We've documented how much Newsmax columnist Doug Wead has spent touting the presidential prospects of Ron Paul. Even as Paul's electoral chances dwindle, Wead is still at it.
In his March 13 column, Wead complains that "Ron Paul supporters are used to getting shortchanged by the media." He goes on to fawningly speculate why:
There are reasons why the pundits and the mainstream media exclude Paul. He is taking on the establishment. He is seeking to reform the monetary system, including changes that would make the Federal Reserve more transparent.
He wants us all to know how much money they are "printing" and to whom it is given.
Paul supporters come via the internet. That's why so many are young. They don't watch television news. They do their own research.
Paul doesn't convert them. The facts do. They simply match up the facts to the candidates. Many are even shocked to find that the old man has it right.
A Ron Paul presidency may be a lost cause at this point, but Wead is still enthusiastically plugging away.
