Please Ask Your Local News Media to Cover "Paul Got 5 States and Earned Speech Slot" StorySubmitted by James_Madison_Lives on Tue, 08/07/2012 - 21:16
One thing still great about our country is the power of local media to choose it's own narrative. Mostly, out of sheer laziness, it will follow the national script, but not always. Local editors can be a feisty and independent bunch, working for small and medium size newspapers, local TV news and radio, and other organs not directly managed by the centralized national news network and newspaper giants.
Many editors might scratch their heads at the information presented in the media analysis "Media Says Ron Paul Wins Five States, Qualifying for Nomination. Romney Breaks Rules to Deny Speaking Slot." They might even decide to write an editorial challenging the official narrative.
Better yet, your local paper editor is probably someone you can get on the phone easily, to ask him/her to do just that, with the full documentation handy in this article. The national media is forced to revise only when too many directly conflicting narratives start popping up, and people start checking the facts, costing them credibility and circulation.
The local media and the national are two different animals. But put together, the locals still buy an awful lot of ink.
