Comments on: Perry, Bachmann shine star power at Iowa dinner http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2011/08/14/perry-bachmann-shine-star-power-at-iowa-dinner/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Kelsbells http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2011/08/14/perry-bachmann-shine-star-power-at-iowa-dinner/comment-page-1/#comment-417600 Wed, 17 Aug 2011 15:41:22 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=35786#comment-417600 I agree with the previous poster. I’m not a fan of the tea party, but if you want to report facts instead of spin, these faux tea partiers (Bachmann, Perry, et al) have usurped Ron Paul’s message, one that he has been making for years.
Where’s the reporting on Buddy Roemer, Gary Johnson, Jon Huntsman, or any of the other candidates? When Jon Huntsman gets mentioned, it’s always in conjunction with Mitt Romney. And don’t get me started on the Sarah Palin/Michele Bachmann comparisons.
There really is a hunger out here for smart reporting. We can catch all the scoop on “Bachmann’s Birthday Blunder” on TMZ or other reality show programs/newscasts. I hold Reuters to a higher standard.

Don’t buy everything you are told to report on by the other conglomerates. I think your objectivity makes you special Reuters. That is why I read you and no one else. However for you to parrot what MSM is saying about this Republican race only makes you complicit in the theory that you folks don’t care about the truth but instead prefer to project your ideals of who can win on people that for this election cycle at least, want nothing to do with mainstream politicians. Americans hate their politicians(85 percent think Congress is doing a lousy job) and Ron Paul is a refreshing breath of fresh air. What he proposes to do is what America needs
yet you and your hoards of commentators are SILENT. You don’t make kings because people don’t believe what most MSM write, the American people make kings. Never forget that. Your job is just to report the news, which as far as Ron Paul goes, you stay ignorant and silent about. If you are thinking that just because you write it people will believe it, you Reuters are sadly mistaken. Now let’s go and show some journalistic honesty for a change, write the TRUTH about the race and Ron Paul, and lets see what happens. You’re not afraid are you?
