I would say a lot more then did but with Dr. Paul the media had a very very strong bias against him. To see this you only need to watch the 2nd CNN Republican debate where Anderson Cooper would not let Dr. Paul speak. He would cut Dr. Paul off mid-word. This effectively limits Dr. Paul to very small sound bites which the majority of people do not understand. I have plenty of other examples. If he was given fair coverage and still lost then I would feel much better about it.
The media is owned by big business and hence they are biased in that direction. Hopefully the internet will be able to change that before it is overregulated.
