whether or not he wins, we’ve made various statements through our efforts.

    I’d like to encourage any enterprising lawyers out there to bring a

    Someone desperately needs to intervene — this is completely out of
    control and on every mainstream national news channel. Not only do we have to contend with the Diebold machines and
    vote rigging, but this deliberate and illegal misleading and meddling in
    every American’s right to a fair election process!

    Just IMAGINE what a landslide Ron Paul would win by if there were no
    lies, smears, misrepresentations of his stances, and he was given equal
    time on every news channel as the pre-selected poster boys for the status quo war machine and banking cartel are given!

    Are there any true journalists working in the mainstream media? How embarasing to be part of such an obviously biased organization against a true Patriot Dr. Ron Paul. Hopefully the individual journalists will begin to decide to do the work they should be doing and not whoring themselves out.

  • Cynthia Dobson Lanpher

    Do we need any further proof that the mainstream media wants Romney to run against Obama. I think it is pretty obvious that if Dr. Paul’s message was treated fairly, and he won the nomination, he would only gain tremendous momentum and pummel Obama in any debate and take the general election by a landslide. So obvious what these drones on CBS and the other networks are being paid to do by the corporations they work for who are in bed with our government. We have no real free press in the country. They are only mouthpieces for our very corrupt Government.

  • DVD

    Unbelievable!  In addition to completely ignoring Ron Paul at 24% and rising, they also did not mention McCain’s blooper when he said “Barack Obama” instead of “Mitt Romney” – – What a bunch of worthless shills for the bankers.  At least I know who to be against when I (rarely) watch the Continuous Bowel Spumes network channel

    The use of the airways is for the benefit of all the public.  Your unprofessional use, which is documented by your bias news reporting, should and will result in an examination of your license to broadcast over our airways.  You are certainly entitled to your own opinion but as a representative of the news media you have shirked your responsibility to report all the news without favoritism toward any specific political philosophy of your choice.

    The biased  reporting characteristic of CBS,  has played a significant role in the destruction of what was once a country worthy of emulation.  It has lead to the institution of a government so unlike the one treasured by our founding fathers as to be unrecognizable to those to whom freedom and liberty are of very high priority.  Ironically, you only ensure your demise with such policies.

    Dear CBS: I always try to cut others slack when something seems amiss in reporting what are often complex issues in what have become rather small packages. Perhaps an inadvertent oversight here and there is excusable. Perhaps time pressures or misunderstandings take a line of questioning off course.  But an outright omission of Ron Paul by CBS in the instant case is so patently discriminatory as to constitute journalistic malpractice.  The only consequence now will be the BLOWBACK from the loss of your former viewers.  You have treated a candidate who earned 7 delegates (same as Romney and Santorum) from Iowa and is now polling a strong second in NH and treat him like this is still 2008.  Do you think this is some High School contest for president of the senior class? That’s what your coverage sounds like. This would get no more than a D in any journalism course.  Journalism MUST be grounded on some semblance (at least) of fairness and objectivity. Once you lose that you might as well enlist in the Orwellian PROPAGANDA MINISTRY, but Americans will not tolerate this chronic pathological lying (by omission).  The only saving grace is that you’ve thus revealed your goals and lack of integrity.  Thank you for that. Moreover, your journalistic malpractice affirms what we viewers now have come to understand: CBS and its fellow (lame)stream media colleagues and “legacy journalism” is now a DEAD LETTER.  And don’t think you can just jump ship as it sinks and find support on internet newspaper or television platforms and blogs and all will be well. Not so fast. Your personal journalistic lack of integrity will follow you – and rest assured we will not watch you, we no longer will read you, we no longer trust you, and your opinion and analysis is meaningless and irrelevant.      

  • Matt Metelsky

    if you hate Ron Paul, you hate America.  He did not come up with his own policies, his policies are those of our founding fathers.  How bout you take a coin outta your pocket and read it, “in god we trust” , start with that buddy.

    • Atedogonce1

      I think CBS is guilty of bad journalism here.  But you have to keep your facts straight, too.  “In God We Trust” has nothing to do with the founding fathers — the theocratic phrase wasn’t added to coins until after Origin of Species was released, creating a spiritual crisis among the superstitious masses.

