The willful manipulation of the election process by media is the first reason to oppose campaign finance laws. Those laws always exempt news media and, if we want to continue to have free speech protected by the First Amendment, they should exempt media. But that gives an immense advantage to the working press to contol access to communication with the general public.
The candidates campaigns are financially limited by law. The public’s ability to support candidates is financially limited by law. The liberal media are not. They use that huge advantage over everyone else in America to move our nation further and further left: toward Government Control and away from Freedom in virtually every sphere of life.

It is a known fact that people only vote for candidates they perceive as “having a chance to win.” For at least half a century Big Liberal Media has distorted American elections by almost completely controlling that perception, by simply dictating who is “viable” and refusing to cover the campaigns of candidates they don’t like, by distorting coverage of those candidates, if they cover them at all. They ignored and marginalized Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter. They have vilified, slandered, and done their best to marginalize the candidacies of Fred Thompson and Ron Paul.
It is time for the Conservatives to consistently confront the liberal Media, to go to war.
“Things have got to change my friends. You’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open your window, stick your head out and yell, ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’” ~ Howard Beale “Network” 1976
