FOX News is on my shit list

and I hope on yours too! They treated him with disrespect in the last election, especially Carl Cameron, and I haven't forgotten. Hannity still does everything to downplay Ron Paul, which tells me that Hannity is a phony.

I hope Dr Paul is aware of

I hope Dr Paul is aware of this.
It disturbs me to think that the response faux news played for him is what He thinks actually happened. He stated he wasn't there for the award.
Dr Ron Paul has thicker skin than anyone I know,
God Bless his patience

Sellout msm never ceases to amaze

The first thing I tell the sheep of the world is about how our media is controlled.

(not to say that he didn’t get a lot of boos again this year, they just weren’t as easily distinguished).

Is that the same timeslot

Is that the same timeslot that the original deception clip aired? They really need to make their retraction on the same show with the same pundit giving Ron Paul an apology and a fair shake by explaining the 'error' and allowin RP to give his reaction to the cheers and applause. Anything less is not enough.

I hope somebody gets it on video so we can add it to this post

to gauge how sincere it was and if all the details were explained or not.

Because you know this will be as low key, brief and short as they can make it, to avoid controversy as much as possible and quickly move on.

"It is unlikely this explanation will satisfy Paul supporters"

We all know it's more than sloppy "journalism".

But I will say this. The internet and communities like ours are making a difference. This is the future of journalism, right here. Collaborative internet communities acting in concert to spread news and ideas far and wide.

Long live the Daily Paul!

F@#k Faux News!

Here it comes... let me guess...

The host thought it was the correct clip, and did not know that there were no boos, but loud cheering?! ...

Was interviewing Paul about last years win? ...

Thought he was interviewing Romney? ...

Thought boos was a sign of friendship and applause?...

Or... let's see it must have been a technician error? ...

They did not have the current clip and needed to use the only one they saved?

Ho hum...


You know Fox won't listen to us unless we really take action. Let FOX know that we are going boycott all their advertisers unless they do a formal apology on air to Ron Paul, and to the listeners, and to air what really happened. I already told FOX this.

Next, call and email all FOX advertisers and let them know why your boycotting them. Money talks! If I can remember correctly, we did this before in "08.

Someone should send this to the other media outlets...

Fox's competition. I would think that they would welcome the opportunity to embarass Fox, even if it does go to further the cause of Liberty.
Just saw the post below Devin. A good idea.

Like a game

Like a match game, notice the nuanced differences... What I notice right away is the badge hanging around his neck in one, and none on the other clip. Otherwise, clothing-wise he's wearing the same outfit! Nice try though!

This is not the 2010 recording!!

Fox News and CPAC made a fake recording. It is the exact phrasing in 2010, however, it can't be from that speech. Listen to this recording on youtube: /watch?v=mSfoGCHMSXo There is a 12 second pause before he reads the first place results. In the fake recording, he says: "The winner of this years CPAC straw poll *pause* is now *pause* OK *pause* Well *pause* Three seconds later: The winner of this years CPAC straw poll is Texas Congressman Ron Paul. 3 seconds vs. 12 seconds. It's impossible to refute.

I posted this below


The winner of the straw poll, this year
(pause for applause)
(pause for applause, chanting of Ron Paul starts)
(pause for applause)
(pause while the audience quiets down)
Congressman, Congressman Ron Paul gets 30%


The winner of this year's CPAC straw poll

(very brief pause)
(pause for boos)

The winner of this year's CPAC straw poll is Texas Congressman Ron Paul

Top comment: Let me know when someone catches them doing journalism.


He's the man.

The media isn't wasting any time in trying to ruin Ron Paul's credibility. They must know he is a real threat to their New World Order agenda.

Notice in the first video (with the boos) the speaker was wearing a dark suit, a blue open collar shirt and there was something that looks like a blue ribbon around his neck. Also the stars and strips in the background are in a different position.

In the second video (with the cheers) the speaker is wearing a dark suit, an open collar blue shirt, but no blue ribbon around his neck.

How can FOX think that they can get away with this, when 11,000 people attended this event and probably hundreds of thousands of people listening to, or watching the event on TV? In a way, I'm glad this happened. It blatantly shows the public how deceptive FOX is and how no one can trust anything coming out of the mainstream media.

This should make everyone angry, no matter who you are for. It is simply terrible what the media is doing to us and to Ron Paul. They think we are all stupid!

Couldn't agree more.

Because they've gotten away with it in the past.

They thought nobody would notice. Things are changing though. People are much more aware.


for Truth!

Does anyone know

if Ron has seen this?

I am pretty sure he won't let this slide.

Keep this bumped ...

until FAUX apologizes.

email fox's competitors

anyone know contact email to rachel maddow, dylan ratigan, anderson cooper, john stewert, colbert... etc etc??? couldnt find maddow's
seems like an easy way to get shows who only want to report on faux news to put ron on people's screens and get people wondering who he is for fox to be doing this...

I can't believe other

I can't believe other corporate news people care...They are also aligned with the agenda to dismiss Ron Paul... How about emailing their advertisers? ... Maybe SNL will do a number. e-mail news agencies outside of USA to get some feedback.


maddow i believe is
rachel@msnbc.com... couldnt find anything on her site
