    Now after seeing that he has so many first,second, and thrid place straw poll wins let me ask you this. Why is it that Dr. Ron Paul never gets any coverage on KY3 and other mass media outlets??? He wins on a shoe string budget, but KY3 won't even give him the time of day, why is that? In my opinion any reporter worth his salt would be all over this story but yet you and your reporters remain astonishling quiet about it. Why? The mass media seems to be so scared to say anyting about Dr. Ron Paul. Does NBC block you from talking about him? It seems very funny that someone that is getting so many voters behind him, but yet so little coverage from the mass media.



    A VERY disenheartened viewer;


    This is the BS responce that I got back.

    Dear Mr. XXXXXXX,

    Thank you for taking the time to inquire on our coverage of Dr. Ron Paul. To be honest, I’m not sure of the amount of coverage that we have given to any of the top 10 GOP candidates. Dave Catanese, our political reporter could better answer that question and I’ll forward your note to him. I’m sure he will respond as soon as he has a chance. I can tell you that we take no direction from our network as our news decisions are solely the result of our local staff.

    Thanks again!

    I haven't heard back from the political reporter as of yet. But as least they know someone is watching and taking notes. I would encourage all of you to e-mail your local sations as well. We need to hit these guy on every front that we can, and bust their chops as often as possible.

    P.S. If anyone wants to use what I have written go for it.[winkthumb]

    This really should be posted on FreeRepublic.com; the so-called republicans there are always bashing Dr. Paul.