    I hate Ron Paul, frankly (though I do like his persona, I detest his politics). However, to not mention him in the primaries makes me very confused.  I’m a democrat…I can relate to military non-interventionism.  Who is CBS shilling for here?  Dems are FOR non-intervention.  There is only one answer: they are in cahoots with the Republican National Committee.

        4.Supports economic theory that is repudiated by every lettered economist?
        5.Is opposed to the Civil Rights Act on the grounds that the states (you know, like Georgia and South Carolina) should set the laws concerning voting, transportation and anti-discrimination laws?
        6.Has gone on record saying we should not have fought the Nazis?
        7.Has as recently as two months ago been photographed smiling with the Editor of Storm Front, a Nazi rag?
        8.Was opposed to the Voting Rights Act?
        9.Is opposed to the CONCEPT of the public commons.
        10.Is opposed to the idea of the Federal Government investigating corporate crime. (he has gone on record saying he is opposed to Federal Detective work).
        11.Opposes handicap parking as “intruding on private property?”

            thats how I got to being a Ron Paul supporter, I stopped listening to the frauds on Fox and on the radio! they slam the liberal media for B.S. they do it too, and they do it to their own candidates, they are more for party than country, it’s a reality show now because we’ve veered so far from the constitution!

          sounds good to me…   it obviously goes deeper than these moot points.  he is AGAINST government.  so yeah, anything the government does he is against.  the soviet union really helped the rights of the working people…. LOL    cmon…  stop believing the lies.  the government is a framework for crooks to get their way “legally”.

            You just don’t get it.  “Racist businesses will go out of business???”  That flies in face of ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY.  The basic concept that sums up Ron Paul: if I don’t like how you look, your money isn’t good enough to purchase things here.  How would you like it if you had only one general store within 20 miles, but the owner “didn’t like brown eyed people.”  Instead of money being legal tender, both public and private, according to Ron Paul it is NOT legal tender if someone “doesn’t like you.”  You can go drive 60 miles instead, and HOPE that the next guy doesn’t have something against brown eyes.  The Civil Rights Act made that illegal…it made it so you have to ACCEPT MONEY FROM ANYONE THAT WISHES TO PURCHASE YOUR PUBLICLY DISPLAYED GOODS.  If you are opposed to that, it is because you ignorant of American history and have probably never personally experienced institutional racism.

          1.  He also doesn’t believe the federal government has any right or authority under the constitution to make laws regarding it one way or the other. So, moot point.
          2. Is it? Let me know which one of the enumerated powers granted the federal government by the constitution that you feel it falls under.
          3. It is my understanding that he is opposed to Federal mandates on how public education funds are spent. He wants to give block grants to the states for education. He supports vouchers for any private school, not just religious ones.
          4. Yes, the economic theory that predicted the real estate bubble ten years ago, while those “lettered” economists you’re talking about we’re screaming “BUY BUY BUY” fueling an orgy of malinvestment that we STILL haven’t recovered from yet. The economic theory that dictated that we drastically cut spending post WWII in order to grow our economy properly, while again, the “lettered” economists of the day were screaming that drastic cuts would lead to widespread depression. History has shown that Keynesian economic thinking is popular because it gives politicians an excuse to do what they want anyway: Spend tax money on their campaign donors.
          5. Incorrect. He is opposed to the Civil Rights Act because it violates private property rights. Let the racist assholes go out of business, and the businesses that spring up in their place will welcome everyone with open arms, not arms twisted by the federal government.
          6. Please provide a valid source, as I haven’t seen that anywhere.
          7. Oh god, a politician who smiles when people walk up and ask for a photo, that is just UNHEARD OF. Wait, since Santorum is smiling in this picture with a Ron Paul Supporter, does that make him a Ron Paul supporter?! I’m confused.
          8. Taken directly from wikipedia (Feeling alittle lazy, but I think they sum it up well) Paul has indicated that he did not object to the voting rights clauses,
          but rather to restrictions placed on property rights by the bill.[267]
          He felt the federal interference mandated by the bill was costly and
          unjustified because the situation for minorities voting is much
          different than when the bill was passed 40 years ago. Many of Texas’
          Republican representatives voted against the bill, because they believe
          it specifically singles out some Southern states, including Texas, for
          federal Justice Department oversight that makes it difficult for
          localities to change the location of a polling place or other small acts
          without first receiving permission from the federal government
          9. I’m afraid I’m not even sure what you’re talking about here.
          10.  Someone who wants to return to our originally envisioned nation with a small federal government doesn’t want to create more government agencies? Why do we NEED federal agencies for this? are States not capable?
          11. What if you were required to have a handcapped parking space for your house? For every house in the country? If I want to build a business with no handicapped parking spaces, that is my right. Just as it would be in their rights for the handicapped and anyone offended by my lack of handicapped parking spaces to go somewhere else, or to protest my choice.

