Lawmaker cites media arrogance for lack of coverage of Ron Paul ron paul 2012 0513

A Republican congressman is blaming media “arrogance” for the paltry coverage of Rep. Ron Paul’s (R-Texas) second-place finish in the Iowa Straw Poll.

Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), who has endorsed Paul, told the Hill that “fair-minded people don’t know why Ron Paul is not given adequate press.” He pointed the finger at the “arrogance of certain people in the media who don’t think he can win.”

Jones said he was especially disappointed in the conservative-leaning press.

Despite finishing a close second behind Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) in the straw poll, Paul attracted little attention from the media. Over the past week, cable-news shows and print outlets have primarily focused on Bachmann, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R).

The perceived snub of Paul was the topic of a segment on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” The clip was linked on the influential Drudge Report website.
