Media Caught Red-Handed Manipulating Presidential Race

Who’s picking your President?

By Jesse Cannone

In a matter of months, American voters will be heading to the polls to choose a candidate to represent them in next year’s Presidential election.

But if certain members of the media have their way, the field of Presidential hopefuls will be limited strictly to their own hand-selected “top tier candidates.”

In other words, news reporters aren’t so neutral after all. Some have a “liberal spin” and others have a “conservative spin”… but candidates who don’t fit either mold… well… they simply disappear from coverage.

If you think that’s just a bunch of conspiracy theory malarkey, then you’ve really got to see the video below. The first time I saw it I was both shocked and laughing hysterically at the same time.

I mean, we often hear about how the media is biased. But to catch them blatantly in the very act? That’s the humorous result of a recent segment by Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart:

Yes, I get it that some people believe politics and business don’t mix. I’ve been criticized before just for having a Ron Paul sign hanging from my desk in the background of a video.

Now that video wasn’t intentionally a political statement. I just happened to shoot an office stretch video in my personal office where the sign was hanging, prompting some readers to tell me in the comments that I “offended” them.

Guess I’m about to really offend them now because just in case there’s any confusion let me set the record straight once and for all…

I support Ron Paul for President of the United States.

Why does this statement belong on a blog about natural ways to heal your back pain? Because personal liberty is inextricably linked with the ability to make personal choices about your healthcare and every other aspect of your life.

And because I know no other candidate matches Congressman Paul’s strong history of championing personal liberty and consistent voting record to match his Constitutionally-limited view of government as our country’s founders intended.

You may disagree. That’s your right. But before you settle on a candidate, let me ask you this…

Are you letting the media pick your next President for you? Are you digging a little deeper to discover what these media-selected candidates really stand for? And whose pocket they’re in?

Or are you just blindly following the talking heads on TV?

    I support Ron Paul also because he does have a consistent track record of supporting personal liberty as well as economic freedom for entities. He is not charismatic so what you see is what you get. Ron Paul’s biggest disadvantage may be his age. On Trader blogs, which I also subscribe, and on Facebook are lots of comments of the type “he is too old to know what the issues are”. To me that is just as bad as people saying Barack Obama is a Muslim because his middle name is Hussein. Of course, with our youth oriented culture, nobody will criticize those who call Ron Paul a clueless oldie who belongs in a nursing home.

    You are correct though in implying people don’t think for themselves when choosing their leaders. Thanks for sticking your neck out and saying what needs to be said.

    Thanks Eileen for chiming in 🙂

    I respect your willingness to openly support a candidate regardless of any potential effect on your business… many would not do this… I’m a conservative and Ron Paul is on my radar screen…

    I agree that too many people don’t “dig” for the truth, they simply accept the mainstream medias biased reporting… sorry to say these folks are more concerned with reality TV than protecting their personal freedoms… until they are gone!

    Democracy relies on an informed public. If we rely on the press, we are fed only the news the press wants us to see. Fair, impartial reporting is a thing of the past. The press seeks to guide public opinion not merely by what it publishes, but mainly by what it decides not to report.

  5. Jesse Cannone says:

    Thanks all for posting your support and feedback… I appreciate it.

    I am “offended” by those people who were offended by your Ron Paul sign. So they need to change and quit offending me.

    I get so tired of being told to be tolerant by others who are not tolerant of my beliefs.

    As for this country being a democracy, it was founded as a constitutional republic. Remember the pledge of allegiance? “to the REPUBLIC for which it stands”. A democracy is 51% deceiding what they are going to do to the other 49%. Or in a more picturesq form, two wolves and a sheep voting on what is for lunch. It might be a democracy now, and that is part of our problem.

    Good for you sticking to what you believe and not being “Politically Correct”.

    That’s great to admire and support a certain candidate.
    Ron Paul has an interesting point of view…but not the ONLY point of view.

    He’ll never become president…but some of his opinions and perspectives should be incorporated into how the country is run. Forget the idea of the country returning to a purely “constitutionally” run government…never gonna happen…too far gone!!

    Jon Stewart, as always, is brilliant with his satire … he’ll have plenty of source material moving forward to the 2012 elections and beyond ….thanks for the video..

    I was struck by Jenny’s comment, “Forget the idea of the country returning to a purely “constitutionally” run government…never gonna happen…too far gone!!”

    At least Jenny is more honest than most politicians who pretend they are following the Constitution while continuing to violate it. But to give up on wanting to have a constitutionally run government is to say we don’t have a right to expect our government to operate under the rule of law. The Constitution is supposed to contain the governing principles by which our leaders are constrained. When politicians disobey it, they are usurping power and becoming tyrants. They will continue to do this only if we, the people, let them.

    We can take a step in the right direction by supporting the one honest politician in the bunch — Ron Paul.

    Thanks again all for the comments… keep em coming 🙂

    Ron Paul has some “nice” ideas…but not Presidential material…
    Enjoy his run (and spending your/our money on his campaign)
