The Sunday morning news show, “Face the Nation,” advertised an interview with Ron Paul. Paul is in a statistical tie in Iowa with Cain, Gingrich, and Romney. So, he is news.
But he was not news enough. Halfway through the interview, Bob Schieffer cut him off. You can hear Paul try to say something, but smiling Bob moved on.
They were both born in the middle if the New Deal. Schieffer was born in 1937. Paul was born in 1935. Schieffer bought into the New Deal’s program in this youth. Paul rejected it. Neither of them has changed.
Ron Paul is a big problem for the mainstream media. His appeal is obvious. Republican voters who are concerned about the economy are his constituents. He has been warning about this for over 35 years. Then, in the autumn of 2007, he said the crisis was imminent. The recession began in December 2007.
The mainstream media despise his views. They do not want to give him air time. On this occasion, they gave him some, but then he was cut off.
The mainstream media giveth, and the mainstream media taketh away. Cursed be the name of the mainstream media.
Watch the video. You will see what I mean.
