Journalistic Hubris

Sometimes I wonder how people even keep their jobs when they are supposedly journalists reporting on events, but they act like this guy. Kevin Drum is his name, and I'd have to say he is exactly what's wrong with the Mainstream Media these days. Of course I'm frustrated first hand by his comments about Ron Paul, but he's also been extremely anti-conversational about other candidates as well.

This country needs MORE dialog, not less. People need to throw off the bonds that tie them down. Why do people accept this forced feeding from the TV? Do people really just accept whatever major networks say because they are.. major? CBS has consistently acted as though Ron Paul doesn't exist. Katie Couric when dumbfounded in her report about Ron Paul's money bomb yesterday acted like no-one should know who Ron Paul is, stating that he's showed up at zero percent in a recent poll, and even fewer should care. I mean how dare a Presidential Candidate that is not anointed by the media earn this much money from small donors? In another video they said that 5 candidates could win the nomination for the Republican party, listing Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Fred Thompson, and Mike Huckabee.

I must reiterate. Ron Paul has an exciting movement behind him. Do yourself a favor and see if you don't get excited after watching him speak. Try out his interview @Google. If you have an attention span that can't handle the 65 minute interview, try out these shorter videos. OK, if you have NO attention span whatsoever, would you at least watch a TV ad?
