Ron Paul Ignores the Media

First Ron Paul complains that the media is ignoring him, then he ignores the media. While his rivals were blitzing cable TV this week, Paul gave only one interview: to Bloomberg TV last night. The sudden drop-off came after a series of interviews where CNN and Fox reporters asked him about racist statements in his newsletters. On the trail, reporters complain Paul hasn't been taking questions. Nevertheless, Paul has continued to blast the mainstream media, getting cheers from his audience on Thursday when he said the media didn't cover his criticism of the Defense Authorization Act.
