As everyone now knows, the media ignored Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul in the aftermath of his virtual tie with Michele Bachmann in the Ames straw poll. Blogs were all over it last week. Jon Stewart did a segment on the matter, as did Piers Morgan. There was even a study about it. Just yesterday, Howard Kurtz’s CNN show “Reliable Sources” drilled in on the Ron Paul media problem for the second time in as many weeks.

At what point does the fact of the Ron Paul media blackout become the a Ron Paul media bonanza?
