Scientific Study Confirms Ron Paul Being Given LEAST Face Time In D...

Even less than Santorum, Huntsman, Gingrich

Steve Watson
October 14, 2011

Despite being consistently ranked in the top three in GOP presidential candidate preference polls, Ron Paul has been given the least time to speak OUT OF ALL THE CANDIDATES at the debates that have taken place thus far.

Confirmation of this fact comes in the form of a study from the University of Minnesota, published to the Smart Politics blog.

The study has tallied the total face time that candidates were afforded during the last three debates. The results speak for themselves.

TPM took these numbers and displayed them visually below:

Ron Paul has received just 18 minutes and 47 seconds of time, less than any other candidate, and less than half the time that Mitt Romney has been allowed.

Indeed, Romney has racked up a total of 41 minutes and 9 seconds of speaking time over the debates, close to seven minutes more than the next closest candidate, Rick Perry who has received 34 minutes, 12 seconds.

The Study notes that during Tuesday’s debate, Romney received a full quarter of the speaking time, meaning he had almost double the time of all the other candidates and approaching three times the amount Ron Paul was given.

Despite being placed third in a Harvard University Institute of Politics and New Hampshire Institute of Politics poll prior to the Washington Post/Bloomberg debate, Ron Paul received just 26 and 21 seconds more speaking time than Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum respectively.

Even when he is not speaking, it seems Romney is the focus of the attention, on Tuesday Romney was afforded:

· 194 percent more camera time than Rick Santorum
· 190 percent more than Jon Huntsman
· 171 percent more than Ron Paul
· 157 percent more than Newt Gingrich
· 103 percent more than Michele Bachmann
· 100 percent more than Herman Cain
· 77 percent more than Rick Perry

The gross inequality displayed here will only serve to confirm assertions that the mainstream media is engaged in a conspiracy to sideline, ignore and discredit Paul’s campaign.

Even the authors of the study at the University of Minnesota question the amount of time Paul is getting. They note:

“The fact that Congressman Paul has received less than half the amount of speaking time as Romney (and less than any other candidate) is curious considering the libertarian firebrand has run third or fourth in most polls throughout the last several months.”

The establishment denigrates Paul’s campaign not because they think he can’t win, but because they’re scared he could win. That’s why they’ve made it their job to try and derail his momentum at every turn. It’s their job to manipulate the American public into thinking they’re wasting their vote if they support Paul because he has no chance of winning, when the opposite is true, he has every chance of winning, if only he was given an equal platform with the other candidates.

The Paul campaign today released another ad, this time titled simply “Life”. In a moving and personal account, Dr Paul Explains why he opposes abortion, and recounts an experience of watching an abortion firsthand.

The spot will air next week in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

I can`t understand why we don`t see signs Everywhere! that depict just how we feel about the "MSM".

We know they will destroy their own children for a pay check,and we must let them know that we know what they are made of...Everywhere they go in public,and in the halls.