          Are you seeing a trend here? Less government force to achieve the goals people want, more voluntary action? Nearly every one of Paul’s positions can be traced to a sincere desire to limit the use of government force to achieve whatever goal is covninient for the political majority at the time. But if you want a more authoritarian government and continued abuses by the police state, by all means, support another candidate. But just remember this: A government with the right to make your moral choices for you will make those choices based on the attitude of those voting.  You may be happy with the morality of the “majority” now, but that won’t last forever.

            1. It’s not a “moot” point, because the direct effects of his ideas would put the south back into “Mason-Dixon” territory (look it up if you are young). 

            2.Clowns that explain to me that since slavery (and discrimination) are not directly prohibited in the Constitution they are not “illegal,” are in my opinion fools.  The Pursuit of Happiness concept and the Bill of Rights are clear that we have the right to certain things, and no one has the right to deny them…like food at the general store, bought with legal tender.  Something that WAS denied blacks up until 1968 or so in much of the south.

            3.Vouchers are simply a way for rich people to screw poor people out of education.  Certain schools get all the money and all the bright students, all the others are junked.  Social responsibility means making it possible for ALL kids to get a great education, not to GIVE UP on the poor and just educate the smart ones with money and gifts. 

            4.Regardless of the general SNAFU that is a mixed economy, Paul’s ideas are completely crackpot, if for no other reason than they are so simple, they defy analysis. 

            5.”Let the racist assholes go out of business???”  Perhaps you missed human history…in that real world event, racism lasts for HUNDREDS OF YEARS if not addressed, and is INSTITIONALIZED, like in South Africa, India and the US, UNTIL MILLIONS OF ANGRY PEOPLE DEMAND JUSTICE AND MITIGATING LAWS.


            Ron Paul’s newsletter praises Bobby Fischer (specifically for his approach to the “Jewish Question.”), in the same issue, a bizarre, esoteric reference is made to an Ob/Gyn magazine, pretty much proving Paul wrote this stuff, since he is, in fact, an Ob/Gyn.  And, it is difficult to believe that Mr. Paul was the victim of some super complex conspiracy in which he did not know that someone else was pretending to be him, pretending to read Ob/Gyn mags, and making Paul look stupid for his Presidential campaign 25 years later.  In fact, at the time of publication, his main constituency were these racist hicks in his rural counties. 

            7.Please show me ONE picture of a democrat (or a Republican for that matter), standing and smiling with a known Nazi racist who publishes a magazine that is called anything along the lines of “Storm Front.”  In fact, Don Black considers Mr. Paul a friend, has corresponded with him for over 20 years, and was quoted recently saying he “understood” Paul rejecting 20 years of personal associations in order to run for President. 

            8.The Civil Rights Act DOES single out specific states, for obvious reasons.  A perfect example…two MONTHS ago, the Republicans passed draconian laws in South Carolina, making it pretty much certain that 1/5 of all blacks who voted last time would not vote this time.  South Carolina, along with Georgia, Kentucky, Texas and a few others, have such an ODIOUS record on voting rights with bunk like this, that a SPECIAL CLAUSE was added so that these states RACIST ASSHOLES could be over-ridden with the FLICK OF THE PEN by the Attorney General, which is what he just did.


