Complete YouTube Video of My Aug 28 Talk about Ron Paul and Mass Media, at the Village Pourhouse in NYC

My complete talk about Ron Paul at the Village Pourhouse on August 28th follows. The venue was the back room of a boisterous drinking house ... it's good to think that our Founding Fathers took part in many a meeting in a similar room, as they hammered out the Constitution and Bill of Rights, which are under attack today, which Ron Paul supports, and which is the subject of much of my talk...


1. Introduction ... unconstitutional wars and attacks on the First Amendment, prior to 2007...


2. Discussion of four instances of ABC's misreporting, distorting, and undermining of Ron Paul's campaign for the Presidency... newspapers did better than broadcasters ... Fox not as bad as ABC...


3. Two remedies for mass media misreporting ... rational public discourse (as per Milton and Jefferson) ... increasing numbers of people speaking the truth ... beginning of q & a ... why did Internet fail for Howard Dean in 2004 ... infancy of social media in 2004 ... mass media suffer from trampling of 1st Amendment...


4. q & a continues ... "fairness doctrine" and attempt to muzzle right-wing radio is unconstitutional ... Hillary Clinton and 1st Amendment ... the lesson of Socrates ... conclusion
