He's a candidate that's getting a lot of media coverage about how little media coverage he says he's getting.
Confused? So was Bill O'Reilly after Ron Paul rejected his invitation to come on his show, The O'Reilly Factor. Mediaite reports that O'Reilly extended the invitation right after he heard Rep. Paul tell Megyn Kelly he was being consistently ignored by the media.
"Ron Paul is whining to Megyn, and then we invite him on and he doesn’t show up,” O’Reilly lamented to guest, Dick Morris on Wednesday.
Morris said Rep. Paul probably rejected the invitation because he thinks the candidate wouldn't be able to address probing questions. O'Reilly and Morris discussed Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Rep. Michele Bachmann and decided they were the top three GOP candidates who could beat President Barack Obama in 2012.
Rep. Paul and O'Reilly do have a bit of history. "I have said to Mr. Paul’s face that some of his opinions are insane," O'Reilly said, but that there is a steadfast group who love him.
O'Reilly and Morris discuss Rep. Paul's concerns over coverage and his stance on big issues in this Meidiaite clip from Fox News right before the 3:00 mark.
