Study Confirms Ron Paul Blacked Out by Media

Study Confirms Ron Paul Blacked Out by Media:

It has oft been a bone of contention by Ron Paul supporters nationwide that he has been either ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream media.

Liberal comedian Jon Stewart devoted an entire montage to humorously and satirically underscoring the media’s deliberate — and at times blatant — efforts to ignore Paul’s top-tier status.

Now a recent study by the highly respected Pew Research Center proves that Paul has indeed been blacked out by the mainstream media. explains that the study “combines traditional media research methods with computer algorithms to track the level and tone of coverage of candidates for president.”

Pew compiled a list of 52 mainstream news sources, ranging from newspapers to television, and discovered that Paul has received significantly less media coverage than all of the other candidates — including Tim Pawlenty, who dropped out of the race as a result of his lack of adequate progress, and Jon Huntsman, who has one of the lowest approval ratings of all the GOP presidential contenders.
