Both the Right and Left media are doing everything they can to downplay Paul. Conservative talk shows like Hannity will not mention Ron Paul unless they absolutely have to. Liberal media only uses him to try and show him(and by association conservatives) in a bad light. What really kills me about the Reagan conservatives like Hannity(his own description) is that they have wrapped themselves in the blanket of the Tea Party Movement and are trying to co op it in to a new version of the old GOP. Hannity constantly spouts how he is a part of the Tea Party Movement, then tauts candidates like Newt, who when Tea Party candidates were running against Rinos said you should vote along party lines for the Rinos. Let's not forget the Tea Party Express and FreedomWorks, both of which Dick Armey has had a huge roll in. He's old guard GOP and has successfully re-branded himself as a Tea Party organizer.
