After ganging up on Ron Paul, Fox News removes his response from future broadcasts of the debate

January 12, 2008

What’s the point of ganging up on a candidate in an attempt to embarrass him, then removing his response from future broadcasts of the debate? It kind of defeats the purpose of showing him as a blubbering incoherent wreck. Unless – wait – he wasn’t a blubbering incoherent wreck, and actually answered the question better than anyone at the South Carolina Republican Debate could.

I’d like to draw your attention to Jason’s excellent analysis of Ron Paul’s treatment, which reveals just how afraid the establishment is of him. And, of-course, the fact that Fox News has cut off his response to their question on his ‘electability’.

Sorry Fox News; better luck hiding the truth next time. And to Ron Paul, excellent job at that debate – you remained cool, took everything they threw at you, and dished it right back at them.

Oh, and something new – if you’re interested in this, take a look at gillard’s compilation of Ron Paul’s responses in the same debate, well worth viewing.

Fox News Excludes Ron Paul from Debate because he isn’t a Freedom-Hating Right-Winger

January 2, 2008

This press release says it all – that right-wing news channel, (that’s an insult by the way) has decided to exclude Ron Paul from their New Hamshire forum; a candidate who believes in constitutional freedom and has sensible ideas is apparently too much for the fervently right-wing news station to handle. Never mind the fact that he polls above Fred Thompson, (who has been invited) in the state and that his libertarian message resonates widely in New Hampshire. This blogger, although not a supporter of Ron Paul, also feels that this action is unfair. Mr. Cullen, chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party, is to be commended for his efforts to secure a place for Ron Paul in the forum.

Update: Ron Paul supporters are boycotting Fox News – how much do they stand to lose?
