On August 15, 2011, Jon Stewart devoted several minutes of “The Daily Show” to a rant about how the media is ignoring 2012 candidate for President of the United States, Congressman Ron Paul. Ron Paul was the 1988 Libertarian nominee for President, who supports libertarian views, but is currently running for the Republican Party nomination. Stewart referred to him as “Libertarian Ron Paul”, and noted how reluctant the media was to cover Ron Paul’s campaign, or even to mention Ron Paul’s numerical success, in the Iowa straw poll.
