UnNews:Ron Paul is disliked by ABC and Fox News
1 January 2008
A Fox News spokesmen commented on the decision yesterday:
|We don't care about Ron Paul and his biased views. This is not an opinion, this is a fact given how horribly he is doing in polls. Why even bother having him appear if we know he won't win?|
ABC News had a slightly different response, saying:
|We don't have enough chairs for him to appear and he was voted off the island because he sucks.|
Since Ron Paul was left out in the weekend debates, Tim Russert, host of Meet the Press, invited Paul to appear on his show. Paul accepted the invitation. He wasn't actually shown on Television, butt had a casual conversation with Russert as he had nowhere else to go. The fact that NBC invited Paul led many to question if NBC is a more liberal station than ABC and Fox News as Ron Paul has varied views on the Iraq War.
Despite not having ABC's and Fox News's endorsement, Ron Paul has thousands of fans, all of which were angered by the news and warned of forming an angry mob around the stations. Some Paul supporters also plan to boycott Fox advertises and others will intend to desperately spam in the hopes of Paul winning the election.
