To the editor:
I would like to bring up the issue of media bias while covering the GOP race for the presidential candidate. Nearly every article that I have read in the media does not do fair justice to the covering of all candidates. The media should not bias people's opinions by telling them who can or cannot win.
For example, Romney's company, Bain Capital, owns the media network Clear Channel which owns the largest number of radio stations in America. Many influential Republican talking heads work under this company. They do not make this point apparent when discussing potential candidates.
Another issue with the media is the large marginalization of Ron Paul. Ron Paul is virtually ignored in the debates and especially in their analysis of the debates. His three biggest supporters are the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, and the Marines. Many people in the media refer to him as an isolationist but this is simply not true. Rather he is a non-interventionist who believes in war when it is necessary, for a just cause, and declared legally. He is the only of the remaining candidates who served in the military and knows what strain war can be on the economy and the morale of our country. He is a true statesman who has never voted against his beliefs for what the audience wants to hear. He is a staunch defender of liberty and desires to bring all of our troops home to secure the borders in this country. He has a true plan to cut $1 trillion in spending during his first year in office.
Ron Paul is widely respected with monetary experts and accurately predicted the events of the 2000s such as the housing bubble and tension in the Middle East in 2002. As president he plans to take a salary of $39,000 to stand for the average American and he, along with his son, are the only people in Congress to return their pensions and unused money. He has a plan to fix the entitlement system which includes not excluding seniors from their current benefits.
Ron Paul has worldwide support and it is about time that he receives fair and equal coverage in the media so that people are able to make a decision based on facts. I urge everyone to educate themselves on what the candidates truly stand for and stand up for the one who will stand up for you.
