Rand Paul Hates the Media | April 10, 2015

In case you were wondering about the narrative that would be used for presidential candidate Rand Paul, it’s that he is hostile to reporters (especially women!) and doesn’t want to answer difficult questions. I find this a good sign. Paul was a guy who was so desperate to talk about his beliefs he went on Rachel Maddow’s show once. That debacle was a story for weeks. It’s fine that he believes in things, but the left-wing media doesn’t want to discuss issues. There is one worldview for them and their job is to promote it. Conservatives (and for the most part, that’s what Paul is) must be denigrated to discourage any unexpected thinking by TV viewers.

This is the way it has to be, since the media tends to take sides. Rand Paul can go on a number of Fox News programs to explain his libertarian beliefs to a more Republican audience. By going there, he will have an audience bigger than all other cable news put together and less filtered than on any of the networks. While he can’t embargo ABC, NBC, CBS, et al, Paul doesn’t have to take their crap. That’s what sucks for liberals about capitalism. There are other games in town.

    And they see any alternative view as competition: Hence the “liberal’s rigidity re: freedom of speech. They really would like to legislate against thought crime. Common core will aim .to eliminate dissent.
