I'm not going to whitewash this, grumble about how I use to hold such respect for our nation's media [but I did] or how it's only a few of them [it's not]...No, from what I'm reading and understanding, about 80% of the Main Stream Media [MSM], are bought and paid for by special interest groups, political parties and the US Federal Government. They are plainly trying to control and dictate American Elections by their own admittance and via their actions. I've written about this subject before here and here.
Looking back over the past few weeks, there are a few displays of dishonor and lack of integrity by the MSM that should never be forgotten in MSM history.

[Branstad's Act of Sabotage An Outrageous Attempt to Tamper With Election Process by: Paul Watson]
Iowa Governor Terry Branstad’s rhetorical act of sabotage against his own state’s Republican primary, with his insistence that a potential Ron Paul victory should be ignored, represents an outrageous attempt to tamper with the election process.[end of excerpt]
As we reported earlier, Branstad told Politico that a Paul victory in the primary should be dismissed, urging Republicans to ignore the legitimacy of the result if the Texan Congressman comes out on top, which recent polls suggest he has a very good chance of doing. Politico adds that many fear “such a result….would do irreparable harm to the future role of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.”
“People are going to look at who comes in second and who comes in third,” said Branstad, adding, ““If [Mitt] Romney comes in a strong second, it definitely helps him going into New Hampshire and the other states,” comments taken to mean that Republicans should “ignore” Ron Paul, according to Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns.
If Branstad is rooting for anyone, it’s clearly Mitt Romney. Prominent Romney supporters are even trying to groom Branstad into becoming a candidate for Vice President under a Romney administration.
“1996 GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole broached the idea of Branstad as No. 2 on the ticket. Dole reportedly called Branstad this weekend to let him know he would be endorsing Mitt Romney for president, and said he’d like to recommend Iowa’s governor as a possible running mate,” reports USA Today.
Branstad downplayed his interest in the role, but said he was “flattered” to be considered.

CBS Reporter Blatantly Excludes Ron Paul From Coverage by: Steve Watson]
Going into New Hampshire and ahead of two debates this weekend, Paul was polling in strong second, as he has been for some time. However, That did not stop CBS political correspondent Jan Crawford from showing graphics and talking about recent polling, without even mentioning Paul’s numbers or even that he was involved in the race at all.[End of Excerpt]
Crawford even used a graphic referencing a Suffolk University Poll of New Hampshire voters, omitting Paul’s numbers, even though he came second, and was the only candidate other than Mitt Romney to poll in double figures.

[CNN'S Dana Bash "Worried" About Ron Paul's Success by: Kurt Nimmo and Paul Watson]
On January 2, Dana Bash told her husband, CNN anchor John King, that is she “worried” about Ron Paul’s success today in New Hampshire.[End of Excerpt]
She said it concerns her and establishment Republicans that he will continue to push on with his campaign through the spring and summer right up to the election.
Note that it is Bash who has been tasked with following Ron Paul around on behalf of CNN. Paul’s campaign yesterday cut off an interview with her after she tried to blame Paul for the media swarm in a New Hampshire restaurant that forced Paul to cut short a meet and greet, a fracas that was wholly a creation of the media itself.
If this is honest, non biased, reporting, I'd hate to see what IS.
Before the whole world, their contempt and tampering with American Politics is sticking out like a sore thumb.
Why do they do this? Because of their party affiliations. They want Americans to believe that if you vote for a libertarian, 3rd party, or for any party other than that of the Democrat or Republican Party - that they can't win. ha! After many decades of that type *brainwashing* it just might be true...
I've even had people tell me that I HAVE to vote Republican or Democratic...otherwise, I'm throwing my vote away......
That is a lie - A damn lie.
My challenge is for anyone to show me a Federal or State [Georgia] law that says I can only vote Dem or Repub - and for no other candidate/party, even though they be a legit candidate/party on the ballet.
Show me the law or shut up the nonsense/lies.
It is my legal right to vote my conscience...and that I will do.
Ron Paul may not go on to win the GOP - but his platform, the very idea of freedom and liberty is awakening the American people - and is our future.
America, indeed the world, is now witnessing the downfall of American Media as well as the death throes of the Republican and Democratic Parties...Good riddance. It can't come soon enough.
