UPDATE- I sent the letter. Here's hoping the media starts asking Fox for comment on this.
According to the New Hampshire State Republican Party and an Associated Press report(1), Republican presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul will be excluded from an upcoming forum of Republican candidates to be broadcast by Fox News on January 6, 2008. The AP article says "Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson" will be participating in the debate.
If Ron Paul isn't included then neither should McCain, Huckabee or Thompson. In Iowa/New Hampshire Ron Paul is either higher than or tied with Thompson or McCain and is close to Huckabee in the polls(2). In addition, Ron Paul recently broke the single day fund-raising record of all time in politics, taking in over $6 million dollars in a 24 hour period(3)- he's already raised more money in the 4th quarter then any other Republican did last quarter(4). Lastly, Ron Paul has won the lion's share of Republican straw polls conducted throughout the country- far and above any other candidate(5). Not to mention the fact that Ron Paul literally is the most popular, searched for candidate on the internet(6).
Given that, how can Fox News exclude Ron Paul from an event such as this, just two days before the New Hampshire primary? What possible justification can they provide?

3:25:00 AM Ron Paul will be excluded from an upcoming forum of Republican candidates to be broadcast by Fox News on January 6, 2008It's official - According to a press release distributed by Ron Paul's campaign, and according to the New Hampshire State Republican Party and an Associated Press report, Republican presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul will be excluded from an upcoming forum of Republican candidates to be broadcast by Fox News on January 6, 2008.
Wow, what possible justification could Fox News have for this? Could it be that he didn't raise enough money? - or is it that he's not polling high enough? - I mean, they certainly shouldn't be inviting Huckabee and Fred Thompson given those latest numbers- and in terms of fund raising he literally cannot be beat.
So what is it Fox? What is it. It's so unbelievable that I still don't believe it's true. I've written to Fox to ask them why, but I think it's going to take a New York Times or Washington Post phone call to really get an answer.Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

10:36:00 PM Tea Party a SUCCESS!!!!!!Holy crap! We broke the record AGAIN!!!! AWESOME! Seriously, I couldn't be more proud, and the day is not even over yet!
Today was a serious snow day, and my Ron Paul yard sign has been missing in action for a week or two now since it got buried in a snow bank created by a plow running down my street. Well, today it got buried under lots more snow that fell and even more from the snow plows. However I was energized by the tea party rally and went wild in the snow bank where I though the sign was buried. I FOUND IT! - Here is a shot of it's new home, on top of a big rock in packed in snow.
This time I've tied a rope to the bottom of it and attached the rope to a tree limb so if it gets knocked over again I can find it easier. That'll show those mean anti-Paul snow plows who's boss!
Meanwhile, viva la Tea Party 2007!!!!!!!!!!!! RON PAUL 2008!Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us
