A recent graphic from the NY Times shows the media coverage quantified as minutes of interview face time for each presidential candidate broken down by network. Fred Thompson has almost no face time except for the 101 minutes given to him by Fox News Channel. Anyone wonder why Thompson is emerging as the top candidate for the Republicans? Apparently News Corp has something to say about it…

Ron Paul was given the most face time from MSNBC and barely any network coverage, only 7 minutes from ABC. Ron Paul wouldn’t have a chance in the election if it wasn’t for services like YouTube and Google video that spread his message. And if his message is heard, it is infectious. It will be hard to stop Ron Paul if his message ever gets picked up by news outlets, that’s why a strong showing in the Straw Poll could have Ron Paul as an unstoppable political force by the end of August.

I sat down (through AIM) with Marc Asbill, the creator of UNC Charlotte – The Real Lowdown to talk about my campaign and some of my goals for UNC Charlotte’s SGA over the next year. Below is a small excerpt, but be sure to visit his blog to read the whole thing,

I saw the campaign videos prepared for Justin Ritchie and Tim Ernst’s campaign, and I have to say I was very impressed not only with the videos themselves, but the forethought that goes into deciding to go to that depth when campaigning for student office. I decided to look into the two a little bit more, and I sat down and had a chat with Justin Ritchie just to see what he was all about. I must say, like his videos, I was very impressed with the man himself.

Justin possesses all the credentials that one would expect in a top tier candidate. He is graduating next year with degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics, he has been a member of SGA since the very first year he was at UNC Charlotte, he has ties to the UNC Charlotte loyal, and he has a strong passion to make the school a better place when he leaves office than the day he is inaugurated.
