Today, Sean Hannity sggested Ron Paul has the number of the beast. This rallied many in the main stream media, i.e FOX, CNN and MSNBC, to pick up the story and run with it. Many newscasts featured a picture of Paul with horns, tail and a fiery trident.
The number of the beast is the most recent excuse in a long line of excuses for the Main Stream Media basically ignoring Ron Paul as a candidate for president. He is the 6th man on the ticket, he was only given 6 minutes of face time on the latest debate, and his given name, Ronald, has 6 letters. If any of these reasons are too shaky for you, consider that after the Tea Party money bomb, Paul was dubbed the 6 million dollar man. Or the most recent addition, gambling odds now have him at 6:1 versus Romney.
Ron Paul's supporters responded by saying, "Who are they kidding, Hillary has that number pegged." Ron Paul's campaign wouldn't even dignify the assertion with a response.
When asked about the blatant non-coverage of Paul, Ernest Dumass of the MSM United, previously named Socialists United, said, "In areas of such importance, we, the media, prefer to live by the old motto 'See no Ron Paul, hear no Ron Paul, speak no Ron Paul.' I mean evil, sorry. Unless, of course, the news of Paul will detract from his support. We take seriously our role to control the electorate."