            9. Paul has come out specifically against the LEGAL CONCEPT of public lands.  He is opposed to rules and agreements that have been active since the Magna Carta.  In Paul’s world, there are NO public parks, federal lands, protected lands, or “village greens.”  In Paul’s universe, EVERYTHING IS OWNED, and NOTHING is owned in common. 

            10.  Right now, each state employs almost as many workers as the Federal government.  It’s crazy wastage.  Not because we don’t need the employment, but because it’s so much overlap.  Which is more intelligent: to let 50 different entities deal with the national highways, taxing their own populations to fix it in their state (and if they can’t, so be it??), or a Federal system that fixes the roads with a national tax?

            11. My house is not a public venue which serves the population necessity items.  The Opera, for example, is paid for partially with State and Federal subsidies, yet it is a private company.  Should they not have to serve handicap people?  The grocery store sells food and sundries.  It is given a license and permits to build on a certain section of land (how this would work in Paul’s world is yet to be explained) It is not a “private” company anymore, because it is on PUBLIC land, land that is apportioned in a limited fashion, and it is serving the public’s needs, and it has, by competition, beat out ANOTHER grocery chain/store.  So, the citizens have A store to go to.  That store MUST have equal access, or the handicap people are not getting the full value from the LAND PERMIT TO SELL GOODS. Do you understand?  Handicap folks should not in a civilized society have to drive farther than their neighbors (if there is such a place to drive to).  This concept of “Private Business Is An Island” is nonsense.

          All politicians (ALL of them) have people who will not support them. I noticed that a lot of the news sources that you used to support your statements (listed below) are rags who also have omitted information or changed it for the benefit of anyone running against Ron Paul. I will start paying attention to your ideas when you can follow them up with credible sources who are squeaky clean and have not been accused of doing the same thing that CBS has done. My brother runs a group for media against Ron Paul which ALL of your sources have created news articles or resources that have made it into his group.  As a student of media myself, I can assure you that even people’s words are skewed, omitted and rearranged to fit the agenda of so-called news media organizations. While I have no doubt he might have said the words that you claim were captured, I do not know who edited them before they made it to public viewing. To trust the media these days is to accept a certain kind of death. The death of freedom of speech and the right to receive truthful information.

            that’s funny, because I have found You Tube commercials, produced by Paul, that say he wants to eliminate the department of commerce and I know he is opposed to all Affirmative Action.  No matter how you slice this, Paul and I disagree.  He may be “honorable,” although how you make a million dollars off a racist rag (which I read while traveling in Texas and New Mexico in the 80’s) and “not know” what’s in it is beyond me, but he’s wingnut crazy on so many issues in any case, it’s profound in and of itself.  Just the idea that someone that argues for State’s Rights could obtain a “progressive’s” vote is laughable, and shows not that Progressives support Paul, but that self-identified Progressives who do are actually total idiots, have no idea what a “Progressive” is, and don’t know what they are talking about, period. 

          • Amanda

            You are welcome to your opinion. We all are, as Americans. Isn’t it wonderful that Ron Paul is fighting for us to be able to share our opinions as Americans instead of having our liberties taken away by the socialist monsters who are in office as we speak? Wingnut crazy because he wants to return things back to the way the Constitution intended them? How dare a man dream and have ambitions and goals to make things great! NOOO! Not that! 

            As for your comment about “Progressives who do are actually total idiots,” I must say that once someone stoops to name-calling, they lose credibility in their statements. You have run out of intelligent words and have fallen to judging a group of people based on a personal opinion. Just because you say “Period” at the end of your statement, it does not mean that what you say is the final word. If you wish to continue debating, then go for it. However, I might suggest that if you wish to be taken seriously you stop the name calling and debate the issues rather than insulting people. Nothing makes a person lose attention and focus faster than someone insulting them. Good luck to you and your belief system. I hope it takes you far in life.

            lady, if someone says they are a “Progressive” and support Ron Paul, they are idiots.  It’s as simple as if someone says they are a Reaganite and supports John Kerry. It’s Idiotic.  No one can seriously claim to be a Progressive while supporting an anti-abortionist who argues against the Civil Rights Act with the States’ Rights argument.  To claim such a title is offensive to Progressives.  I’m not saying “progressives are idiots,” I’m saying someone that votes for Ron Paul WHILE claiming to be a Progressive is a moron.  It’s like a person that supports Ghandi saying they like Hitler, or someone that says they are for a Republic supporting a king with autocratic power: it’s an OXYMORON. 

