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.

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
