MSM: We Spin, We DecideSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Mon, 08/13/2007 - 11:49
Here's Fox New's take:
Of course, there was no mention of Ron Paul, who finished a respectable 5th, with 9.1% of the vote.
But it wasn't just Fox. This article from the Washington Post lists who finished, first, second, third, fourth, and sixth. They completely skipped the fifth place finisher, Dr. Ron Paul. See for yourself, below.
What is going on here, and what is the best way we can combat this kind of media bias?
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee finished second with 18 percent of the 14,302 votes cast, and Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas ran third with 15 percent. Huckabee and Brownback had waged a fierce battle for the allegiance of Iowa's social and religious conservatives. An ebullient Huckabee said Saturday night that the outcome will give his campaign a significant boost and vowed to coalesce those conservatives in Iowa and other early-voting states.
Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, the most outspoken opponent of current U.S. immigration policy, finished fourth with 14 percent. Former Wisconsin governor Tommy G. Thompson was sixth at 7 percent. He had said he would quit the presidential race if he failed to finish in the top two, and his campaign said late Saturday that he would make an announcement within 48 hours about his candidacy.