          • Amanda

            I am willing to give credit where credit is due. I appreciate your knowledge of the Constitution. The things you stated in your first paragraph, you are correct. At the time the Constitution was written, the Founding Fathers were referring to the groups that you mentioned. However, I do believe that Ron Paul simply believes that individuals have the right to make their own decisions to have less interruption from an overbearing, centralized government. When we say “Constitutionalist,” we do not mean literally only referring to men. He wants the rights for ALL people guaranteed by the Constitution throughout the evolution of traditional roles within the United States. 

            To be quite honest, you cannot say the man has a lack of compassion. For God’s sake, he’s a doctor! He is also very well-known for treating women for free who had government healthcare instead of taking that healthcare. That doesn’t sound very much like a lack of compassion to me. If you are referring to the welfare system, then I guess you could say I have a lack of compassion, too. I am personally sick and tired of money being taken out of my very meager paycheck, when I work very hard for that money, to go pay for Mama and her 15 kids because she won’t get a job and her baby daddies are no longer in the picture. I am barely making ends meet as an educator, yet me not wanting money taken out of my paycheck as a handout for these people is a lack of compassion? So be it. I have a lack of compassion. 

            I see the point you are trying to make about Progressives, whether or not I agree with it. However, there are always going to be things wrong with every single candidate and not everyone is always going to agree with every single candidate. That’s just the way things are and always will be.

            Here’s my take on it.  I’m an organizer.  I’ve met a lot of people.  a LOT of people.  Dr. Paul’s ideas not only lack compassion in the immediate sense, i.e., the logical conclusion of many of his policies lead, in his own words to “abhorrent behavior” that will be “rectified by the system later,” but his intonations and mannerism CLEARLY set him off as someone who will be correct no matter what the issue.  I’ve met many like Dr. Paul…folks that seem very intelligent until you get to a real situation.  An example would be that of a very nice man you know from down the street.  He is always friendly.  He sometimes chides you on your hair.  For 20 years, you work down at the store.  One day, this nice old man takes over the store, calls you in and says, “I like you, but I don’t like your hair.  I know you have 20 years of seniority, but I don’t believe in pensions or worker protections, and, frankly, even though I know you’ve been a good worker, your hair disturbs me.  I’m sorry, bud, you are fired.”  That is Dr. Paul.  And he wants it to be that way for everyone, everywhere, who is not a manager.  He is loudly and determinedly against worker protection laws.  “Right to work” states is a canard, designed to lower wages so that companies will move to where the low wage workers live.  A race to the bottom.

            If you want to support Ron Paul, despite his miserliness, his lack of compassion and his hair-brained philosophies, you might not be an idiot, just misguided.  If, on the other hand, you claim to be a “leftist” or a “Progressive” and do so, you are profoundly stupid.  Because Paul is totally opposed to everything (minus his anti-militarism) that a Progressive stands for. 

          • Anonymous

            And the “way the congress intended it” was for there to be slaves, only 36 year old white males with property could vote, and like Paul thinks, senators were not elected, but appointed by governors (o yeah, that isn’t a can of corruption!)  Women have no voting rights, and slaves that flee to the north must be returned.  Is that what you mean?

        If Dems aren’t for non-intervention, why are they, like drones, cheering for Ron Paul, super conservative?  I personally have democratic friends that support this idiot.  Mainly because the ONLY thing they know about him is that he is anti-military adventurism.  If I were to say to them, “how about voting for someone that: 1.opposes abortion, 2.opposes all gun limits, 3.opposes environmental protection, 4.opposes anti-discrimination laws in the work place., etc. etc., they would say, “oh no,””  But this ant-expansionist line seems to trump all other things, including his blatant racism and rejection of concepts enshrined in the Magna Carta.

    The Ministry of Propaganda has decided the citizens no longer need be informed entirely candidate polling status. Rather, as witnessed in this “journalistic” piece, the ministry will instead tell the people who they should vote for and not who is doing well, etc.

