Stop the media blackout of Ron Paul

      Smyrna, TN

Please sign this petition to tell the the sponsors of MSNBC, Fox News and CNN News to stop the media blackout on Ron Paul. Please contact the sponsors as well, it is not enough to just sign a petition, you have to let the sponsors know that you are devoted to this cause. 

I respect anybody's choice for president, but this should not be ok under any circumstances. The blackout is blatant and the media news coverage is biased and distorted and that should not be tolerated. 


According to The Public Interest Standard in Television Broadcasting, we, the people, can be active and intelligent participants in our democracy with sufficient civic programming before elections, and that's not happening, not to mention it's a direct violation of our civil rights, specifically, "Civil and political rights are a class of rights that protect individuals' freedom from unwarranted infringement by governments and private organizations, and ensure one's ability to participate in the civil and political life of the state without discrimination or repression".

Additionally, there seems to be a direct violation of US Code - Section 315 Candidates for public office: Equal opportunities requirement; censorship prohibition; allowance of station use; news appearances exception; public interest; public issues discussion opportunities If any licensee shall permit any person who is a legally qualified candidate for any public office to use a broadcasting station, he shall afford equal opportunities to all other such candidates for that office in the use of such broadcasting station.

The media should not lead the people, the people should lead the media.

Media blackout: refers to the censorship of news related to a certain topic, for any reason.

The Following is What is Different and Better About Ron Paul Over All Others:

He has never taken a government junket.
 
He does not participate in the lucrative Congressional Pension Program.
 
He returns a portion of his annual Congressional Office Budget every year.
 
He has never voted to raise taxes.
 
He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
 
He voted no to the bankster bailout.
 
He voted no to raising the debt ceiling and warned us against the “Super Congress” part of the legislation that resembles bothan “ Enabling Act” and a “Politburo".
 
He has never voted to restrict gun ownership.
 
He has never voted to raise Congressional Pay.
 
He never voted to increase Executive Branch Power.
 
He will Reinstate The Constitution and Save The Republic
 
He will END the unconstitutional FED.
 
He will phase out the unconstitutional IRS beginning immediately
 
He will secure the borders
 
He will limit Big Government in your private affairs
 
He will stop Illegal immigration and no amnesty
 
He voted against regulating the Internet
 
He was a flight surgeon during Vietnam.
 
Ron Paul’s popularity is so high among U.S. service members that the Texas Congressman’s presidential campaign has received more money from U.S. soldiers than any other candidate in the 2012 presidential race. http://www.thestatecolumn.com/
 
He voted against the Iraq War and warned us against going forward with an undeclared war.“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it´s realized that our liberty and wealth are in Jeopardy” July 10th, 2003
 
He voted against the unconstitutional and un-patriotic misnamed so called “Patriot Act”
 
He supports a non-interventionist foreign policy yet a strong defense
 
He will end the inflation tax
 
He is a true Constitutional Conservative
  
Because no one else can be trusted to say what he means and do what he says like Ron Paul does.

Ron Paul for President 2012

      When going to the sponsors we are letting them know that we will no longer purchase their products. THAT'S IMPERATIVE. PLEASE go one more step and contact these sponsors, then when I contact them they will know that I don't just have a bunch of names, I have people devoted to a cause, it's not fair. Actions always speak louder than words. PLEASE send them a nice email.
