Media Caught Lying, Version2


Keith, please see the graph below that illustrates what the video was trying to say, as I think you may have misunderstood the message. As you can see in the search volume, Ron Paul is leading the way as they all go up on volume together. But for that same time period, as his search popularity goes up along with the others, the NEWS REFERENCE VOLUME clearly indicates a decline in news coverage, while the others get plenty. This is what Mr. Day was referring to. If his popularity goes up above all others, then one would think the media would catch on that and would be reflected in the matrix. But it isnt. That leaves 2 suggestions…

1) The media is intentionally ignoring Dr. Paul.

2) The media is out of touch with the american people so much so that they cant see whats right in front of them.

I believe its a little from column A, and a little from Column B.

    I find it interesting that when this fellow does the Google Trends comparison, he doesn’t do all four at once. If he did, it would reveal that Ron Paul and Hillary Clinton are relatively close in search term volume with John McCain running a tight second. In fact, until 2008, both John McCain and Hillary Clinton were searched for at a higher rate than Ron Paul. My point isn’t neccessarily that the gentleman here is wrong, just that I’m curious about how his evidence proves his point. Interesting enough, if you refine down to a 12-month measurement, the search term trending intersected for the top 3 candidates arouind January 30/February 1st. I wonder what happened on that day…

    I think I must have misspelled Barack’s name the first time to get the distorted results… the only explanation I can think of.