    Get the picture, fellow Americans? The real puppet is trying to pull OUR strings! Stand up and vote with your dollars! Buy products from anyone who does not advertise on CBS, owned by Westinghouse, who has a grudge against Iran for their revolution in 1979 which forced them out of the oil business. Wiping out Iran makes sense to them. None to Ron Paul.

    Nice job on excluding Ron Paul from the entire segment. Journalistic integrity at its finest.

    Ron Paul was completely dismissed from this segment because RON PAUL IS “DANGEROUS”, and rightfully so.  Ron Paul is dangerous to the corrupt government-run machine currently in power, Ron Paul is dangerous to the Military Contractors who receive billions of our tax dollars thanks to wars, Ron Paul is dangerous to the biased Main Stream Media, and Ron Paul is dangerous to the Establishment and for those who do not agree with the U S Constitution. Shame on you Jan Crawford, for deleting a TOP TIER Presidential Veteran/Doctor who has fought for and served our great country. YOU and your disgusting media bullies are what makes Veteran Ron Paul so valuable to this country. You must not forget: Ron Paul secures a massive support group…and we could determine the end results. You owe Veteran Ron Paul a public apology.

      I’m American, an independent voter, and not fond of most of Dr. Paul’s policies as a candidate. I don’t know if I’d vote for him but I *want* to hear what he has to say.

      He’s got some good ideas (and some I think are crazy) that should be aired and brought into the public debate, even if we don’t all agree with him.  It’s healthy to discuss and debate public policy and the election cycle is the time to do it. CBS is robbing its viewers of different points of view.

    The REAL POLLS tell a much different story…This is hidden by the MSM,_2012

    These are the Ron Paul straw poll results the media won’t talk about:

    Paul has taken 1st Place in approximately 50% of all GOP Sponsored Polls So Far

    Out of the 58 polls taken all across the US so far Ron Paul has taken 1st place in 27 of them just a hair under 50% Seeing the big picture yet?

    These straw polls have always been the gauge of a candidates STRENGTH and SUPPORT historically in both parties but now with Ron Paul dominating them they are brushed off and not really mentioned in the Media and certainly not a total number of wins for each candidate because that would reveal that Paul has much more support all across the entire Nation than the media reports.

    1st – Pasco County, Florida – Pasco County GOP Straw Poll (12/13/11)
    1st – Cedar Valley, Iowa – Cedar Falls Tea Party Straw Poll (12/13/11)
    1st – Boise, Idaho – Idaho Republican Party Straw Poll (1/6/12)

    These are FEET ON THE GROUND polls with people sometimes paying over $100.00 to vote in not some internet poll that can be manipulated or taken down when the results have not gone the way they wanted it to go. Nor is it a Gallop or Harris or some other poll paid for with questions craftily designed to get the desired results.

    We need to launch a write-in campaign to get Jon Stewart to cover this again.  And why wouldn’t he?  The first time he did it it was the most viewed segment of the year for him.

    I agree with your story, however, you have a factual error. In that particular poll, Mitt was at 43%, as you stated, but Ron Paul was at 14%, not 24%. That information was from a different poll.

    I actually like seeing this now, compared to four years ago. Back then, most people thought Dr. Paul supporters were kooks for talking about the exclusion practices of the Corporate Legacy Media. Today, look at all the attention this gets, and how many people wake up because of it. Having pulled the cable out years ago, I now get my news via Russia Today (especially LOVE Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert!), Alex Jones’ Infowars, and sites like Lew Rockwell dot com. I don’t miss anything these stations have to offer and I’m a lot healthier.

    Ron Paul 2012!

    Everyone needs to tell their family, friends, and people they meet that Ron Paul NEEDS to be president for the sake of our freedoms and the continued protection and enforcement of our great Constitution!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CBS. Do your job. Inform citizens. Do not try and make the decision for us. Report fairly. America can see right through you.

      Fox News set the legal precedent that media has the right to lie to the public.

      “On February 14, a Florida Appeals court ruled there
      is absolutely nothing illegal about lying, concealing
      or distorting information by a major press
      organization. The court reversed the $425,000 jury
      verdict in favor of journalist Jane Akre who charged
      she was pressured by Fox Television management and
      lawyers to air what she knew and documented to be
      false information. The ruling basically declares it
      is technically not against any law, rule, or
      regulation to deliberately lie or distort the news on
      a television broadcast.

       In case you missed it, here’s the court case covered:

    This story isn’t missing someone by chance, is ti?  Perhaps a candidate who believes that America should be ruled by the Constitution and that the rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights should be preserved?

    Everyone at the Romney rally looks like they’re not really sure why they’re there.

  • Eric Austin

    I’m not even sure that is legal.

  • E Mazur

    It’s bad enough that they didn’t show him as second place in the NH, but it’s equally bad, if not worse, that they didn’t even show Ron Paul’s impressive 3rd place finish in Iowa – only 3.2% behind first place.  CBS has been pulling this crap for a long time, and it’s gotten REALLY bad this week.  I have thorough evidence of their bias:
    CBS News Pimping
    the Parliament of Whores (and Ignoring Ron Paul)

    • Fred

      everyone thinks Ron P got third place in Iowa…

      IOWA WAS A 3 WAY TIE. When running for president only 1 thing counts: Delegates.

      It doesnt matter if you lose the popular vote, as long as you snag the delegates youre on your way to the white house. Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, And Mitt Romney EACH got 6 delegates out of the 25!

    (See B. S.)  LOL They are sooooo afraid of ‘Uncle Ron’!     BIASED LOSERS! Does anybody out there think Iowa Caucuses were rigged?

  • Romanaugusto

    fox this morning had gingrich badmouthing romney, then after the segment they had a ad paid by romney. that means that the news media when they misrepresent paul they expect the paul campaign to buy advertising time slots to counteract their impartiality. simple business strategy, but very bad journalism.

  • Rubberduck

    They need to change their “eye” logo to one depicting and ostrich with its head in the sand… 

  • P. Silver


    Their equation for ” SUCCESS”   $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$   !

    Your freedom and Constitutional rights will be going “up in smoke” literally

    and figuratively, if you actually put any credence in what these blowhards say!

    Ron Paul  2012  !

  • jb111

    I think Ron Paul’s support would be at least double if his views got fair coverage.  This (and many other examples like 89 seconds) should show all Americans we are far down the socio-crony capitalist road.  Instilling fear and doubt is what this new media is about.  Turn off your tv, buy books and use the Internet.

  • G Williams

    Could you have made it anymore blatantly obvious that you ignored Ron Paul who is at 24%. Main stream news is going the way of something you would watch in North Korea, only with better graphics. Quit treating Americans like sheep. So completely disgusted!

    Man, that’s some Criminal Bull Sh*t CBS…

  • Ed Demelo

    Gee, do you think maybe it’s because the military industrial complex owns CBS?

    welcome to CBS, we put the BS in the news

    • Alreadyontheredlist

      yes, I  C  BS everynight it comes on (and then GETS TURNED OFF ), I’ll stick with local news and get my national/world info from the only meaningful source, the internet.

  • tanks2bb _

    I recall members of the media bragging at how they beat Ron Paul’s internet support in 08, and just like then I’m amazed at how many people are mesmerized  by their anti liberty propaganda..

  • John H

    CBS is owned by Westinghouse.  NBC owns G.E.  Both make turbines for the military industrial complex.  Both love making blood money off endless wars.

    Welcome to the internet CBS

    Does the CIA reward you guys for manipulating coverage or do y’all just do it for ideology’s sake?

    Fuck CBS.

  • Maryann

    Before the Iowa caucases, the media said it would dismiss Ron Paul and it has and is doing just that.  Ron Paul scares them because the media along with the elitists want a One World Order and Ron Paul would stand in their way.

  • Amazing

    Amazing that Ron Paul got 21% of the vote in Iowa with this type of coverage or lack thereof

  • CBS = Can’t Be Serious

    This is way too obvious are they trying to get blowback?

    CBS = Pravda

    Unreal, let them keep doing this and their credibility will continue to drop!
